Virgil Security is delighted to publicly unveil our partnership with Twilio. We’re empowering Twilio’s 900,000+ developers to deliver amazing communication apps on the Twilio IP Messaging platform now with end-to-end encryption provided via our Virgil Crypto SDK and Key Management.

Twilio IP Messaging enables in-app chat between multiple parties via the Web and mobile applications. The service supports message synchronization so that users can instantly access chat history and engage in conversations from different devices. Advanced messaging features such as typing indicator, message read status, topic search and mobile push notifications enable developers to easily add comprehensive chat functionality to any application.

Now, with just a few lines of code and a few minutes of time, developers using Twilio IP Messaging can add end-to-end encryption to their communication apps.

You can start adding Virgil enabled end-to-end encryption to your Twilio IP Messaging app today at Twilio Start.

Regulatory Compliance

Around the world, regulators are paying more attention to privacy and security and are passing laws demanding higher levels of security.

Depending on the regulatory atmosphere of your industry or geography, end-to-end encryption may be required for your communications app. Some regulatory regimes that may require end-to-end encryption include:

  • Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)
  • Florida Information Protection Act (FIPA)
  • Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH)

With Virgil Security’s end-to-end encryption, Twilio developers can now more easily enter and serve regulated markets.
