KoolSpan Inc., developer of the TrustChip® family of plug-in mobile security solutions, was recently featured in top trade publication for business and technology, SC Magazine. SC Magazine reviewed KoolSpan’s TrustCall, a discreet, affordable, easy-to-install secure voice solution in their July 2012 issue.
“Overall, we found this to be a strong implementation of mobile phone encryption. Military-grade voice encryption has been around for a long time, but this is the best implementation of commercial-grade voice encryption we have seen to date,” said Peter Stephenson, technology editor for SC Lab. “There is no perceptible distortion of the audio, the signal is as clear and strong as it would be without TrustCall, and latencies are negligible once the connection is made and the call is established.”
TrustCall leverages Koolspan’s TrustChip, a removable micro SD card with a crypto co-processor. With the TrustChip in place, the TrustCall application integrates with the smartphone’s address book and allows users to easily place mutually authenticated and fully encrypted calls. Without user action, the application automatically accesses the TrustChip’s security services and provides a security status when calling another secure smartphone. A compliment to the smartphone’s normal operation, the application is idle when calls are placed to non-secure phones.
