How safe is the data stored on your smartphone? Depends on the capabilities of the adversaries you face. If you work in a high-stakes industry, the adversaries you face could be sophisticated enough to perform chip-off on your device if they get a hold of it and access all data it stores. How does Secure Group protect you from that?
Today, we are pleased to announce that the Secure Administration System (SAS), Secure Group’s MDM portal, is updated to reflect the functionality of Secure OS 2.0. It is now supplemented with tools for managing the availability of all new features on Secure Phone devices.
Today we released version 1.15.0 of Secure Manager, the billing and subscription management platform used by Secure Group's partners. The release includes fixes to some minor issues which affected the system performance.
The new version of Secure OS, 2.2.0, introduces Emergency Center and Incognito Mode. These new features help you react quicker in critical situations, and give you more control over wiping the device when necessary.
The new version of Secure Chat is finally here! We can proudly say that it is one of the most significant releases in the past few months as it is focused on stability and fine-tuning. Version 2.1.2 brings critical bug fixes in the area of data and battery consumption and self-destructing messages.
Secure Group’s partner network continues to expand. Today, we are proud to announce the launch of the websites of two companies that recently joined our ranks: Secure Com World and Secret Holder. You can check out their region-specific offerings and submit any inquiries directly to them.
The next frontier in the fight to regain privacy online is about the security of data at rest. End-to-end encryption does a great job at securing communications, but contemporary attacks find ways around it by targeting unencrypted app databases and storages. This is why we created Secure Vault – an encrypted container app to store all your notes and files.
We’ve always tried to keep behind the scenes the complex encryption processes that guarantee secure communications to our users and only present security solutions that are easy and intuitive to use. In another step towards that goal, Secure Group is excited to introduce Security Lock – a single passcode for app lock and data encryption that unifies the flow for our flagship applications. It makes its big debut in Secure Chat v2.1.0, and will soon be incorporated in Secure Email and other major applications on Secure Phone.
We have written about the almost infinite possibilities for surveillance and malicious activity presented by flaws in the Signaling System 7 (SS7) protocol used by virtually all mobile networks worldwide. A security research firm recently demonstrated how the same exploit can be used to drain a Bitcoin wallet. Which certainly drives home the point about how easy subverting (otherwise reliable) security systems can be.
Last week, a report by Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet revealed a vulnerability in the WPA2 protocol used by virtually all Wi-Fi networks worldwide. The flaw allows hackers to perform a man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack and decrypt and read all Internet traffic going through the network. However, Secure Phone users should rest assured that their security is not compromised.
