CellTrust Corporation announces availability of SecureSMS™ Micro Client on the Android mobile platform

Android Market will Accelerate Proliferation of Clients on Handsets

Scottsdale, Arizona, September 22, 2008 - CellTrust Corporation (www.celltrust.com), a leading provider of secure mobile messaging and applications, today announced that its patent pending SecureSMS Micro Client Technology (MCT) is now available on the Google Android mobile platform. Currently available on Windows Mobile, Symbian OS and BREW operating platforms, SecureSMS enables enterprises, governments, financial institutions and consumers to transmit sensitive and confidential information from handset-to-handset, server-to-handset or vice versa, utilizing the ubiquitous and user-friendly SMS channel.

“The forthcoming Android Market will remove many of the previous barriers for companies wanting to publish mobile applications,” said J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., VP and chief analyst, Mobile and Wireless, Frost & Sullivan. “Android is a developer’s dream. You write once and run everywhere, and because of the open nature of Google’s business philosophy, the use of mobile client applications is expected to grow significantly.” MCT allows for services on the handset typically not offered by operators. CellTrust’s SecureSMS is a case in point, yielding revenue to both the service provider and the operator. As compared to a static mobile application, a mobile service running on a mobile client interacts with a server to provide real-time information and a much improved user experience.

“Because of the rich user-interface and functionality, clients on handsets will ultimately become the norm rather than the exception,” said CellTrust CEO and IT and Mobile Security authority, Sean Moshir. “And thanks to Google Android, getting clients on mobile devices has just been fast-tracked.”

CellTrust’s SecureSMS Micro Client allows businesses to exchange critical information with customers in a trusted environment on the mobile device. Setting itself apart from consumer-grade SMS, CellTrust’s SecureSMS provides end-to-end privacy via a highly encrypted, tamper-proof transfer process. The sender also has the ability to confirm when text messages are delivered and/or read. The solution also allows no size limitations along with remote wipe functionality that ensures users can clear the handset if it is lost or stolen. CellTrust SecureSMS benefits include:

  • Secure end-to-end encryption meeting the highest security standards
  • Optionally, specify your own encryption scheme for your Circle of Trust
  • Unique key for each handset with decryption limited to the designated device
  • Communicates over SMS channel (resilient and supported by all carriers)
  • Delivery and read confirmation
  • Remote data wipe in case of loss or unauthorized access attempts
  • Unlimited message size (limited by handset hardware)
  • Integrated with CellTrust SecureSMS Gateway supporting 218 countries and 700 carriers
  • Optional message archiving for reporting and compliancy
  • Rebrandable to your identity via SecureSMS FAVE icon
  • Certified with major carriers, operating systems and handset manufacturers
