New Conference Call Security by Cellcrypt

Updated: January 07, 2011

Cellcrypt has recently launched a secure conference service capable of providing device authentication and voice call encryption. The service is available for mobile phones and smartpones including BlackBerry and Nokia smartphones.

The Cellcrypt Secure Conference Service authenticates participants' mobile phones and encrypts conversations end-to-end between each participant and the conference bridge, thus protecting confidential conversations within business networks. To use Cellcrypt's service, participants can simply select a bridge number from their individual phones when entering calls. A similar product, Cellcrypt's Enterprise Gateway solution, offers businesses the chance to secure conference calls between office phones.

This solution lets administrators manage conference calls within an organization by using a simple web console to define the users involved, create bridge numbers, and define call policies such as user white lists and additional access PINs. Individual bridges may also allow selective public telephones access by using caller ID and PINs for authentication. Both services build on Cellcrypt's past security solutions, described by one writer on VoIP Monitor: “Encryption is government-grade and certified to FIPS 140-2 standard by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology.”
