Millennials can’t seem to do anything without messenger apps. More than 90% of this under-30 crowd use WhatsApp and the like, but CIOs and network administrators have to face a number of complex questions. How to meet user requirements? How to ensure the integrity and security of IT infrastructures? Compromises in security for the benefit of the user experience are not allowed. Because IT is often linked to many sensitive areas. And cyber-attacks on corporate networks are becoming increasingly savvy.
With SIMSme Business, Deutsche Post has developed a messenger app that is user-friendly and at the same time delivers the highest levels of data protection, security, and regulatory compliance. This offer fills a gap in the market, as many messenger apps offered for personal use do not handle confidential information securely. WhatsApp even transfers address data to its parent company Facebook in the USA. This is a clear violation of the EU’s GDPR unless all contacts explicitly agree to this transfer. This is hardly practical. SIMSme Business, on the other hand, meets the high requirements of the EU regulation. In this way, companies can avoid fines amounting to millions of euros that are threatened in cases of infringements.
Hardware, software, and organizational measures are designed for a high level of data protection and security.
