The main issue with using WhatsApp for business

  • Organisations have zero control over systems like WhatsApp and therefore have no input or control on who their employees are communicating with. 
  • According to WhatsApp’s own terms of service, using the platform for business or professional objectives is not recommended: “You will not use (or assist others in using) our services in ways that: (f) involve any non-personal use of our serves unless otherwise authorized by us.”
  • Spammers, con artists, and hackers literally crawl all over consumer communication platforms like WhatsApp on a daily basis. Yet companies continue to exchange sensitive internal data on these platforms every day. 
  • On November 16 2022, an actor posted an ad on a well-known hacking community forum, claiming they were selling a 2022 database of 487 million WhatsApp user mobile numbers.

Why use Salt Communications instead

  • Salt Communications is highly differentiated as a secure communications provider in that Salt verifies who their customers are and why they need secure comms. Salt Communications only sell to verified organisations who complete our due diligence process. This ensures that all users on our platform know that the system isn’t falling into the hands of bad actors, for illegal activities or as a route to infiltrate your device which has been the case in recent years with global consumer systems.
  • Secure mobile communications demand more than just encryption, but at Salt, we acknowledge that encryption remains a critical component. That’s why we use a blended approach with multiple encryption algorithms for maximum security. We follow industry best practices by using Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.3 at the transport layer. And with 2048-bit RSA keys, we strike the perfect balance between security and performance, ensuring the highest level of protection for all mobile devices.
  • Salt provides a completely closed system, where users require entry provided by their organisation. Organisations have total control over internal communication and user access through “circles” based on seniority, department, or legal matter.  

With additional security measures in place under the surface Salt Communications is the best tool for confidential business communications:
