Cellcrypt

Expierenced industry specialists

Founded in 2005, Cellcrypt's R&D innovation resulted in Encrypted Mobile Content Protocol (EMCP), an Internet Protocol (IP) based technology that optimizes delivery of encrypted data between mobile devices over wireless networks. EMCP solves the technical challenge of delivering reliable high-performance encryption of voice data over networks with low bandwidth and varying connectivity.

Cellcrypt technology operates over data-enabled networks including GPRS/EDGE (2G), HSPA, CDMA/EV-DO (3G), Wi-Fi™ and satellite, and is optimized to run on Android™, BlackBerry®, iPhone® and Nokia® Symbian smartphones.

Key milestones in the history of Cellcrypt are:

 

  • 2005: Founders began developing core encryption & comms technology (EMCP)
  • 2008: World’s first secure mobile-to-mobile IP-based software-only solution demonstrated
  • 2009: Q1 world’s first secure mobile-to-landline IP-based software-only solution
  • 2009: Q2 world’s first BlackBerry secure voice solution (and first IP call on BlackBerry)
  • 2009: Q3 world’s first IP-based software only secure voice solution over satellite for business cell phones*
  • 2010: Q1 SC Magazine Award Finalist “Best Encryption Product”
  • 2010: Q2 world’s first BlackBerry/CDMA secure voice call
  • 2010: Q3 world’s first IP-based software only encrypted cell phone conference calling service for business cell phones*
  • 2011: Q2 world’s first interoperable secure calls between BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, and Nokia
  • 2011: Q2 certified participation in JUICE 2011 (US Joint Users Interoperability Communications Exercise) demonstrating BlackBerry and Android secure voice in battlefield scenarios
  • 2011: Q4 World’s first interoperable secure messaging between BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android

*Running on the unmodified operating systems of off-the-shelf smartphones, such as BlackBerry and Nokia smartphones.

Cellcrypt's encryption engine, developed by the company at its offices in London, UK, has been certified to FIPS 140-2 standard approved by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Cellcrypt Mobile Baseline™ for BlackBerry® is CESG CAPS approved. CAPS (CESG Assisted Products Service) is a UK Government Cryptographic Evaluation Service run by CESG, the UK’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance. Achieving CAPS certification enables UK Government departments to use Cellcrypt Mobile Baseline to meet their Baseline (IL3, RESTRICTED) security needs. See full announcement for more details.

Cellcrypt has local partners worldwide that provide voice security consulting services including reselling and implementing Cellcrypt-based solutions. In addition Cellcrypt is proud to have several strategic alliances including RIM BlackBerry®, Inmarsat, and AT&T.

Cellcrypt is a privately held company backed by a leading venture capital company in the defense and security space:

  • Porton Capital: Over the last 10 years Porton Capital has grown into one of the UK's leading specialist venture capital firms, with specific focus on defense and security technology businesses. Formed by former UBS investment bankers, Porton Capital manages over $250M under a variety of investment funds.

Cellcrypt enables mobile personnel to use off-the-shelf cell phones to communicate securely and easily, without changing their normal calling routine:

Key Benefits of Cellcrypt Solutions

 

Ease of Use & Management

  • Easy-to-use mobile software application with intuitive user interface that makes a secure call as easy as making a normal call. No additional hardware necessary
  • Industry standard downloadable application that can be deployed in minutes anywhere in the world, and controlled using standard device management software
  • Application can be installed, updated and deleted remotely on to any supported device with access to the internet, including pre-paid devices or devices with no SIM cards
  • Management console instantly disables user

Trustworthy Security

Flexibility, Interoperability and Scalability

  • Government-grade encryption
  • Publicly certified
    • Cryptography validated by US National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) to FIPS 140-2 (certificate #1310)
  • End-to-end encryption: even if a call is intercepted, it can’t be decrypted
  • Double-wrapped algorithms: every cryptographic calculation uses two algorithms in case one becomes vulnerable in the future
  • On-device, software-controlled key management avoids vulnerabilities of keys servers when managing users
  • Seamlessly call between multiple cell phone types on different networks, as well as between multiple office PBX system types
  • Move licenses and infrastructure easily: software-only solutions operate on standard off-the-shelf equipment (smartphones, servers and PBXs)
  • Single device with a single address book makes calls over the most common cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks
  • Use Cellcrypt’s Encrypted Content Delivery Network, or deploy a private solution for managing users’ devices and licenses, call set up and operational management
  • Calling group flexibility: any Cellcrypt Mobile user can securely call any other Cellcrypt Mobile user without administrator intervention, or deploy managed groups of closed users
  • Scalable security architecture supports millions of endpoints with end-to-end security

Recoup cost

Performance

  • Free calls over private and public Wi-Fi networks reduce national and international cellular calling costs
  • Solutions can be implemented to leverage lower national calling rates through use of an office PBX configured to call out to phones on the public telephone network
  • Mobile personnel conduct secure individual and conference calls from their existing location rather than needing to travel to a secure device, location or to the other caller to have a sensitive conversation
  • Utilizes the industry’s only Encrypted Content Delivery Network™ to deliver high call quality, fast call set-up, low latency and high reliability
  • High performance even across low-, contended- or variable-bandwidth networks including GPRS and satellite
  • Collaborate with network service providers to improve network performance beyond that which is available to standard IP-based applications.
