Cotap Named a Box Assured App

Cotap Meets Rigorous Security and Privacy Requirements to Join New Box App Ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - April 22, 2015) - Cotap, an enterprise mobile messaging service, today announced its certification as a Box Assured App. The Box Assured Program assessed the enterprise-readiness of Cotap in the Box app ecosystem, ensuring that it met a series of critical industry security and privacy requirements. Through the program, Box accelerates the adoption of business and productivity apps for customers by expediting the security evaluation process for IT teams and helps get the right apps in the hands of employees.

"When you use Cotap, you trust us to secure your data and ensure your privacy. That's a responsibility we take very seriously, so we choose only the most advanced security technologies, policies and partners to protect our customers' data," said Jim Patterson, CEO and co-founder, Cotap. "Participating in the Box Assured App program means new users and customers can feel confident choosing our app because they know we've met the high standards for security and privacy they've come to expect from enterprise apps."

Cotap announced its integration with Box at the company's annual user conference, BoxWorks, last year. Key features of the integration include:

  • Quick and seamless file sharing between individuals or groups with just a few taps, similar to sharing a photo in most messaging apps
  • High-fidelity preview across a wide range of file formats, eliminating the need to download or save content to a computer
