Across the government, finance, media, and enterprise sectors, a consensus has been growing over the past five years: standard communication solutions are simply not secure enough.
With high profile hacking scandals shaking major corporations like Equifax and Yahoo in 2017, 2018 has been a year of reckoning for companies and agencies that want to ensure that confidential internal discussions are not compromised by lax cyber security.
But despite the fact that the only guaranteed way to ensure full end-to-end security is through encryption, many industries have been slow to adopt secure communication tools like encrypted smartphones, in part because they fear that greater protection comes at the cost of ease-of-use.
In fast-paced sectors like finance, not being able to communicate quickly and seamlessly is simply not an option. This has led many companies to forego reliable, airtight PGP encryption out of a concern that it will slow communications down.
If your organization has held off on adopting the latest encryption software out of a misguided sense that it will be a barrier to effective communication, check out this encrypted messaging app from one of the industry’s leading experts. Not only does it provide state-of-the-art encryption protection, it does so without making communication slow or inefficient.
In 2018, ChatMail Secure launched its ChatMail Advanced Messaging and Parsing Protocol (CAMP), a revolutionary new encryption tool that turns modified Android phones into powerful encrypted messaging tools.
With ChatMail, users get a seamless chat-messaging platform that also allows for image and voice messaging. But they also get a device that uses multiple layers of encryption to provide maximum security without reducing functionality.
ChatMail incorporates standard PGP encryption alongside Elliptical Curve Cryptography, always defaulting to the most secure option. And unlike other encryption tools, both types of encryption are integrated into a single interface. No matter what kind of encryption they are using, all a user’s contacts appear on the same list, which shows which encryption is being used through colour coding.
ChatMail also gives users significant control over their device’s encryption features. New electronic keys can be generated easily, and messages can be set to automatically delete anywhere from daily to weekly. Because no sensitive information is stored externally, the only way the information on a phone can be accessed is through the phone itself. Cutting-edge tamper proofing ensures that if an attempt is made to break into the phone, the device will be wiped.
The past year saw the growth of sophisticated hacking techniques like ransomware, man-in-the-middle attacks, and phishing schemes. Cyber security experts are already raising the alarm over the explosion of spyware and malware risks that are set to emerge in 2019.
With no business too big or too small to be a target, it is incumbent on businesses and organizations in all sectors of the economy to adopt convenient, advanced tools like ChatMail Secure to guarantee the security of their own communications, and to protect the information and data of their clients, customers, and stakeholders.
