HIMSS15 Trade Show Vendor Highlight: TigerText

In this series, we are featuring some of the thousands of vendors who will be participating in the HIMSS15 conference and trade show.

About Statement

TigerText provides secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, empowering organizations to work more securely.
