As mobile security and privacy remains a top priority, Tigerspike is proud to announce the release of Kaicomm, a method of converting mobile devices into secure communication tools, using Tigerspike's leading encryption technology, Karacell.

"Until now voice latency has been a real barrier to the uptake of strongly encrypted voice services. The speed of Karacell breaks down that barrier and so the experience has caught up with the technology." Luke Janssen, Group CEO of Tigerspike

Unsecured information travelling wirelessly is a growing concern for organisations. Tigerspike has invested in mobile security and developed Kaicomm, a MicroSD card that can be installed in off-the-shelf devices harnessing Tigerspike's secure and quantum computer resistant encryption technology, Karacell.

Kaicomm ensures there is no reliance on the phone manufacturer for security, since all encryption happens on the MicroSD card. The processor on the chip is totally inaccessible from the phones operating system, providing a completely trusted environment and removing any perceived security concerns for OS's such as Android or BlackBerry. Combining this with Karacell’s ability to enable real-time encrypted voice calls ensures Kaicomm is the first state of the art, secure, enterprise-grade communications system with consumer-grade usability.

Luke Janssen, Group CEO of Tigerspike states, "Until now voice latency has been a real barrier to the uptake of strongly encrypted voice services. The speed of Karacell breaks down that barrier and so the experience has caught up with the technology, which is what Tigerspike is great at: marrying technology with user experiences.”

The value in Kaicommhas already been realised as Tigerspike continues discussions with large global security and government organisations on implementing Kaicommto secure high-value communications with Karacell.

Following feedback from the cryptographic community, after Karacell's launch in 2012, Tigerspike made further enhancements and efficiencies to the algorithm. Dr Stuart Christmas states that “We are confident that Karacell cannot be hacked and would like to challenge the cryptographic community that there is no other technology with the speed and power of Karacell. We will pay USD$10,000 to anyone who can crack Karacell." Contest rules and other information can be found at http://www.karacell.info.

As quantum computing continues to be a key topic for debate, with companies such as D-Wave producing ever more advanced special-purpose quantum computers, it is a threat that can no longer be ignored, and Kaicomm with Karacell are ready to take on the challenge.
