Worldr will expand its presence in the US with a dedicated office in New York City that will support the company’s ongoing relationship with Microsoft and is also expanding its operations into the Middle East, including building a dedicated team based in Dubai. The Worldr architecture offers enterprise-level security and compliance by storing all communications and files within the customer’s own environment. Bypassing a third-party provider’s own servers allows organisations to retain full ownership of their enterprise data, so employees can continue using the platforms they love without the added risk to their data.
This immediate need to overcome the compliance and auditing issues introduced by the use of WhatsApp in regulated industries has driven the launch of Worldr for WhatsApp. This comes as financial regulators in the US and UK are clamping down on the use of private messaging applications, with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issuing a total of $1.8bn in fines across 16 US banking institutions.
