San Francisco - October 29, 2014 - Voxer, a leader in unified real-time voice and instant messaging collaboration, today announced the availability of a purpose-built appliance designed to enable government organizations to deploy the Voxer service over their own networks. The Voxer Appliance helps ensure end-to-end security and gives government organizations the ability to determine how, when and where their user information, voice and text data are stored, accessed and maintained.
“Integrated, secure, and easy-to-use communication solutions are key to enabling the success of the government’s mobile workforce initiatives,” said Michael Shrader, vice president of Intelligence and Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft. “Voxer’s innovative application allows our government customers to communicate through high quality live and recorded voice messages, as well as multimedia messages, using their mobile devices.”
“Voxer’s appliance elegantly solves many of the critical shortfalls and potentially deadly frustrations previously inherent in tactical communications and provides reliably networked operations even in communications-austere environments,” said Peter Dixon, CEO of Second Front Systems, a national security accelerator bridging the divide between the high-technology and public sectors. “For organizations and agencies that operate at the point of action, the Voxer appliance is welcome relief for a decades-old problem set.”
Voxer can be deployed on almost any device, including cell phones and tablets running iOS or Android and on laptops running OS X or Windows. It also runs over any network, including cell and Wi-Fi. Voxer is currently in use by thousands of businesses and 50 million consumers globally.
The Voxer Appliance includes Voxer Business Manager software in addition to Android, iOS and web browser clients. All communication between clients and Voxer Appliance is encrypted using TLS.
“The introduction of the Voxer Appliance is further demonstration of our commitment to give government organizations the tools they need to connect instantly, regardless of device type, OS or network,” said Irv Remedios, president of Voxer. “With growing numbers of government agencies adopting Voxer to enable real-time communications, ensuring deployment flexibility and secure manageability is more important than ever.”
Voxer was founded in 2007 with the vision to make worldwide communication easy and more efficient. The privately held San Francisco-based company launched its first consumer walkie-talkie and text-messaging application Voxer in 2011. Voxer now offers a high-performance push-to-talk service for enterprises, Voxer Business. The company has raised $30 million in funding from Institutional Venture Partners, Intel Capital, SV Angel, CrunchFund and other investors. To learn more, please visit www.voxer.com.
