Partnership with Nine23 provides users with easy to use, secure transparent communications and messaging while protecting enterprise data

London, 26 February 2019: Armour Communications, a leading provider of specialist, secure communications solutions, has announced that its solutions, Armour Mobile and Armour Desktop are now available on Nine23’s certified enterprise management platform, FLEX. Armour Comms’ solutions will be offered via Nine23’s FLEX platform, which is accredited to handle information up to OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE, enabling enterprise users to securely use mobile, tablet, and laptop devices from any operating system including iOS, Android and Windows10.
Stuart McKean CEO of Nine23 said; “At Nine23 we work with Enterprise clients that operate in highly regulated environments and regard secure communications as necessary for everyday operations. They often have significant members of staff who need to be able to rely on a robust, secure environment to meet the needs of today’s modern mobile or remote working.

“Our proposition is to make it easy for users to access the technology that they need to do a day’s work. If it isn’t easy then they will go elsewhere, creating a potential security vulnerability. Armour Comms’ solutions offer the strength of security that our clients demand, while still being designed with the end user in mind. Platform FLEX is already accredited to connect to the PSN as a gateway provider and Armour’s technology adds value to our platform offering.”

With its focus on interoperability Armour Mobile was the first secure communications app to connect to Skype for Business. Nine23’s FLEX platform also meets the entire management and audit requirements for Unified endpoint Management (UEM), App Store, Content Management and secure endpoint hosting.

David Holman, Director at Armour Comms commented; “Nine23 is an established provider of a secure cloud environment that enables enterprise mobility to a high security standard. Armour Comm’s partnership with Nine23 is an ideal way for enterprise end users, inside and external to an organisation, to communicate transparently within a secure and private, hosted environment. Our solutions are intuitive and easy to use and together with Nine23’s enterprise cloud platform provide a secure, robust platform for ultimate control of communications and associated meta data.”
