Today, mobile phones are one of the most personal and important communication tools after the Internet. Mobile commerce is our next big thing in the pipeline. By integrating XMS technology in the mobile transaction platform, enterprises especially financial institutions can be reassured that sensitive information sent via SMS will be totally secure.
Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur (PRWEB) June 17, 2006
Celcom (Malaysia) Berhad and NSS MSC Sdn Bhd today launched a revolutionary product called “SecretSMS.” SecretSMS is a simple software that encrypts SMS messages thereby offering security and privacy.
Starting tomorrow over 2 million Celcom subscribers with smart phones will be able to enjoy a whole new SMS experience, especially those seeking to keep their text life private.
SecretSMS is derived from a backbone technology called XMS (Xecure Message Service) that was developed by NSS. NSS is proud to partner with Celcom to introduce the SecretSMS to the market. Research statistics reveal that this product will appeal to the youth population who use messaging as their primary means of communications.
Text messages that are stored in the phones are readily accessible. Anyone can have access to your phone if it is left unattended. Some personal or sensitive messages might even get read by the wrong person without prior permission, which could eventually lead to unnecessary misunderstandings or even mishaps.
SecretSMS transmits and stores sensitive messages that are accessible with a password known only to the mobile owners. SecretSMS is powered by 128-bit encryption that encrypts incoming and outgoing SMSes in the transmission process. To read the encrypted messages, users have to key in the valid password. Hence, mobile users have complete control over their privacy in the SMS communications.
“We are confident that we will be able to achieve a subscriber base of 1 million SecretSMS users in the next 1 year,” said Jagdeep Kairon, chief executive officer of NSS.
Corporate enterprises such as financial institutions and governments will also benefit from the XMS technology; where they will be able to share proprietary business information in a secure and trusted environment.
“Today, mobile phones are one of the most personal and important communication tools after the Internet. Mobile commerce is our next big thing in the pipeline. By integrating XMS technology in the mobile transaction platform, enterprises especially financial institutions can be reassured that sensitive information sent via SMS will be totally secure.” added Kairon with confidence.
XMS technology is set to penetrate the global market particularly in the US, UK, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka where NSS is already in talks with the local mobile operators and financial institutions.
