The EU Stance on Messaging Apps Matters - But Why?22 MAR 2020 | Nilesh Patel

These applications were designed for consumers with an “ease of use” versus a “security-first” philosophy. Fundamentally, the apps do not meet public or private, government or commercial requirements for two essential reasons:
Today, government and global enterprises need to ensure public and business continuity by providing their users with secure mobile workspaces. These platforms, and their associated apps, not only offer security against today’s threat but should be fundamentally designed with a progressive set of security algorithms and protocols that keep the users secure against the future, post-quantum attacks. This is where consumer messaging apps consistently fail.
They must support auditing and management capabilities unique to organisational needs that include auditing, key management, and membership management to address different levels of access privileges and controls. They need to not only be able to manage and protect the users from outsider attacks but must be designed to be able to audit and prevent malicious intent of compromised users, identify breaches and recover quickly.
