KoolSpan is Proud to be Named a 2019 TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor
KoolSpan is proud to join a group of the world’s leading cyber security technology companies, selected by Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber. KoolSpan’s mission is to secure phone calls and text messages for everyone the world over, on standard smartphones. We believe making a secure call or sending a secure text should be as easy as making a regular phone call.
The 2019 TAG Cyber Security Annual is designed to provide direct advisory guidance – at no cost – to the enterprise cyber security professional. Their work is created to help cyber defenders more effectively deal with the technical challenges of our industry.
The TAG Cyber Security annual identifies fifty different aspects of enterprise cyber security management that are essential to any modern information risk reduction program, which they define as cyber security controls. One critical, often overlooked control is ‘voice security.’ Over the past few years, voice communications have become increasingly mobile-based, and thereby increasingly vulnerable to a range of new cyber threats including SS7 and DIAMETER exploits, and IMSI catchers, among others. Calls can easily be intercepted from anywhere in the world, regardless of where the call is made or received. The encouraging news is, mobile calls can be encrypted end-to-end, entirely bypassing the threat and ensuring conversations can never be intercepted.
“Today, sometimes the best place to look for weakness is in our daily activities – making calls and sending text messages,” said Amoroso. “By enabling end-to-end communication security on mobile devices for everyone from consumers to government, you can fine tune a product that really allows everyone to use their mobile devices safely allowing customers to protect their intellectual property and vital information amongst others.”
Each year, TAG Cyber publishes it three-volume report to the community for download.
