ZURICH, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2016) - Article12, a global provider of affordable and secure smartphones and applications, today launched its highly anticipated enterprise-grade mobile privacy platform to provide enterprises with the freedom to communicate securely through applications and devices specifically engineered to ensure privacy.
As mobile communication becomes ubiquitous and cybercrime proliferates, global enterprises and governments are seeking a secure mobile platform they can trust to prevent malicious interference and attacks. Article12 offers a portfolio of secure mobile devices and apps, combining the power of a multi-layered enterprise security platform with the familiarity and affordability of today's popular mobile operating systems, ensuring every conversation and message is safe and secure.
"We believe that everyone in the mobile economy has the right to communicate securely without the fear of intrusion or attack, and Article12's mission is to make that right a reality," said Derek Roga, CEO of Article12. "Our passion for security is matched only by our commitment to providing enterprises and governments with affordable, flexible solutions that can meet their specific security requirements."
Article12 was founded by CEO Derek Roga, previously executive vice president of global sales at Silent Circle, and Chief Operating Officer Tyler Nelson, former senior executive of Blackberry. Eamonn Garry, Article12's chief technology officer, was previously senior vice president of engineering and operations at CENX.
The name Article12 is based on Article12 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states, "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honor and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks."
Commented Roga, "Article12 is an article of faith that has driven our development and business model, and we believe it should underpin all future technology development."
Article12 currently has $520 million in contracted bookings and expects volume commercial delivery to commence during the second half of 2016.
Only the Article12 enterprise-grade mobile privacy platform:
- provides a full-stack, multi-layered security architecture tied to specifically engineered hardware, offering superior protection against common attack vectors.
- offers a line of custom designed smartphones that run Article12's security hardened version of the Android operating system. Controlling the entire trusted operating environment, from the CPU, through the firmware, boot loader, operating system, and apps, Article12 ensures a secure and trusted execution environment with a hardware-based Root of Trust -- with provenance back to the manufacturing of the smartphone.
- enables enterprises, governments and regulated industries to deploy an on-premise management extension that allows enterprise IT departments to directly manage, control, and support deployments of Article12 devices. The Article12 Enterprise Manager integrates with leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions.
