San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
Vysk Communications (Vysk), a pioneer in the private secure communications industry, has been honored with a 2015 CES Innovation Award for the EP1 Privacy Charging Case, the company’s third win in two months and second Innovation Award this year. The Vysk EP1 case doubles an iPhone®'s battery life, but unlike standard battery charging cases, delivers additional functionality that customers need in the digital age, such as cutting-edge privacy protections.
Smartphones can be hacked just like a computer. Open one wrong email, click one wrong link, respond to one wrong text, connect to one wrong hotspot, or download one wrong app, and malicious third-parties can take control of a device to access a phone’s cameras, texts, and videos without the user's knowledge or consent. Vysk cases have been designed to not only be practical by solving the problem of a dead phone, but also to empower consumers by offering protection and privacy for smartphones.
The EP1 works with the Vysk Privacy apps to protect the details of a user's life from prying eyes of hackers. A patented camera shutter is used to prevent hackers from taking control of an iPhone’s cameras and the Vysk Private Gallery app and Vysk Private Text app are used to encrypt and protect photos, videos and text messages. A rechargeable 2,200 mAh lithium-ion battery provides up to 120% more battery power.
“Our mission is to redefine and restore privacy in the digital age, and are honored to have received these two awards from CES,” said Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. “We want to make privacy easy. By doing what we’re doing, you don’t have to change your phone, your service, or your habits. When you’re ready to go private, you flip a switch.”
In addition to privacy features, the EP1 case features a sleek, attractive design in four luxe colors including red, gold, blue and black.
