Fairfax, VA and Bethesda, MD– January 8, 2020 – WidePoint Corporation (NYSE American: WYY), the leading provider of Trusted Mobility Management (TM2) specializing in Telecommunications Lifecycle Management, Identity Management and Digital Billing & Analytics solutions and KoolSpan, the provider of TrustCall, have entered into a partnership through which WidePoint delivers KoolSpan’s cross-platform, end-to-end communication solution to WidePoint customers so that they can make phone calls and send text messages securely.
WidePoint has partnered with KoolSpan to resell TrustCall, the leading secure mobile communications platform to governments and enterprises globally that secures phone calls and messages with end-to-end encryption. TrustCall is an enterprise-grade solution that delivers high performance and HD quality encrypted audio and can be flexibly deployed via the cloud, on premise, or in hybrid form.
“KoolSpan’s TrustCall ensures that devices use end-to-end encryption for all communication paths, which is crucial to improving the security of global telecommunications networks,” said Jin Kang, WidePoint President and Chief Executive Officer. “By partnering with KoolSpan, we have immediately added a secure communication tool that is directly complementary to our product suite and a critical need for our federal and enterprise clients. We expect this partnership to give us an additional leg up over our competition as we continue to focus on expanding our presence as a leading provider of trusted mobility management services.”

“Global telecommunications networks are inherently insecure as has been well documented by cyber security experts in the U.S. Government and across the private sector. The threats, from surveillance of communications to theft of IP to corporate espionage, are posed by systemic vulnerabilities in the global telecommunications infrastructure that readily enable interception and monitoring of mobile communications, both voice and data,” said Elad Yoran, KoolSpan Executive Chairman. “The only viable solution to this problem is to use end-to-end (E2E) encryption for all communications. KoolSpan is excited to partner with WidePoint to provide TrustCall.“
