Verizon and Cellcrypt have come together to offer secure mobile calling capabilities to the US Government, and I am quite sure that most people do not have any complaints with that considering how national security is always of the utmost importance. Verizon we have all heard of before, but how about Cellcrypt? Here is a little background information on them – Cellcrypt is a provider of government-grade encrypted voice-calling software, so it makes perfect sense for them to collaborate with Verizon in this case.
Both companies will jointly market Cellcrypt’s mobile voice-encryption solution to military, intelligence and civilian agencies in a signed agreement, and this particular service intends to assist government information technology departments in managing the expanding use of mobile devices, address the potential risks that are associated with the interception of sensitive voice communications, as well as offer a powerful tool to combat cyberattacks on critical national infrastructure.
Trials are being run at the moment with unnamed government agencies, and this co-branded service should be up and running at full speed when fall rolls around. They have yet to decide on a name for this service, so perhaps the more enterprising of you out there might be able to think of something? [Press Release]
