Cog Systems and Silent Circle Team Up to Bring Trusted Mobile Communications to the World’s Most Secure Device

SYDNEY, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cog Systems and Silent Circle have teamed up to provide in-depth defense through combined encryption technology on D4 Secure architecture for mobile to protect voice and video call data on cellular and Wi-Fi networks from interception and eavesdropping.

“According to CyberSecurity Ventures, it is estimated that cyber crime will result in $6 trillion in damages to the enterprise by 2021,” said Carl Nerup, Chief Marketing Officer, Cog Systems. “Cog Systems and Silent Circle are committed to delivering the most secure solution on the market today for those who need to protect their data and communications while on the go.”

Cog Systems has a long heritage in designing and implementing ‘hardened’ mobile solutions for governments and enterprises around the world and leverages the D4 Secure Platform™ to develop standard Software Development Kits (SDKs) for specific categories of connected devices, including mobile, gateway and IoT. The D4 Secure™ architecture for mobile has been designed to protect organizations and their users with an unparalleled level of data and system security without sacrificing the flexibility to run any application – safely and securely.

The integration of Silent Phone software on the HTC, secured by D4 combines an elegant application interface with state-of-the-art encryption technology that ensures communications remain private, and files are transferred securely. Silent Circle’s secure, custom-built Silent Network protects voice and video call data on cellular and Wi-Fi networks from interception and eavesdropping. Recognized for its high fidelity, unobtrusive nature and signature use of the ZRTP peer-to-peer encryption protocol, which eliminates third-party encryption key management and tampering risks, Silent Phone sets the gold standard for assuring private communications.

“We are very excited to cement our relationship with Cog Systems by including Silent Phone software on the HTC, secured by D4,” said Joshua Konowe, Chief Strategy Officer at Silent Circle. “Our technology was born from a fundamentally different mobile-first architecture, and we are dedicated to setting the standard for enterprise privacy in today’s mobile-first world.”

The combined Silent Circle HTC, Secured by D4 is now available by contacting Cog Systems directly or through select resellers. While the solution from Silent Circle and Cog Systems is delivered on a high quality commercial device equipped with multiple layers of security, the price has stayed consistent with the existing commercial pricing for the device.
