Cellcrypt (News - Alert), a provider of encrypted voice calling on mobile phones, has launched encrypted voice calling for the iPhone.
Company officials said that Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone (News - Alert) is a version of its encrypted voice calling application that runs on Apple devices running iOS and operates over Wi-Fi, GSM, CDMA and satellite networks.
"The introduction of Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone further strengthens Cellcrypt's market leadership position," said Richard Greco (News - Alert), CEO of Cellcrypt, in a statement.
Greco said that the performance of Cellcrypt's application for iPhone is very impressive. In trials, customers are reporting international calling with near-perfect voice quality and latency better than landline calling, he said.
He said that recently, an elite military communications unit made a call over a portable satellite terminal using Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone and were so impressed that they immediately ordered a full-scale operational evaluation.
Cellcrypt Mobile for iPhone is available immediately from the App Store and requires Cellcrypt's Encrypted Voice Service from Cellcrypt.
It supports iOS 4 on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 and is interoperable with Cellcrypt running on other devices such as Nokia, Android (News - Alert) and BlackBerry smartphones.
According to company officials, Cellcrypt Mobile provides voice call encryption for commercially available off-the-shelf cell phones using government-certified security through an easy-to-use downloadable application that makes highly secure calling as easy as making a normal phone call.
Cellcrypt's software-only solution uses the IP data channel of cellular (2G, 3G, and 4G), Wi-Fi and satellite networks and can be deployed to personnel anywhere in the world in less than 10 minutes.
Recently, TMCnet reported that in an effort to provide smartphone users with secure calling, Cellcrypt had introduced an encrypted voice calling solution, called Cellcrypt Mobile, which provides government-grade voice call security on commercial off-the-shelf smartphones.
In order to support Android smartphones, the company released a new version of its encrypted voice calling application, Cellcrypt Mobile for Android, which runs on Android devices operating over Wi-Fi, GSM and CDMA wireless networks.
