Mercury Workspace Key Features:
The Mercury Platform is the first communications solution to implement Messaging Layer Security (MLS) on a commercial scale. It leverages Asynchronous Ratcheting Tree (ART), AES 256-bit audio and video encryption, Elliptic Curve Cryptography, TLS encryption, Perfect-Post Compromise Security (PCS) and Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) encryption protocols to encode messages, file sharing, calls and video conferencing. The platform also comes with secure data archiving options, options for public, password protected and private meetings, secure custom links for instant meetings and zero-trust verification for participants.
The solution offers Biometric Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to securely access the Mercury platform using either face ID, touch ID or portable security devices. Clients can access the platform from any authorized web browser and those with Apple iPhones can download it as an application from the App Store (there is currently no application for Android users, however they can still access Mercury via a browser). Guest users have the option to access Mercury via a browser, with no need to download an application. Further, encryption keys are only held by clients and Secured Communications does not scalp or sell client’s data.
Hosts can choose who can access a group, authorizing individual browsers and devices. They are also able to lock meetings, videos and screen shares, mute audio and remove unwanted participants. The platform offers clients full screen and gallery view, allowing messenger groups to be operated whilst in a video call.
The Mercury platform offers HD audio and video, with one-click group video huddles, online or call-in audio options, integrated toll call-in audio, toll-free number options (upgrade) and call-in lines for the USA, UK and Australia. Capable of syncing on mobile and desktop, simplistic controls to create new groups and direct messages, direct message within a group, rich text editor for messaging, limitless file size sharing, an intuitive administrative portal, screen and window sharing for all participants, options to record meetings, full screen and gallery view (allows for messaging whilst on call), active speaker indicator, unlimited time for meetings and integration with Outlook/Google Calendar.
