The 3 riskiest apps found in the enterprise

WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Messenger are the two riskiest apps found on both iOS and Android, according to Appthority’s Enterprise Mobile Security Pulse Report for Q2 2018. Both WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Messenger were rated 7 out of 10 for their data leakage range, which means the “apps access and/or send enterprise related or identifiable information,” according to a press release.

The third most risky app in iOS was Waze, while that spot in Android belonged to Telegram, according to the research. To compile its ratings, Appthority analyzed millions of ongoing mobile security scans that it performs for its enterprise customers, the release said.
