LIMERICK, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2017 / One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI) (“One Horizon”), a leading carrier-grade VoIP solution for mobile providers and smartphones, today unveiled security and functionality updates to its product suite. Meeting the security demand of enterprises and government agencies, One Horizon’s software now allows highly secure voice calls, private instant messaging, and encrypted file transfers on mobile devices when outside the secure confines of their own corporate networks.
Unlike popular consumer messaging and voice apps, One Horizon’s in-app Secure-Mode service allows enterprises and governments to enforce complete end-to-end security of their communications by utilizing a key-cloud or by deploying a standalone encryption key broker service inside their own network, anywhere in the world.
Secure-Mode provides military-grade end-to-end encryption using patented and proprietary crystal-clear voice combined with the ease of use of a consumer-focused app. One Horizon’s white label technology can be deployed on-premises or in the Microsoft Azure cloud, thereby enabling fast and easy adoption across the enterprise.
While using the secure-mode, voice calls, messages, and file transfers are fully encrypted and are routed through the mobile device’s data connection. The data is never stored on any physical storage, not even on the phone itself where keys and messages are stored in-memory only. Upon completion of the secured session, all trace of the communications will be destroyed on the handsets, therefore, even when a handset falls into the wrong hands, the messages are gone.
Brian Collins, CEO of One Horizon Group, stated, “People are making more and more work-related calls on mobile phones and sending text messages on non-secure consumer apps at an increasing rate, making our enterprises more and more vulnerable to infiltration. Our latest Secure-Mode now gives governments and enterprises the comfort of knowing that their business communications are safer and more secure than ever before.”
