Adeya publishes White Paper Cloud Act and Data Security

Adeya, one of TNF’s portfolio investments, today published a white paper entitled “The CLOUD: Backdoor to National Secrets and Other Sensitive Data.”

The White Paper discusses the growth of consumer messaging apps like WhatsApp and Telegram, and how these apps use terms like “end-to-end encryption” and “secret key,” to lend themselves an air of authenticity and security. As the White Paper makes clear, these free messaging apps are anything but secure and use confusing and often easily circumvented end-to-end encryption offerings.  

Moreover, US-based apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are subject to US laws, including the SCA and the recent CLOUD Act. This is important as the US lacks a comprehensive data privacy regime and it is uncertain what protections, if any, apply to non-US residents. 

The paper goes on to explain Adeya’s differentiated model and uniquely secure messaging platform.  For more information, please read the paper here.
