It’s a no brainer that when communication overcomes cultural and language barriers, opportunities for growth arises. In this regard, interpreting services have played a key role in helping businesses globalize by conveying information, ideologies, and objectives. However, adopting effective and in-budget interpreting services has been a herculean task for companies and event organizers. Firstly, finding an interpreter with the right language skills and knowledge of the subject area is a task easier said than done. Add to that the hustle and expenses of arranging flight tickets and accommodation for interpreters, which drives up the cost of hosting events. Next comes the complications associated with setting up the AV equipment and interpreting booth at the event location. On the other hand, in the wake of the pandemic and increasing work from home trends, the challenges associated with adopting quality interpreting services manifest as data security and privacy risks during online meetings, connectivity issues, and—from a technical standpoint—shortcomings associated with seamlessly integrating the interpreting services with the platforms for online meetings and events.

Addressing such challenges is Interprefy. The company offers a leading remote simultaneous interpreting platform built to deliver interpreting services remotely to virtual, hybrid, or on-site meetings and events. Interprefy’s cloud-based interpreting platform enables interpreters to work anywhere globally and allows participants to listen to simultaneous interpretation in their language. While eliminating the need to hire and deploy specialized hardware, interpreting booths, and interpreters, the platform allows greater flexibility and reduces costs without compromising the quality of interpreting. “Our mission to break down language barriers is accomplished by the Interprefy platform that allows interpreters to connect, operate and deliver remotely,” says Andrey Schukin, CTO of Interprefy.

The platform offers clients the flexibility to use their existing logins from their active directory to connect to meetings. In addition, the Interprefy platform allows data encryption of real-time streaming to enhance security. All the audio and video streams are encrypted using 256-bit encryption, while two-factor authentication via SMS or email governs access to the tool. Interprefy is working on getting an ISO 27001 certification to credibilize the platform’s information security management capabilities.

We work with language service providers all across the world to ensure we find the right interpreting services for your event with your subject area


Through its channel host management feature, Interprefy allows the control of interpreter interfaces and enables remote participants to choose languages, channels, and microphone controls. In case the user chooses the wrong channel, the platform offers the flexibility to override user choice or allow the host to remotely switch between the channels. Catering to events of all shapes and sizes, Interprefy offers a multitude of solutions to access interpreting on Interprefy's Connect Pro web conferencing platform, integrate into third-party platforms and to connect on-site AV equipment to the platforms. Participants can use either browser access or an app on their smartphones or even traditional radio headsets to listen to the language of their choice. Moreover, the Interprefy platform also allows live captioning and searchable recordings in multiple languages. In effect, the platform allows to seamlessly manage multilingual meetings with thousands of participants worldwide.

Joao Garcia, Head of Development at Interprefy, elaborates, "We work with language service providers all across the world to ensure we find the right interpreting services for your event with your subject area. There is no limit to the number of participants or number of languages provided." To this end, the company has strategically built a worldwide Interprefy Partner Network.

Garcia narrates an instance where an international organization approached Interprefy to connect two different active directory systems—one for their internal employees and the other for their external guests. The purpose was to run large assemblies of around 500 participants, all connected remotely through the Interprefy platform. There were people from around 150 participating countries, and each had one representative. The client could leverage Interprefy’s platform and successfully facilitate communication connections as needed, making it incredibly easy for the client to host an online event for more than 250 people in 6 languages. All the data in transit was encrypted.

Being one of the few online communication platforms that allow multilingual meetings gives Interprefy a competitive advantage over conferencing solutions in the market. Having carved their niche as a leading software for remote interpretation and multilingual meetings, Interprefy plans to grow its customer base by providing a better client experience that centers on democratizing multilingual meetings for everyone across the globe.

Study: US, UK, and Saudi Arabia lead in commitment to cybersecurity

Cybersecurity practices are constantly evolving as new technologies emerge.



According to recent Atlas VPN team findings, the United States, United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia lead in commitment to cybersecurity. However, many countries still lack training and education programs for many professionals.



The United States earned a perfect score of 100, getting all 20 points in each GCI indicator. However, while the US has the most cybersecurity resources, the latest cyberattacks on Americans have shown room for improvement.



The United Kingdom follows behind, scoring 99.54 points in GCI. The score indicates that the UK has to employ more computer incident response teams, enabling a country to respond to incidents at the national level using a centralized contact point and promote quick and systematic action.



Saudi Arabia shares second place, getting the same score of 99.54 as the UK. While being one of the fastest developing countries, Saudi Arabia has placed great importance on cybersecurity.



Estonia takes the fourth slot as they scored 99.48, losing just half a point in the capacity development indicator. Estonia has become one of the heavyweights in cybersecurity with a high-functioning central system for monitoring, reporting, and resolving incidents.



The Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Spain all share fifth place, scoring 98.52 points.



Cybersecurity writer and researcher at Atlas VPN William Sword shares his thoughts on the current cybersecurity landscape:



Beyond co-operating within countries, Global Cybersecurity Index leaders could help less developed countries address cybersecurity challenges. For example, creating a strategy or sharing good cyber practices can help reach more balanced and robust security against cyber threats.



Lack of cybersecurity training



One of the reasons why cyberattacks continue to increase is a lack of cybersecurity education and training.



Just 46% of countries provided specific cybersecurity training for the public sector and government officials. Employees in these fields usually work with a lot of sensitive or confidential information, which is why education on cybersecurity is essential.



Meanwhile, 41% of countries provided cybersecurity training to small and medium enterprises or private companies. Businesses often become targets for hackers as the latter can easily profit off of stolen data or ransomware attacks.



Law enforcement agents received educational cybersecurity programs in 37% of countries.
