Armour Communications and Metro Communications agree partnership
23 April 2018
London, 23 April 2018: Armour Communications and Metro Communications have joined forces to help businesses and VIPs keep their calls, messages and data private and confidential.
Armour Mobile enables secure collaboration between trusted colleagues when discussing commercially sensitive information such as corporate deals, intellectual property matters, financial transactions, customer negotiations or for VIP’s the details of their day to day lives.
Armour Mobile prevents mobile communications including voice, messaging, file transfers, video or even conferencing from being intercepted by illicit or unwarranted surveillance, keeping both conversations and associated data private. Importantly, Armour Mobile can provide this not just in a local environment, but also for the corporate traveller keeping communications secure even when using untrusted networks, anywhere in the world.
David Holman, a director at Armour Communications commented; “Armour Comms is committed to working with our partners to deliver secure mobile communications on every day devices to businesses and high profile individuals. Metro Communications brings a solid track record of dealing with corporate executives and high profile individuals and doing so in a discerning, confidential and trusted manner. We are delighted to partner with Metro Communications and look forward to delivering our secure mobile solutions to Metro Communications customers.”
Armour Mobile provides secure voice calls, video calls, one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video conference calls, file attachments and sent/received/read message status. Using a FIPS 140-2 validated crypto core, Armour Mobile has been awarded many other certifications including CPA (Commercial Product Assurance) from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and is included in the NATO Information Assurance catalogue.
Peter Matthews, CEO of Metro Communications, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Armour Communications to provide a world-class service to our customers – businesses and high-profile individuals. Organised criminals, lone-wolf hackers and state-sponsored organisations are accessing private phone calls, messages and data sent from mobile phones. This is a very real threat, and it will only increase. Armour Mobile has been certified by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and approved by NATO. This powerful, user-friendly app removes many security concerns for businesses and VIPs, giving them complete peace of mind.”
