Silent Circle, suppliers of the Blackphone secure mobile handset, claims there is unprecedented demand for encrypted communications following the high-profile theft of intellectual property from corporations like Sony. In response, Silent Circle will release a string of new secure communications products and services aimed at enterprise customers.
Speaking at Mobile World Congress, co-founder Mike Janke said:
Never before have businesses been under attack as they are today for their intellectual property.
An improved secure smartphone, Blackphone 2, is scheduled for release in July, and the Blackphone+ tablet is expected later in the year. In addition, Silent Circle will offer new services, including a privacy-oriented app store, and an encrypted calling plan that works with users who do not own Blackphones.
