etherFAX Releases DirectFax Messenger Integration for Microsoft Teams

By CIOReview | Tuesday, September 14, 2021
HOLMDEL, N.J. - etherFAX today announced its integration with Microsoft Teams. Now available in the Microsoft Store, etherFAX’s DirectFax™ Messenger allows Microsoft users to send and receive faxes and other business documents seamlessly and securely using Teams. With DirectFax, users can transmit digital, high-resolution, and rich color documents to other applications within the etherFAX ecosystem as well as traditional fax machines.

“We’re proud to continue to grow the etherFAX ecosystem with new app integrations,” said Paul Banco, CEO and co-founder of etherFAX. “Now more than ever, organizations need innovative tools to support remote workforces and improve business processes. The ability to securely send and receive faxes and documents with superior color and clarity from Microsoft Teams gives organizations more flexibility and scalability than ever before.”

DirectFax™ Messenger allows Teams users to securely send and receive faxes and other business documents via the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN), a patented Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution. etherFAX SEN is the world's largest fax network, leveraging hybrid cloud technology to provide 100 percent secure communications. etherFAX's DirectFax solution via SEN provides Microsoft Teams users with guaranteed security and data protection, as etherFAX is HITRUST CSF and PCI DSS certified as well as HIPAA and SOC 2 compliant.

Through the integration, Microsoft Teams users can leverage etherFAX SEN to securely transport business-critical information via Teams without having to change a single workflow. As a cloud-based solution, etherFAX does not require a fax server or additional software. DirectFax can be installed for each Teams user one-on-one or can be installed in an existing channel. The DirectFax Teams integration also allows for incoming documents to be routed to specific Teams Channels, thus allowing for an automated digital workflow so the right team receives the right information. etherFAX’s DirectFax integration with Teams also allows users to receive searchable and archivable PDFs directly to their Teams channel.
