PrivateWave, the secure voice communications specialist, today launches an anti-tapping solution, designed to ensure the safe transfer of information between mobile phones and protect businesses from the loss of confidential information - a bigger priority than ever, with industrial espionage estimated to cost international businesses over 126 billion pounds every year.
Using its PrivateGSM software, PrivateWave has developed the Enterprise VoIP Security Suite (EVSS) which is designed to secure phone conversations between landline VoIP phones and mobile devices, protecting business communications. The software is compatible with Nokia, iPhone and Blackberry mobile devices and will soon be fully compatible with devices based on Android.
The development of the EVSS is the result of the encryption of mobile communications and the development of secure VoIP solutions. This integrated system guarantees full protection of voice communications from intrusions, securing all PBX conversations from landline phones to mobile devices and vice versa, resulting in maximum privacy of all employee conversations.
"With traditional channels of identity theft now closing, individuals are increasingly targeting unprotected voice conversations to obtain confidential information as it is almost always uncharted territory for businesses when considering security options," says Carlo Marchini, CEO, PrivateWave. "Recent wiretapping or 'phone hacking' stories reported in the media reveal how easy it has become for individuals to create low-cost illegal phone tapping systems and how this type of interception is a growing threat", he adds. "It has therefore become increasingly important, particularly from a financial and business point of view, for companies to adopt a robust anti-tapping solution that will protect these private conversations".
Created from the recent merger by incorporation of zerozero39 into the former Khamsa Italia, PrivateWave's plans for the UK market are part of a broader company strategy to strengthen its presence in foreign markets and in key target sectors including business enterprise, public sector, not for profit organisations, and business professionals.
Marchini concludes: "Our Enterprise VoIP Security Suite is the first solution in the world able to secure company mobile-PBX and fixed phone conversations which are often at risk of illegal tapping. Bringing our solution to the UK market is an exciting opportunity for us and we are confident it will be a success".
PrivateWave was founded in 2005 with the aim of bring innovation to the secure communications market. Since the beginning, the company chose to cooperate with universities leveraging on the incubation by Acceleratore d'Impresa of the Milan Politecnico and CPStartup of the Switzerland University. Once completed the development of the technology, in late October 2009 the company became an entirely Italian private company and then - in mid October 2010 - changed its name in PrivateWave Italia SpA, following the merger with zerozero39 srl. PrivateWave Italia expects to close 2010 with a revenue of about 1 million Eur and a growth target of 2.5 million Eur in 2011. For further information, please visit www.privatewave.com
