If you want to assemble a work group or use VIPole for secure communication between employees of a small company, then VIPole Security for Teams is your ideal solution.
To manage a group of VIPole users you get a special group Team Account on our server. The owners and administrators of a Team Account can manage user profiles and security settings directly from the VIPole application using the built-in extension. Payment for the service is done from a single settlement account for all members of a Team Account.
For members of a Team Account a full featured VIPole Secure Instant Messenger is provided for four different platforms: Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Android.
VIPole Team Account Features
Advanced Security Settings
Manage user data encryption
A Team Account enables the administrator of the account to assign or generate passwords and encryption keys and assign secret phrases to members. If the secret phrase is assigned by the administrator, not by the user, the administrator of the account can read the user’s messages, access his files and notes. Thus, the administrator of a Team Account can get access to any data of any member of the group and decrypt it.
Block access to data stored on the user's device
If a special access mode is activated, the administrator of a Team Account can control access to data in VIPole stored on the user’s computer or smartphone. If this mode is used, a user of a Team Account can open and read local VIPole data on his device only after authorization on the server. This mode makes it possible to quickly block access to data or even delete it from the user’s device in case of device theft or unauthorized access.
Monitor user IP connections
A Team Account makes it possible to restrict access to data on the VIPole server using the IP address of the user's device. Thus, the administrator of a Team Account can monitor connections and determine IP addresses from which users can connect to VIPole. For example, the administrator can allow access only from the company’s computers and disable connection from personal devices.
Additional security modes
For each member of a Team Account additional protection mode can be configured: one can assign a fake secret phrase to activate protection mode if the user is forced to open the account by outsiders; configure application lock and automatic logout when idle or offline for a certain time.
Team Account Administrator Panel
Control of VIPole Corporate Server settings and users can be implemented directly from the VIPole client. VIPole has a special built-in extension for VIPole server administration, protected by a password. The administrator panel makes it possible to:
Manage team account members

Manage members' profile settings
