Ready to find out how to stay connected and secure with Rinkel? Let’s dive in! 

1. Use Secure Applications

The first step to securing your communications is to use secure and reliable applications. Business telephony apps like the Rinkel app are designed with multiple layers of security to protect your data and calls. It’s important to check the privacy policy of a business to see how a business handles your personal data. In Rinkel’s privacy you can find that Rinkel complies with privacy laws and regulations. This means that your personal and other data is safe with us, and we will process it properly. Additionally, use security applications such as Norton Mobile Security or Avast Mobile Security to provide extra protection against malware and other threats. Also, avoid downloading apps from untrusted sources that may risk your device's security.  

2. Multi-Factor Authentication

Implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA) is crucial. This security measure requires users to verify their identity through two or more authentication methods before accessing the app. With Rinkel, we already verify your phone number with a text message after you login via the app. If you want even more security, you can use apps like Google Authenticator or Authy to enable MFA. Using any of these apps, you can easily set up MFA, adding an extra layer of protection to your business communications. 

3. Data Encryption

Data encryption is a technique that turns information into a code, making unauthorized access difficult. Ensure that your company's communications and data are encrypted. Rinkel uses very strong encryption to protect sensitive information during calls and storage, ensuring your virtual phone system is secure to use. Additionally, consider using encrypted messaging apps such as Signal or WhatsApp for secure communication. 

4. Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Mobile device management allows you to control and protect the mobile devices used in your company. Implementing an MDM solution helps monitor and manage devices, ensuring security policies are followed. Examples of MDM solutions include VMware AirWatch and Microsoft Intune. Rinkel makes a difference between a user and an admin user. An admin user can add or remove users from the account, which makes it possible to manage and control the devices accessing your communication system. 

5. Security Updates and Patches

Keep your devices and apps always updated. Security updates and patches fix vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit. Enable automatic updates for your operating system and apps, and regularly check for updates. Rinkel ensures its platform is always updated with the latest security measures, providing a safe environment for your business information. 

Why Choose Rinkel for Your Business Security?

Rinkel not only facilitates the management of business communications but also emphasizes security. Here are some reasons why Rinkel is a secure choice for your company: 

  • Secure Storage: Rinkel stores all your information securely, protecting it from unauthorized access. Your data is always safeguarded with the industry's best security practices.
