Microsoft and India-based cloud communications firm Tanla Platforms have launched a blockchain-based communications platform-as-a-service aimed to offer more private and secure messaging.

  • According to an announcement Thursday, Microsoft was the development partner and architect behind Wisely, which is being targeted at enterprises, mobile carriers, over-the-top content providers and more.
  • The edge-to-edge encrypted platform is built on Microsoft Azure as a global network for secure communications including SMS, email and chat messages.
  • Businesses can access the network via a single application programming interface (API) offering multi-channel capabilities. 
  • Building Wisely with blockchain technology brings "complete data visibility, enabling a single source of truth for all stakeholders," according to the firms.
  • Wisely said it has now been granted three patents in cryptography and blockchain processes by the United States Patents & Trademark Office.
  • The Wisely platform will be sold by both companies globally.
