Creating a Secure Enterprise Social Network

Creating a Secure Enterprise Social Network

Yammer is an incredibly useful tool for business. The scrambls team has been using Yammer to accelerate the development of the scrambls service, and Yammer has helped us to collaborate with team members spread across different time zones. As a cloud-based service, Yammer gives CIOs serious pause for thought. Valuable corporate data is being placed outside the corporate firewall. Yammer's Master Services Agreement states that "Yammer is not responsible for any public display or misuse of Customer’s Data, except in the case of gross negligence or intentional misconduct by Yammer or Yammer’s employees." Further, Yammer's MSA gives an explicit warning that "Yammer cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use Customer’s Data for improper purposes. Customer acknowledges that all Customer’s Data is provided at Customer’s and your Authorized Users’ own risk."

We use scrambls to add a second layer of protection for all of the proprietary data we post to Yammer. Other Yammer customers can do this too, simply by signing up for a scrambls account, installing the scrambls browser plugin, and then signing into Yammer as usual. We put together a quick video to show just how simple it is to use scrambls and Yammer together.
