KoolSpan Partners with EMS to Increase Global Availability of Encrypted Secure Voice and Messaging Solutions

KoolSpan and EMS partner to deliver flexible, enterprise-grade secure mobile communications technology to 65 countries worldwide

Bethesda, Md. (May 17, 2016) — KoolSpan, Inc., a leading provider of encrypted secure voice and messaging solutions for mobile phones, today announced a partnership with EMS, a leading provider of mobility solutions and services in the Middle East, Africa, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Eastern Europe and Asia. This partnership aims to increase worldwide availability of KoolSpan’s mobile encryption solutions for carriers, enterprises, and government organizations, in order to address growing demand for secure communications technology. Enterprise and government customers in the EMS footprint will now be able to enjoy the benefits of KoolSpan’s centralized technology management and administration while maintaining robust end-to-end encrypted mobile communications.

This partnership will enable more organizations to integrate encrypted communications across its employees, business partners and supply chains and ensure the protection of sensitive calls and messages from global surveillance threats. Attacks on mobile communications – including cellphone calls and text messages – by foreign governments, corporate competitors, hacktivists and cyber criminals, are not only amongst the fastest growing cyber threats to both government and commercial organizations, but also are particularly hard to detect.

EMS’s mobility solutions blend cutting-edge technology with business acumen, and meet the most challenging requirements of today’s quickly evolving mobile security and privacy landscape to address the concerns of any modern-day entity. KoolSpan and EMS’s partnership focuses on making highly secure and, easy-to-use encryption technology more accessible for organizations around the world.

“KoolSpan is thrilled to enter into this strategic partnership with EMS,” said Nigel Jones, CEO of KoolSpan. “Combining EMS’s market leadership, extensive international reach and deep mobility expertise with KoolSpan’s innovative end-to-end secure mobile calling and text messaging technology will provide our partners and customers in the EMS footprint with best-in-class solutions to combat the proliferation of surveillance threats to sensitive mobile communications worldwide.”

Offering a range of flexible mobile communications security options, EMS designs and delivers technology-enabled business tools with high-quality customer support to a range of organizations in various industries such as financial services, government organizations, the energy sectors and health care. EMS’s broad technology and expert services portfolio will help deliver KoolSpan’s secure messaging capabilities to 65 countries, including locations in the Middle East and Africa, a region where there is significant demand for secure voice communications and messaging.

“In the regions that we service, we have seen firsthand growth in demand for end-to-end mobile encryption technology,” said Zuilfiqar Khan, CEO of EMS. “This partnership with KoolSpan, a global leader in the secure communications field, will provide our customers with a broader range of encrypted voice communications and messaging options, empowering emerging markets with innovative services and software solutions to enhance mobility, privacy and security in the wireless industry.”

KoolSpan’ s newest offerings, TrustCall DIRECT Enterprise Version 4.0 and TrustCall DIRECT Service Provider Version 4.5, have been specifically designed for enterprises. These solutions put the world-class secure communications capability of KoolSpan’s TrustCall technology in the hands of government and commercial organizations, such as those served by EMS. These are the first enterprise-grade secure mobile communications solutions designed in order to enable seamless integration with organizations’ existing infrastructure and service providers’ core systems, thus providing organizations with easy-to-use encryption solutions that are flexible for  both  ‘on premise’ as well ‘as a service’ options.

TrustCall combines a familiar, easy to use interface with FIPS 140-2 validated and end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption to let users of popular iPhone, Android and BlackBerry smartphones exchange secure calls and text messages anywhere they travel.
