SMS AV (SMS Authenticate and Verify ) a unique technology solution created by Bond Wireless, a Queensland technology company, has been granted a patent in China, the USA and Australia. The granting of the patent further reinforces the importance of the SMS AV technology to organisations wanting non-repudiated proof of the parties engaging in a variety of interactions via mobile technology.
Mobile interaction with Health, Education and Commercial applications is fast becoming a normal communications path between organisations and their patients, customers or clients. One of the key issues facing these organisations has been the inability of the application to adequately validate that the right person has control of the mobile device before a personal communication can occur. SMS AV solves this problem by managing the authentication and verification process with the mobile user in a simple and cost effective manner.
Bond Wireless currently uses this technology in a number of key application environments, including the health and education sectors. In the health sector Bond Wireless uses SMS AV to authenticate the patients of Sexual Health Clinics to validate that the right person has access to the handset before communicating information relating to patient tests and treatments. Students receiving the university entrance scores are required to validate their identity using the SMS AV technology before their entrance score is delivered to their handset.
The patented SMS AV technology developed by Bond Wireless uses SMS and other associated technologies like text2speech, to solve two problems previously restricting the greater use of mobiles as a business to consumer communications media. SMS AV solves the question (1) Has the correct person received the information and (2) Has the correct person read the information.
SMS Authenticate and Verify (SMS AV) technology is designed for enterprise applications providing additional business process security when using mobile communications without expensive modifications to SIM cards, mobile networks, customized phones or the creation of phone based applications. The business processes supported by SMS AV ensure the identity of the message recipient before any sensitive data is delivered. In addition to ensuring only the intended recipient reads the message, the sender is also provided with a proof of receipt.
In addition to the verification process SMS AV also enables the content of the message to be managed in an encrypted fashion to further enhance the security of the communications process.
The SMS AV technology suite has significant potential for improving the quality of the communication between banks and their account holders, stock brokers and their clients, doctors and patients and businesses and their mobile customers. SMS AV is available from Bond Wireless as either as an ASP service or as a standalone application managed by the organisation.
