SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA - February 7, 2011 - CellTrust Corporation, the recognized worldwide leader in mobile secure messaging and secure applications for mobile phones (www.celltrust.com), announced today that Celcom, the largest 3G operator in Malaysia (www.celcom.com.my), has deployed the patents-pending, carrier grade CellTrust SecureSMS Consumer and CellTrust SecureSMST Enterprise (SSMS) technology, to bring a secure messaging solution to its wireless subscribers and enterprise customers.
Celcom has launched the CellTrust SecureSMS Consumer app for the BlackBerry operating system, now available for download by Celcom's wireless subscribers on the BlackBerry app store. Additionally, Celcom has made the CellTrust SecureSMSs Enterprise appliance model available to its corporate, governmental and other enterprise customers featuring either a dedicated or hosted server option, which can be integrated into their own enterprise infrastructure. Celcom and CellTrust also plan to introduce a new Secure MMS app this year, as part of a total secure messaging suite.
"Security product companies are hard at work developing a wide range of security clients for mobile phones, from anti-malware and VPN access to smartphone app security, but secure SMS has been largely ignored," said Jeff Wilson, Principal Analysts, Security, Infonetics Research, Inc. "SMS is a ubiquitous and indispensable communication tool for consumers and enterprises, and the need for privacy and compliance will drive everyone to solutions like CellTrust's SecureSMS."
Celcom is Malaysia's most experienced and premier mobile cellular telecommunications company, with more than 11 million subscribers, and international roaming service in 120 countries over 317 networks worldwide. The company was the first to launch 3G service in Malaysia and has the widest 2G, 3G and 3.5G coverage in the country.
"We are pleased to see Celcom take a leadership role in providing a secure messaging solution to wireless subscribers in Malaysia," said Sean Moshir, Chairman and CEO of CellTrust. "CellTrust SecureSMS is particularly critical now, as many security threats have arisen over the recent months with regular SMS communication. Secure messaging capabilities will set Celcom apart from other wireless operators in the region, as consumers increasingly look for applications and services that protect their personal information from the risk of security threats."
CellTrust Secure SMS technology opens up a new way for government agencies, financial institutions, healthcare organizations, education, real estate and the travel industries to share information quickly - and keep information confidential and secure.
