Fulfils demand for secure voice solutions from Middle East & Africa regions
London, 16th July 2009: Cellcrypt (www.cellcrypt.com), the leading provider of secure mobile voice calling, today announced that it has opened a new office to support the increasing demand it is seeing for its secure voice solutions from the Middle East and Africa regions. The new office in Dubai follows the recent opening of new US offices, as well as the launch of new voice encryption products.
Cellcrypt provides end-to-end solutions for encrypted voice calling between standard smartphones to prevent private conversations within corporations or governments from being compromised, without the need for specialised devices. In addition to mobile-to-mobile, Cellcrypt also supports secure mobile-to-landline calls.
Unlike traditional solutions based on older Circuit Switched Data technology, Cellcrypt uses the latest internet technology to provide unmatched voice call quality, international calling capability, high reliability across all major wireless networks including 2G (GPRS/EDGE), 3G (HSPA, CDMA/EV-DO) and Wi-Fi networks. Cellcrypt technology provides real-time encryption to levels specified by the US government and is currently undergoing certification to the FIPS 140-2 standard approved by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
“The launch of the Dubai office allows us to better service our existing customers and partners in Middle East and Africa as well as more rapidly address demand from new customers,” said Simon Bransfield-Garth, CEO at Cellcrypt. “Both regions have a growing requirement for secure mobile voice solutions and our new office in Dubai will support the Cellcrypt’s local partners in the region, as well as provide additional support for our global customer base.”
Cellcrypt recently announced that it had completed a new funding round, which included Notion Capital, the firm set up by the founders and senior executives from successful Internet security company MessageLabs, which was sold to Symantec in 2008 for $695M. Stephen Chandler, former CFO of MessageLabs has joined the Cellcrypt Board.
