Secure Mobile Voice Communication for Android and iOS
SecuSUITE for Government is a multi-platform solution for end-to-end encryption of voice calls and text messages. Available on iOS and Android™, it connects calls quickly, keeps them secure and ensures excellent voice quality. It works globally, across network barriers and across all mobile networks. Deployed securely on premise (or hosted in a certified third-party data centre or a data centre trusted by the client), it can be managed centrally and end users can be enabled over the air.
Ensure employees can make secure calls from their smartphones
To make encrypted calls, government employees generally have to be sitting at their desks using a secure landline. In our mobile world where everything is time-sensitive, that’s just not viable any more. With SecuSUITE for Government, employees can be truly mobile and make confidential and secure phone calls from their smartphones. Whether economic prosperity, political stability or national security is at stake, it’s a capability which can make all the difference.
Government employees are increasingly able to use a range of mobile devices and operating systems at work – in some cases, they may even own the device (BYOD). In such instances, enabling secure voice communication on a single OS or device type isn’t enough. Enter SecuSUITE for Government – a cross-platform solution which protects mobile communications on the devices and operating systems employees prefer, including iOS and Android.
Ensure users can start making secure mobile calls immediately, without a steep learning curve
Government end users aren’t necessarily technology experts – nor should they have to be. If secure communication technology is cumbersome or hard to use, employees may revert to making calls on unsecured lines or give up the ability to make secure calls whilst out of the office. SecuSUITE for Government is intuitive and similar to the native dialler that employees use every day on their iOS, Android or BlackBerry devices. This means users can focus on communicating instead of on learning a new way to make calls or send text messages.
SecuSUITE for Government is designed with efficiency in mind. All its encryption and authentication processes run seamlessly and securely in the background, without impacting on battery life, performance or usability. Some competing solutions require users to read out numbers or hashtags before communicating – a technology relic from the past century! With SecuSUITE for Government, making an encrypted mobile phone call is as painless as making a regular call. Users are already authenticated, the certificate exchange takes place during call setup and the client is optimised to maintain its SIP connection, meaning users are always reachable.
When the security stakes are high, you need assurance that the communication technology you’re using meets your standards – and those that may be stipulated by regulators. While many of our competitors claim to be certified for a range of uses, BlackBerry has the longest history of gaining security certifications and national approval in the field.
To protect against evolving sophisticated cyber threats, SecuSUITE for Government is secured with strong data-in-transit (DIT) and data-at-rest (DAR) encryption. SecuSUITE for Government can support dual layers of encryption across all data channels, complies with SUITE B cryptography requirements, supports FIPS 140-2 validated keystores and is currently being evaluated for the following Common Criteria certifications based on NIAP Protection Profiles:
Protection Profile for VoIP Applications v.1.3 (VoIP PP)
Collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices v.1.0 (ND cPP)
ND cPP Extended Package SIP Server (ND cPP SIP EP)
These are the certifications which matter when the world’s most security-sensitive agencies vet secure voice solutions.
Secusmart is not only synonymous with security, but is also known for working closely with its clients. To succeed as a provider of highly encrypted telecommunications has required us to gain our users’ trust – the more than 20,000 devices we have supplied to German government agencies is proof that we have achieved this aim.
