SecureCom Mobile -- The Answer to Secure Smartphone Communications in the Wake of Blackberry Decryption Key Incident

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 15, 2016) -  SecureCom Mobile ("SecureCom", "the Company") (CSE: SCE) (OTC: SCQBF) (FRANKFURT: S6UN), reports that multiple news stories yesterday confirmed a high-level surveillance probe by Canada's federal policing agency has had a global encryption key for BlackBerry devices since 2010. It continues to reinforce the fact that everyone's text and voice communications are potentially unprotected from third parties. The article confirms that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police intercepted and decrypted roughly one million PIN-to-PIN BlackBerry messages in connection with the probe. The report does not disclose exactly how the key (a piece of code that could break the encryption on virtually any BlackBerry message sent from one device to another) was acquired.

The SecureCom Mobile encryption solution creates a new random decryption key with each message sent, deleting each decryption key with every new message line. Only the SecureCom Mobile recipients device and senders device have the key for each individual message. Neither SecureCom Mobile nor the carrier has access to any key to any communication. A new encryption key is required for each peer to peer SecureCom subscriber's message sent in real time.

Roland Bopp, SecureCom Mobile's CEO commented, "Since the Snowden revelations of US National Security Agency ("NSA") worldwide text message recording, and the more recent FBI - Apple encryption litigation, we are once again reminded in this latest Blackberry decryption key incident, that our smartphone communications are potentially in the hands of government, policing agencies, and ultimately the public domain. The Company's chat and voice encryption technology is a safety net for our subscribers, that can protect them from surveillance. Their communications cannot be circumvented by networks or phone manufacturers or even SecureCom itself."
