Cellcrypt launched Mobile for Android, a version of its encrypted voice calling application that runs on Android devices operating over Wi-Fi, GSM and CDMA wireless networks.
Cellcrypt Mobile provides encrypted voice calling for off-the-shelf cell phones using government-certified security in an easy-to-use downloadable application that makes highly secure calling as easy as making or placing a normal phone call.
It is a software-only solution that uses the IP data channel of cellular (2G, 3G, 4G), Wi-Fi and satellite networks and can be deployed to personnel anywhere in the world in as little as 10 minutes.
Cellcrypt Mobile for Android is available immediately on devices supporting Android 2.3 and is interoperable with Cellcrypt running on other devices such as Nokia and BlackBerry smartphones.
“Cellular voice interception is different from other types of data breach,” said Nigel Stanley, Practice Leader, Security at Bloor Research, “if you lose a laptop, USB stick or disk drive it can be fairly obvious that the data has gone missing. But with voice, a successful interception can leave no physical trace so there is little chance of realizing your data has actually been intercepted resulting in disastrous consequences. If you can compromise a cell phone then you are more or less assured that you can collect the most relevant, current and damaging data possible about a user, their business or their private life. By supporting Android devices, Cellcrypt is providing enhanced security for one of the world’s most popular mobile platforms.”
