Secure communications [DSEI15, D4]

18 September 2015

Security and military personnel are as likely to use smartphones and tablets as anyone else; and like anyone else would prefer for their communications to be secure.

US-based KoolSpan (Stand N7-185) has just entered into a reseller agreement with Samsung Electronics America to add secure voice and messaging features to Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

As of this week, KoolSpan’s secure voice and messaging solutions will be offered as part of a bundled mobility and IT product and service offering from Samsung Business Services to its mobile enterprise customers. The deal includes KoolSpan’s TrustCall for encrypted wireless calling, TrustText for encrypted mobile messaging, and TrustBridge for secure calls between mobiles and desk phones.

‘‘Security is only as ‘good’ as it is ‘easy to use’, and this truism is at the heart of what KoolSpan and Samsung are providing our customers,’’ said Nigel Jones, KoolSpan CEO.

KoolSpan’s software and hardware solutions and support include Android, iPhone and BlackBerry. Given its ability to address the growing threat of loss or theft of intellectual property, vital information and proprietary assets, the company’s customer base of government organisations and enterprises spans more than 60 countries worldwide.
