ProtectedSMS enables BlackBerry and Android users to exchange secure, encrypted text messages with individuals who have installed the software.
Unlike other secure texting solutions that require a subscription through a third-party security gateway, ProtectedSMS is a handset-to-handset solution that keeps privacy in the control of users and works across all networks and carriers. It installs quickly and is as easy to use as sending a text message.
Developed for law enforcement, government and corporate professionals who require secure and convenient message protection, ProtectedSMS utilizes AES 256 FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption, and is available via individual and enterprise licenses.
Protected Mobility’s key management and encryption process enables easy transfer of existing client applications to a secure mobile platform. An iPhone version of ProtectedSMS will be available later in Q2 2011 along with tablet and iPad versions.
Individual licenses are $49.95 per user, with a free 14-day download available here.
