Digital Week 2020: Oh, What a Week It Was!
Something big just happened. And it was amazing. Our very first truly digital mega event, Digital Week 2020, just wrapped in the Americas and EMEA. For those of us who joined us live, we hope you felt as invigorated and inspired as we did. We had 2,225 people sign up to participate. We had 75+ unique sessions of content — from thought-leading discussions with analysts and influencers to zippy, quick tech roundtables and coffee chats. We covered a wide range of topics, trends, and technologies.   We had more attendees at our keynotes — and more meetings and conversations — than ever before. Dion Hinchcliffe (from Constellation Research) and Wayne Kurtzman (from IDC) both signalled to the market that we are a low-code powerhouse. We had major product releases — including the world premiere of our new game-changer, HCL Volt MX (that session had more than 500 attendees to show up for this blockbuster news). In addition, we launched new, exciting versions of HCL Digital Experience, HCL Sametime Premium, HCL Connections v7, and gave a preview of HCL Domino v12 and our vision for the future of the digital office.  For data geeks, check this out: We had 2+ terabytes and 35 hours of content — plus almost 50 hours of breakout HCL Sametime meeting rooms. Oh, and only 5 instances of “can you hear me?,” 7 of “is this on?” and 27 of “you’re on mute.” Plus 11,250 beverages were consumed at the coffee chats and happy hours. And ZERO miles were traveled. Watch this video, which captures the buzz and energy perfectly.   Thank you for joining us. You helped us achieve bigger conversations, bigger sessions, and bigger releases. Thank you for making our first truly digital event as possible and powerful as it was — and we have another great lineup for the first week in December for our customers, partners, and friends in APJ.    We are poised and ready...

The 4 Keys to Enterprise Chat Apps. What is secure enterprise chat, and why do I need it?
In today’s work world, chat and video meetings are integral to getting work done.  But organizations need to pick solutions that are safe, cost-effective, and make sense for the business. And, given the global push toward remote work, employee engagement is key. Connecting employees in a meaningful way takes more than just an easy chat feature. It’s also ensuring that the information shared is reaching the intended audience — while meeting the regulatory standards of your industry. Providing your teams with a secure chat messaging accomplishes both important goals — connection and protection — freeing your enterprise from security and compliance concerns and creating more time to focus on doing great work. But what, specifically, makes secure chat important, and why should enterprise companies care? Employees are Already Using Chat Apps, But They Need Secure Messaging The reality is that most people are using a chat service to connect with colleagues. Knowing that should motivate enterprises to standardize the chat platform it offers its employees. Not offering a secure chat option won’t deter employees from using a messaging app, it will just result in them using whatever chat service they personally like, secure or not.  This is also known as a shadow IT problem. A universal chat solution can streamline workflow while enhancing the company's data transparency and keeping things secure. As mobile messaging platforms continue to grow in popularity and functionality, people accustomed to consumer messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger will incorporate those into their work life unless given an alternative.  Those consumer platforms are fine for personal chat, but the end-to-end encryption they include blocks access to communication data that is required in many enterprise verticals. The solutions your organization provides needs to be easy to use, secure, and modern. Enterprise systems must provide a collaboration...

Why End-to-End Encryption Isn’t Always What You Want: 4 Important Insights
Enterprise companies choosing a web chat platform value software that will protect vital data.  Ensuring secure messaging and the larger security reputation of the organization is not only a goal but a requirement.  And encryption is a fundamental pillar of that security.     But not all encryption is the same. And the differences matter.  Let’s cover some of the encryption basics and explain why end-to-end encryption isn’t always the best option for enterprises.    Here Are Four Insights Worth Knowing When You Go Shopping for Secure Chat Software  What is end-to-end encryption?     End-to-end has expanded in use due to messaging apps like WhatsApp and iMessage and is lauded for the closed channel it provides users weary of data breaches. End-to-end encryption ensures that only the sender and recipient of a message are able to read it; the message is encrypted on the sender’s end and can only be accessed when unlocked by a private key on the recipient’s end.     In this way the entire communication is blocked from outside examination, available only to the two parties: the sender and the recipient.  2. The downside of using encryption that is end-to-end  The same reason end-to-end is appealing to individuals — the impossibility of accessing data or messages from the outside — makes it less functional for enterprise companies that have regulatory and auditability requirements.  The same factors that protect perfectly legal and safe messages also protect illegal and illicit material, creating a safe space of sorts for malicious parties who can use end-to-end encryption to escape detection and cause harm.   In effect, the privacy upside of end-to-end benefits everyone, including individuals or groups intent on using that privacy for ill.    3. There are alternatives   Despite the growing awareness and popularity of end-to-end, there are alternative encryption methods that are important for enterprise customers to be aware of.  Just because encryption software isn’t end-to-end doesn’t mean it isn’t safe and protected.  In fact, many enterprise companies...
