Adeya Launches New Data Encryption Solution for BlackBerry Smartphones
Adeya Launches Encrypted Data Solution for BlackBerry
Adeya, the Geneva-based encryption company, announced today the launch of its new data encryption solution for BlackBerry® smartphones, adding a first secure data channel to its existing voice encryption. The new end-to-end Adeya encryption solution guarantees secured transmission of data, voice and messaging simultaneously over wireless public networks.
“Adeya’s encryption solution for BlackBerry® provides an additional layer of security ensuring voice and data privacy,” said Leo Bolchanine, founder and CTO. “We have implemented the highest encryption standards to meet today’s business needs.”
All Adeya software-based solutions, developed primarily for governments and global corporations, provide effective secured communications, are user friendly and easy to install. Adeya solutions can be managed remotely, allowing data to be retrieved and reinstalled quickly whenever a mobile handset is lost or stolen.
A few features available from Adeya:
- AES 256 encryption (standard encryption technology)
- Transmission over cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks
- Compartmentalization of private and professional e-mail and contacts
“Although telecommunications providers put a lot of effort and resources into ensuring data security within their networks, they simply can’t apply the same level of security when roaming,“ said Bertrand Kolb, CEO and co-founder of the company. “And they certainly can’t prevent rogue employees and unlawful interceptions within networks. The security of mobile networks is no longer absolute.”
Today, intercepting mobile communications has become straightforward and inexpensive, due to easily accessible interception software. A computer user can break into any mobile communication, using equipment costing about a thousand dollars.
As a Swiss-based company, Adeya can provide several distinctive advantages that help ensure voice and data security. The Swiss Constitution specifically establishes the right to privacy: authorities and government agencies do not require privileged access to encrypted data; there are no restrictions on the level of encryption delivered. In addition, Swiss telecom providers are required by law to preserve the confidentiality of user information.
Today governments and companies increasingly use smartphones as an extension of their offices. This necessitates increased security over cellular networks.
Adeya will demonstrate its new Blackberry solution at ITU World in October 2011. The company will be ready for large-scale deployment for iPhone, Android and Windows mobile in the fourth quarter.
Adeya is an independent Swiss corporation safeguarding business, banking and government communications. The company protects mobile communications — email, voice and data. Adeya, based near Geneva, combines software experts, telecoms engineers, and ex-law enforcement officers with high-level experience in data and financial security. In business since 2007, its roots are in systems security for Swiss banks and multinational companies.
