PrivateWave has introduced a mobile phone anti-tapping solution.
Designed to combat the threat of industrial espionage and the implications to businesses in terms of cost due to loss of confidential data through unprotected conversations, the Enterprise VoIP Security Suite (EVSS) is designed to secure phone conversations between landline, VoIP phones and mobile devices.
According to PrivateWave, the integrated system guarantees full protection of voice communications from intrusions, securing all PBX conversations from landline phones to mobile devices and vice versa, resulting in privacy of all employee conversations.
The software is compatible with Nokia, iPhone and Blackberry mobile devices and will soon be fully compatible with devices based on Android.
Carlo Marchini, CEO of PrivateWave, said: “With traditional channels of identity theft now closing, individuals are increasingly targeting unprotected voice conversations to obtain confidential information, as it is almost always uncharted territory for businesses when considering security options.
“Recent wiretapping or ‘phone hacking' stories reported in the media reveal how easy it has become for individuals to create low-cost illegal phone tapping systems and how this type of interception is a growing threat. It has therefore become increasingly important, particularly from a financial and business point of view, for companies to adopt a robust anti-tapping solution that will protect these private conversations.
“Our Enterprise VoIP Security Suite is the first solution in the world able to secure company mobile-PBX and fixed phone conversations which are often at risk of illegal tapping. Bringing our solution to the UK market is an exciting opportunity for us and we are confident it will be a success.”
