KoolSpan and GO-Trust Announce a Strategic Partnership and the General Availability of TrustCall microSD
TrustCall Delivers Most Secure, Flexible and High Quality Mobile Communications Solution, now with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL5+ Secure Element
Bethesda, Md. and Tustin, CA (September 20, 2017) — KoolSpan, Inc., the leading provider of interoperable secure call and messaging solutions for mobile devices and GO-Trust, a global leader in hardware based encryption solutions, today announced their strategic global partnership, and the General Availability of TrustCall microSD.
TrustCall microSD enables compatibility between KoolSpan’s TrustCall and GO-Trust’s secure microSD*; providing secure mobile communications using a microSD-based FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL5+ validated secure element for authentication and encryption.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the governing body for carriers, recently stated that, “Telecommunications service providers should educate consumers on applications providing end-to-end encryption services for voice calls.” As professionals and organizations confront proliferating surveillance and espionage threats around the globe, TrustCall’s flexibility and interoperability allows buyers quickly and easily to implement essential encryption safeguards for mobile devices, according to their specific needs and requirements.
TrustCall is the only secure communications solution that seamlessly operates across device types, networks and operating systems; leveraging a device’s native secure elements and, now, common criteria validated independent hardware.
”We are excited to partner with KoolSpan on an important solution, enabling secure call and messaging with a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL5+ validated secure element,” said Darren Lee, CEO of GO-Trust. “The timing is perfect, as the global market is concerned about interception of calls and messaging, KoolSpan offers solutions for businesses and government organizations to secure their communications end-to-end.”
TrustCall microSD is supported across all of the TrustCall solutions:
- TrustCall Global Service – a hosted and managed cloud-based subscription service
- TrustCall On-Prem – a deployment hosted on-premise or in a private cloud that provides API-based integration with business systems and applications
- TrustCall Hybrid – custom, flexible infrastructure and architecture, combining elements of TrustCall Global Service and TrustCall On-Prem
TrustCall microSD is interoperable with implementations of TrustCall that do not include a microSD. This flexibility and interoperability enables organizations to choose the optimal solution for different users across departments, functional areas, roles and teams.
“The proliferation of surveillance threats to sensitive mobile communications is driving remarkable demand for encrypted calls and text messaging in government and commercial organizations around the world,” said KoolSpan CEO, Nigel Jones. “TrustCall delivers not only the highest quality audio, but also the greatest flexibility, and now with our partnership with GO-Trust, we are delivering Common Criteria hardware that some customers require.”
