SMS encryption with remote erasure function

Celltrust : 24 November, 2008  (New Product)
Protection of personal information on mobile phones now available with CellTrust Secure SMS for messaging encryption and the ability to remotely wipe all messages from lost or stolen devices
With innovations in security software such as CellTrust's Secure SMS, users are now able to send messages securely, as all SMS messages including the destination phone numbers are fully encrypted and have the capabilities of remote wipe - clearing traces of incoming and outgoing cell phone messages should the device be lost or stolen.

"Access to phone records is the first step in trying to find out additional information about someone's private life. By acquiring phone numbers they can start digging into these additional phone records and all text messages that was sent between people so to begin to piece something together," said Sean Moshir, CEO and Founder of CellTrust. "Employees of carriers, aggregators and other infrastructure providers have access to text messages and since text messages are in clear text it makes it very easy for employees to read them as well as finding out who it was sent to. "

Traditionally, those who assume the position of commander-in-chief surrender email and mobile messaging as a common use of communication as all messages can be traced and could potentially become public record (in the case of a lawsuit) or possibly subject to tampering. However, there is a way for him to stay connected to family and friends - at least as far as text messaging is concerned. In addition to the message content being encrypted to the AES standards, CellTrust's Secure SMS encrypts all phone numbers, therefore making it impossible for carriers to see where the messages are destined.

With SMS and messaging in general outpacing voice calls in the US, security on the mobile device is becoming a ubiquitous issue. With the evolution of security on mobile devices, CellTrust is extending the existing capabilities of banking, healthcare and government agencies, while remaining compliant with all applicable laws and regulations (HIPAA, FISMA, Sarbanes Oxley, etc.).
