Fax Technology Is Still the Most Secure Way to Transmit Documents
It’s a busy time of the year for electronics. With huge events like E3 and Apple’s (News - Alert) 2012 Worldwide Developer’s Conference taking place in June, it’s easy for the average consumer to overlook Cisco Live U.S., taking place from June 10-14 at the San Diego Convention Center. However, tens of thousands of customers are expected to turn up to talk tech and have some fun.
Yes, Cisco (News - Alert) Live U.S. looks to mix business with pleasure as companies will be there to showcase new or existing products — companies like CallCopy (News - Alert) which will be showcasing its cc: Discover workforce optimization solution. Unless you’re a hobbyist workforce optimizer, something like that would be classified as business. On the pleasure side, American alt-rock band Weezer will play a set at the event. In a bit of the marriage of business and pleasure, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters will deliver the keynote address at Cisco Live U.S.
With all of the flash and dazzle that goes into an event like this, it’s easy to overlook the more basic, yet often used technologies that make it run. For example, all of the contracts that need to be signed to setup an event like this were probably faxed around in order to get all of the required signatures quickly and easily. While there are digital fax alternatives available, faxing is still the preferred method worldwide for secure information exchange and is still widely used, mostly because it is the secure way to send documents.
This is why the OpenText Fax and Document Distribution Group (FDDG) still exists today, offering a wide range of fax-based document delivery solutions including basic fax appliances for smaller companies and enterprise-grade server solutions capable of supporting lots of fax traffic. In fact, FDDG’s flagship enterprise offering, RightFax, boasts more than 100,000 installations worldwide with customers including large banking institutions, regional health networks and government agencies.
It may not be flashy, but fax technology is reliable and, most importantly, secure.
