The product, known as SMS SecureTrans, is based on Bond WirelessÂ patented SMS authentication and verification (SAV) technology. The SAV enables cost effective validation process without the need for SIM Toolkit development and the issuing of application specific toolkits. The technology also works across multiple mobile technology platforms (GSM, GPRS, EDGE, 3G) and can also be enhanced to work with multimedia message service (MMS).
Dr. Clarence Tan, CEO & Chairman of Bond Wireless, explains that the SecureTrans technology ensures that only the intended recipient will read the message, permits sensitive information be sent via SMS, and solves the problems of non-repudiation by providing a virtual receipt in the mobile phone via SMS. This technology is currently being used by Australian hospitals to notify communicable disease patients of their medical test results privately and securely, while providing the doctors with proof of receipt.
According to Dr Tan, ÂBond WirelessÂ criteria for a partner was a company that has a regional reach and a leader in the mobile messaging arena. AKN Messaging Technologies fits that profile of a partner and their existing customer base in the financial sector ensures that our technology will get the right exposure and market penetrationÂ.
ÂWe are delighted to partner with Bond Wireless as they themselves are leaders in this technology. Being the winner of APICTA International Award 2002, Microsoft Certified Partner, and SUNÂs iForce Partner, the SecureTrans technology will definitely compliment our existing portfolio of solutions for the financial sectorÂ said Lester N. Francis, General Manager of AKNMTECH.
