Can a custom gatelet protect data for application proprietary encrypted messaging apps or Apps that use certificate pining such as Viber, Telegram or Signal?


A custom gatelet is unable to provide protection when the data cannot be decrypted by the cloud security gateway. The encryption happens before WSS\CASB has the opportunity to inspect the data or the data is not allow to be decrypted.

These apps would either need to be bypassed and sent directly to the vendor (No protection) or, blocked at the firewall or proxy.
