There’s a lot of exciting news to be found on the Lync Migration site this week. Whether you’re interested in hearing about Office 365, live meeting translations being offered during video conferences, Sonus or AppRiver, Lync Migration has all the latest on each new aspect and innovation of Skype for Business. With that in mind, let’s take a look at this week’s happenings.

TMC’s (News - Alert) Peter Bernstein started off the week by putting things into perspective for us. Everything is moving to the cloud and, with security breaches on the rise, it is more important than ever to make sure that your systems are secure. Most businesses primarily use email for communicating, which is great, as long as proper precautions are set up to ensure that the system is safe. Now that Microsoft (News - Alert) has unleashed Microsoft Office 365, it is imperative that companies keep an eye out for suspicious activity when transferring to the new system. For all the details on keeping your information safe during this migration, check out this article.

This week has good news for multilingual users of Skype (News - Alert) for Business. Several people use Skype’s Meeting broadcast every day for presentations. Previously, though, these presentations were only able to be viewed in the native language of the speaker, leaving viewers who do not speak that language out of the look. A new development, powered by Bing Translator, will allow for live meeting translation, making life much easier for all viewers. You can find all the details HERE.

In other news, Sonus Networks (News - Alert) announced this week that it has has received Microsoft Skype for Business’ certification for their full portfolio of Session Border Controllers (SBCs). The Skype for Business Certification Program lets Microsoft customers identify third-party solutions that deliver high quality experience and compatibility when used with Skype for Business.

To wrap up the week, AppRiver, a company that specializes in cyber security and productive services, announced that it will make unlimited dial-in conferencing available for Skype for Business. This is big news for users, who can now initiate conference calls on their computers, cell phones or landlines for a variety of audiences.
