Cellcrypt, a provider of encrypted voice calling solutions for mobile phones, today announced that it has launched Cellcrypt Mobile™ for iPhone®, a version of its encrypted voice calling application that runs on Apple® devices running iOS and operates over Wi-Fi™, GSM, CDMA and satellite networks. Today’s announcement follows the release of the Android version which the company released back on June 14th.
Cellcrypt Mobile provides voice call encryption for commercially available off-the-shelf cell phones using government-certified security through an easy-to-use downloadable application that makes highly secure calling as easy as making a normal phone call. Cellcrypt’s software-only solution uses the IP data channel of cellular (2G, 3G, and 4G), Wi-Fi and satellite networks and can be deployed to personnel anywhere in the world in less than 10 minutes.
Cellcrypt says its solution is in use by governments and corporations globally. It uses cryptography certified to U.S. government National Institute of Standards and Technology FIPS 140-2 security standard and has been awarded the CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) from the U.K. government’s information assurance authority.
Cellcrypt delivers an easy to use countermeasure against cyber crime by preventing voice interception on cell phones used by government and corporate personnel. With no special equipment, Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone delivers high strength security at the same time as a voice call experience comparable to a normal mobile phone, the company says.
Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone is available immediately from the App Store and requires Cellcrypt’s Encrypted Voice Service™ from Cellcrypt. It supports iOS 4 on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 and is interoperable with Cellcrypt running on other devices such as Nokia®, Android™ and BlackBerry® smartphones.
In October, AT&T launched AT&T Encrypted Mobile Voice, a carrier-provided two factor encryption service, which provides high-level security features for calls on the AT&T wireless network. For those looking for a secure voice conferencing solution, Cellcrypt provides conference calling service that provides both device authentication and voice call encryption to participants using popular mobile devices including BlackBerry and Nokia. Cellcrypt also provides Cellcrypt Enterprise Gateway, enabling business users secure calls to office landlines from mobile phones. The enterprise solution is targeted to executives traveling to hostile countries where phone interception is prevalent.
