WeChat is an international multi-purpose messaging, social media and mobile payment app developed by Tencent. Released in 2011, WeChat became one of the world's largest stand-alone mobile apps in 2018, with over 1 billion monthly active users.
Mobile messaging has recently seen massive growth as organizations conduct more business outside of standard email and away from the traditional office environment. Veritas is capable of capturing over 120 content sources into an existing archive or eDiscovery platform, enabling organizations to proactively capture, review and discover all business communications, including WeChat.
Veritas addresses the growth of mobile IM tools in the modern workplace with capture and archive solutions of non-corporate communications platforms such as WeChat. Once captured and archived using Veritas, organizations can retain WeChat communications, supervise them for compliance and search them for eDiscovery and internal information governance.
Veritas helps regulated firms:
- Meet heavily monitored industry regulations like the SEC, FINRA, HIPAA, FDA, GDPR, CCPA and many more.
- Ensure unified identity and policy across all conversations and content.
- Capture all WeChat business chats, messages, multimedia and attachments, natively.
- Enhance eDiscovery, help with litigation preparedness and, consequently, reduce litigation risk.
Regulations such as Dodd-Frank, MiFID II and the FTC’s Truth in Advertising expand communication recording requirements and demand more oversight in customer-facing communications. Privacy rules like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coupled with personal accountability regimes are increasing pressure on compliance teams to know what is in their company communications.
Dealing with the increase in communications over video creates additional compliance, risk and legal concerns around data leakage and misconduct. Make WeChat activities compliant with regulations in your industry with Veritas.
