Cog Systems Launches the World’s Most Secure Smartphone in Australia

SYDNEY, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cog Systems has released the HTC One A9, Secured by D4™, the most secure smartphone on the market today.  It is now commercially available to governments, enterprises and discerning consumers in Australia for the first time.

 Cog Systems has a long heritage in designing and implementing ‘hardened’ mobile devices for select governments. The company leverages their D4 Secure Platform™ to develop SDKs for specific categories of connected devices. D4 Secure SDKs™ 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.  This same technology and expertise is now available for use in the commercial markets.

“With 8.4 billion connected devices to be in use by the end of 2017 and a projected 20 billion devices by 2020, a good-enough approach to security is not the right answer,” said Cog Systems CMO Carl L. Nerup. “Our D4 Secure SDK™ will enable a meaningful upgrade to the security posture available for all connected devices.”

Cog’s HTC One A9, Secured by D4™ is only the beginning.  The company is expanding the D4 Secure Platform™ to other connected devices beyond mobile, including gateways and IoT devices. This broad reach will allow for a complete ecosystem approach to unlocking the true potential of connected devices while gaining a level of security that can be trusted.

Additionally, the D4 Secure Platform™ and its related technology is currently in use today for products within most major western governments organizations, including Australia.

“Privacy and security do not stand in opposition to one another,” continued Nerup. “They can and do co-exist as evidenced by our newest Secured by D4 Mobile Device from HTC is a proof point that one truly can have it all.”

The HTC One A9, Secured by D4™ is now available by contacting Cog Systems directly.



Cog, the solution for securing IoT, has been preparing for the revolution in connected device architecture since 2014. The traditional architecture of IoT and smart devices creates a massive attack surface, forcing security policy to accept high risk, restricted access, which poses a burden on users. By coupling the same modularity techniques used in cloud computing with the fundamentals of security, trustworthiness, robustness, and adaptability to enable highly secure connected devices, Cog proactively delivers the assurance of defense-grade security for world governments, defense organizations, and corporate enterprises. In addition, the company now offers the first secure smartphone with the most certifications on the U.S. Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) list.
