Why Don't More Companies Use Encrypted Smartphones?




At a time when cyber attacks and hacking scandals are coming thick and fast, a shocking ninety percent of small businesses still aren’t using basic cyber security protections to keep their communications and data secure, according to USA Today.

While adequate cyber security protection involves a multi-pronged and holistic approach, the first step any company worried about the risks of cyber attack should take is to protect communications using high-powered encryption tools.

One of the main reasons why your company needs to use encrypted messaging is simply because email and chat logs are one of the key places where hackers gain access to passwords and other sensitive information they can then use to cause significant financial damage. So why is it so rare for companies to provide end-to-end protection for their communications?

Security or Functionality?

The question of why more companies do not avail themselves of the only tech solution that is one hundred percent guaranteed to provide secure end-to-end communications can be explained in part by reference to the fact that until recently, encrypted smartphones were an often challenging tool to adopt.

Up until last year, in order for an encrypted smartphone to guarantee complete security, it needed to have its functionality reduced to the sending and receiving of emails. Even tools like chat weren’t available with most encryption protocols.

At a time when most consumers expect their personal devices to function as pocket computers that provide them access to every conceivable function, the notion of using a smartphone that can only send and receive email has led many organizations to turn to communication tools that are less secure but which offer a wider range of functionality.

A New Solution

All that changed in 2018 with the arrival of ChatMail’ Secure’s ChatMail Advanced Messaging and Parsing Protocol (CAMP). With ChatMail encrypted smartphones, users had access to a truly innovative communication tool.

The CAMP protocol is the first to include two separate kinds of encryption (one of which is based on the commonly-used open source PGP encryption, and the other on Curve25519) and automatically distinguish between internal and external users, both of which are operated using the same interface. Instead of manually switching between different encryption tools, users have an integrated messaging platform that colour-codes contacts based on the level of encryption being used.

Because the CAMP protocol doesn’t rely on external servers, no information is stored outside the phone itself. And because users can set tamper proofing duress passwords, any attempt to break into the phone manually should it be lost or stolen will result in immediate wiping of the device. 


Furthermore, ChatMail offers premium security without drastically reducing functionality. Users can send chat messages, image messages, and voice messages, and it is even possible to create group chats and anonymous group chats. For the first time, companies can adopt encrypted communication solutions for their entire staff that are easy to use and understand, even without specialized IT knowledge.

Cyber security has long since gone from being an optional choice. Cyber attacks affect companies of all sizes, and research has shown that they can have absolutely devastating attacks on small businesses that have significantly less capacity to absurd the significant financial damage that usually comes with a cyber attack than large corporations do. 

If you still haven’t adopted the latest encryption tools, make sure you protect yourself in 2019 by adopting encrypted smartphones from ChatMail Secure.
