On September 28, 2015, Silent Circle launched its highly anticipated product Blackphone 2 (BP2). Blackphone 2 is Silent Circle’s unique privacy-first smartphone that comes with Silent OS, Security Center and Spaces that gives privacy back to enterprise. Silent OS is an enhanced Android-based operating system built by Silent Circle to address mobile privacy concerns facing enterprises today. Security Center allows enterprise to fine tune phone, space and app level permissions so that data is controlled at every level. Spaces creates multiple, separate virtual phones on one device, enabling work life and personal life to stay securely compartmentalized.
With the Silent Phone application, calls and texts made from one user to another are fully encrypted, whether they are on iOS, Android, or Blackphone’s Silent OS. And with Silent World minutes users can now make and receive calls with enhanced security from standard mobile or landlines in more than 80 countries with no roaming charges. Silent World calls remain encrypted over conventional calls by connecting securely to the Silent Circle network before the call is routed to the public switch telephone network.
Silent Circle offers a unique Enterprise Privacy Platform that combines devices, software and services to keep business safe and secure by protecting IP and sensitive data. It is the essential complement to existing security infrastructure, ensuring secure mobile communications while guarding against potential threats.
Bill Conner, CEO Silent Circle: “We are very pleased to be working with ELKO Group and look forward to bringing our Enterprise Privacy Platform to our European customers. Our combined expertise in secure communications will offer companies and consumers the ability to take back their privacy.”
Aleksandrs Orlovs, ELKO Group Distribution Director commenting on the cooperation: “We are proud to be the first distributor of Silent Circle products in Eastern Europe and CIS region. Silent Circle security solutions and mobile devices are significant addition to our portfolio and will rise ELKO to another level in security solutions. In today’s mobile-first world, security threats are fundamentally different and changing faster than ever. Now we will be able to offer our partners exclusive and unique security-focused products, designed to deliver privacy, while providing the next generation features.”
