This is to discuss something regarding Microsoft Skype for business. Recently from a blog, I read some advantages about this http://www.thinktel.ca/blog/general-category/5-reasons-use-microsoft-skype-business/. Is there any windows mobile app versions of Skype for business. If then, can I get all facilities as in the desktop version. I have one more question related to this. Can I share HIPAA, FERPA, or other sensitive data using Skype for Business? I am expecting your replies. Thank you in advance.

Skype is mostly used for making video calls, texts and most of the business companies use Skype to connect with their clients. All the Skype to Skype calls, videos , file transfer and instant messages are encrypted that is why business companies use it for remote team conference.

Hey, can I ask you, are all Skype calls encrypted or only those in Skype for Business?
If I only use the regular Skype program, not the 'for Business' version, are my calls encrypted too? :)

Skype is Skype, is only Business service pack what You can buy, if You need it. There is some special services and some limitations for some usual services limits are increased. It is all for additional price and can be bought by user and by months.
But usually the servicepack is related with some other Microsoft product. For example with Office 365 Business Essentials or Office 365 Business Premium.
One other
 
PS. If you want to know how things really are, always read the original/source, but not any blog or reseller. website.

richardbaker -  While Skype to Skype transmissions are encrypted and theoretically safe for most sensitive data,  Skype is NOT Hipaa compliant.

 

Just_One_Question - yes, all Skype to Skype transmissions are encrypted
