Deutsche Telekom encrypts phone calls and hardens tablets

Mikael Ricknäs | March 12, 2014
Deutsche Telekom hopes to address the growing mobile security concerns of enterprises with secured devices and an app that encrypts voice and text messages.

Unsurprisingly, the security comes a cost; a SiMKo smartphone costs between €1,700 (US$2,350) and €2,500. Also, export of the devices has to be approved by the German government. Once a company has invested in SiMKo devices, Deutsche Telekom works with it to harden the underlying infrastructure.

"It makes no sense to sell a crypto device and have very open infrastructure in the background," said Deutsche Telekom's Rainer Knirsch.
