KoolSpan to Exhibit at Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEi) 2013
KoolSpan’s TrustChip®, World’s Industry Leading Mobile Device Encryption Engine Enables Safe and Secure Calls and Text Messages
Bethesda, Md. And London, UK, August 27, 2013 – KoolSpan Inc. will exhibit its suite of patented hardware-based mobile security applications at DSEi 2013, the world’s largest fully integrated defense and security exhibition at booth N7-196 from September 10-13 in London.
The hardware anchor for KoolSpan’s entire suite of applications is TrustChip®, a FIPS 140-2 validated technology already powering security offerings from S-1, the security division of Samsung, and AT&T’s voice encryption platform.
“Only a combination of hardware and software-based encryption can deliver the most secure connection,” said Gregg Smith, CEO of KoolSpan. “In fact, the U.S-based National Institutes of Standards and Technology recommends that all federal users implement the type of hardware-based security KoolSpan offers.”
A self-contained, secure, military-grade, microSD encryption engine, TrustChip provides the highest level of security and encryption, enabling businesses, enterprises, financial professionals, governments and individuals to protect against increasing threats to mobile voice communications and data assets.
“More than 1 billion mobile devices in use by businesses and governments are increasingly becoming the next big target for security breaches as we move away from using PCs and toward smartphones and tablets,” said Gregg Smith, CEO of KoolSpan. “Yet, less than 3 percent of smartphones have some form of security installed, leaving them vulnerable to hacking, voice and data eavesdropping and network infiltration. In the wake of recent news about government spying reports, paranoia has entered the mainstream – and consumers, business and government clients now need to consider mobile security and IT a necessity.”
