Security technology is only as good as it is easy to use.  There is always a balance between security posture (which varies widely from entity to entity) and convenience.  Halo started with open source solutions that were hardened to deliver services that are familiar to users.  Tools like Slack™, Dropbox™ and Skype™ have become the norm for business and personal work flow. While all these have great functionality, entities lose control of their data.  Halo provides a familiar and known experience, affording organizations the privacy, security and control that is essential for critical operations.
