Infotecs Showcased Secure Mobile Communication for Smartphones and Tablets (Android/iOS) at MWC 2017Berlin, )
Last week more than 108,000 attendees from 208 countries and territories as well as 2,300 companies participated in the largest international mobile industry meeting. The numbers show an increasing and continuing trend in mobile networking. This year´s slogan “Mobile as Next Element” brings it to the point. Mobile is the force behind every emerging innovation in many different branches. Everything is getting connected and could be reachable from everywhere. MWC 2017 focused on Connected Cars, IoT, Industrial IoT, Virtual Reality and of course the newest devices and applications as well as 5G and artificial intelligence.
The Infotecs team presented its advanced mobile encryption solution ViPNet Mobile Security in hall 7 at stand 7L51. The mobile application ViPNet Client can secure and encrypt the complete mobile business communication. Besides the encryption of calls, emails and messages the access to company resources and applications like ERP or CRM can be secured as well. Business people also benefit from the mobile application ViPNet Connect. This messenger app enables secure peer-to-peer chat and file exchange with colleagues and business partners. The solution ViPNet Mobile Security is available for iOS and Android and is integrated with the MobileIron EMM system thanks to the technology partnership between Infotecs and the standalone Enterprise Mobility Management leader MobileIron. That is why businesses and enterprises can also implement a comprehensive IT security strategy and the management of mobile devices efficiently.
The ViPNet technology is highly secure because of its symmetrical key management which brings an unbeatable key advantage. This enables direct point-to-point encryption without the need to exchange public keys, certificates or signatures. Due to the absence of public-key-infrastructure (PKI) and internet-key-exchange (IKE) information cannot be lost or compromised by cyber criminals. While connection losses or new connection setups man-in-the-middle attacks and insider threats are totally impossible. There is no need for a key exchange and handshake. This makes ViPNet the ideal solution for modern mobile applications.
“Our mobile IT security solution for iOS and Android attracted high interest by visitors especially because we have significant advantages in the mobile segment compared to standard-based VPN solutions. After a connection loss ViPNet Mobile Security could establish the connection very quickly without a new authentication session. A network change with the mobile device, e.g. between WiFi and LTE 4G, is automatically detected by our technology”, explains Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH. “The ViPNet Technology is suitable for highest security requirements like industry 4.0, time critical M2M communication and the protection of critical infrastructures.”
Infotecs is going to attend Mobile World Congress also next year which will be held from February 26th to March 1st 2018 again in Fira Gran Via in Barcelona.
