  • DigiSafe MobileCrypt, offered by ST Electronics' Info-Security arm, is a microSD card which provides encryption to mobile phonecalls and text messages over both 3G data and Wi-Fi networks. The product has both a frontend encryption module in the card and backend MobileCrypt servers.

    The encryption function is implemented inside the microSD card, and all encryption and description processing is performed inside the card.
  • InspireTech, an multi-platform product vendor, showcased EasiShare, a dropbox-styled service which enables information to be synced and shared securely across various devices including tablets, smartphones, Windows desktops and Macs.

  • When files are shared with people outside the organization, two-factor authentication (2FA) through SMS is sent to the receiver.

    File originators can also restrict access to select files which, InspireTech said, is critical for meetings where sensitive information is transacted. There is also an "auditable" trail which can capture which files are read by whom and when.
