Beep Pakistan is an application that will be used by employees of all 41 federal departments and ministries for international communications as designated by the Ministry of Information Technology.
Beep Pakistan will be an internal communications network for government employees to be launched next week, according to an announcement from the Federal Ministry of IT and Telecom. The platform would be available to all federal government departments and employees.
The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications (MoITT) reports that the Beep Pakistan application has been completed and is currently being tested at federal government agencies. In addition, it has been stated that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Federal Minister of Information Technology and Telecommunications Amin ul Haque will be in charge of the event.
Developed by the National Information Technology Board (NITB), Beep Pakistan had previously been tested on a small scale and found to be free of flaws. As a result, the government plans to move to large-scale testing and pre-launch the application for ministries under the jurisdiction of the federal government.
Officials from the Ministry of IT and Telecom have stated that starting next week, all personnel working for the 41 government departments and ministries will be required to use the Beep Pakistan application as their primary method of international communication.
The application’s advanced capabilities, including voice and video calling, file sharing, and online meetings, facilitate effective communication between government agencies and their staff.
Previously, when government employees used other third-party applications to communicate, they put critical and sensitive data at risk. However, when employees use an internal application, risk is significantly reduced, government data is kept secure, and efficiency is increased.
The Beep Pakistan application is approved by the National Telecom and Information Security Board, which means that it is protected against any outside interference or cyber-attacks.
