Growing Partnership Reflects Increasing Need to Integrate Data From Encrypted Mobile Communications Applications into Financial Regulatory Compliance Programs

NEW YORK – May 4, 2021 – Behavox, which uses AI to enable enterprises to organize and refine their data into actionable information that protects and promotes business growth, today announced it has expanded its partnership with TeleMessage to capture and supervise mobile data from a growing list of non-corporate communications applications, such as WhatsApp, WeChat, and now, Signal and Telegram. 

Earlier this year, Behavox established an integration partnership with TeleMessage, a provider of mobile communication capture and archiving technology for compliance with financial regulations. Behavox and TeleMessage’s technology teams have worked across multiple R&D areas to introduce effective and reliable infrastructure developments to new customers.

As part of this effort, Behavox is mitigating friction between regulatory compliance policies and the proliferation of devices and non-corporate applications that are often used for non-compliant, illegal conduct like collusion, market abuse, and insider dealing. The partnership helps Behavox enable firms to cover communications applications like WhatsApp, WeChat, Signal, and Telegram instead of denying access to employees who inevitably find ways to secretly use them anyway.

“Behavox is enabling customers to ingest WhatsApp and WeChat messages, attachments, and voice calls as part of their regulatory compliance programs,” said Allen Clark, vice president of partnerships for Behavox. “New customers like Schonfeld have selected Behavox and TeleMessage for the ability to improve the overall scope and effectiveness of their compliance programs and identify non-compliant activity quickly and accurately to protect their reputation and culture.”

“As hybrid workforces are now the norm, employees are taking business conversations away from traditional secure communications channels and onto platforms like WhatsApp and WeChat, putting their financial compliance programs and larger organizations at risk,” said Gil Shapira, VP of Business Development, TeleMessage. “We look forward to broadening our existing relationship with Behavox to provide customers with reliable and secure compliance offerings between TeleMessage and Behavox’s risk and compliance platform that generate valuable data insights, enabling customers to effectively fulfill their regulatory electronic communications and voice supervision requirements.”

This development helps address compliance risks for multinational corporations. Compliance risks and misconduct occur in different regions in different languages. Behavox’s multilingual enterprise solution covers the industry’s largest number of misconduct scenarios in several languages. Behavox enables clients to analyze data from dozens of applications and more than 150 data types from internal communications, such as voice, email, text, social media, chat and collaboration on a variety of corporate and non-corporate applications including Microsoft Teams, Twitter, WeChat, WhatsApp, and Zoom
