Cellcrypt Launches Innovative Secure Conference Calling Product

New Solution Dramatically Reduces Security Risks From Traditional Conference Calling Services and Enables End-to-End Encrypted Voice Calling

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2012) - Cellcrypt (www.cellcrypt.com), a leading provider of encrypted voice calling and messaging for smartphones and tablets, today announced the launch of Cellcrypt Conferencing™, the company's new secure conference calling product. Cellcrypt Conferencing is a flexible, on-site, software-based product for government and enterprise markets, which enables improved security for conference call organizers and participants. 

Cellcrypt Conferencing increases security for users through a 3-step risk-reduction process to ensure that only authorized callers are able to enter a conference. Participants in each call are invited from a pre-defined list of contacts, and then registered as a whitelisted (approved) group on a per-call basis. When joining the call, users are triple-authenticated through a participant PIN, conference code, and inbound phone number identification. A web-based management console offers the organizer real-time authority over all active calls and participants. This includes the ability to remove or mute callers, create or delete users, and change passwords; it also provides a tool for capacity management, call history review, and system usage analysis. 

For the highest level of security, participants may encrypt their connection to a Cellcrypt Conferencing bridge by using Cellcrypt Mobile™ for smartphones and tablets, or by using a secure voice channel to internal PBX systems with Cellcrypt Enterprise Gateway™, both available from Cellcrypt separately. For maximum flexibility, Cellcrypt Conferencing can support unencrypted, encrypted, or a mix of both types of participants. This feature allows organizations to create trusted and secure conference call meetings, with the ability to include "in the clear" callers when necessary and in accordance with organizational security policies. 

"Cellcrypt has a history of innovation and today's announcement continues the Cellcrypt tradition of bringing leading-edge secure communications products to the market. Given recent hacking publicity, many organizations including businesses, governments and law enforcement agencies now recognize that their conference calls may be vulnerable to interception," said Richard Greco, Cellcrypt CEO. "The Cellcrypt Conferencing solution is our response to customers who demand assurance that their conference calls are secure."
