ViaNett increases security through Verji SMS from Rosberg AS
Smartphones are subjected to silent attacks these days, you will never know that you are infected and no Anti- virus can detect these threats. This is in other words attacks that are stealthy and untraceable, and you have no means to protect yourself – until now.
These infections are done using SMS as a method of infecting the phone. Most of them are silent, and they infect the phone at the modem level where the operating system of the modem or SIM card is used to gain access to and install malicious software. These methods are used amongst others by the NSA, an attack method called Monkey Calendar.
However, the NSA is just a small part of this picture, and these infections are used to everything from draining your mo- bile account, to physically destroying your phone, to tapping into everything you have on your phone including voice and SMS, even encrypted voice can be monitored, to industrial espionage and targeted attacks on mobile banking solutions.
The Norwegian mobile security company Rosberg System has done research on these serious infections on smartphones, and has created the only scalable and patent pending solution for preventing these attacks.
As a result of the latest disclosures regarding politicians, financial institutions, law-offices and being exposed to espionage by having their mobile phones tapped , this service is more relevant than ever. By subscribing to the service “Verji SMS” those institutions could avert and prevent this happening to them and their businesses.
Verji SMS is an advanced service, but it is easily implemented in your business` mobile telephony service so, that it can prevent eavesdropping and spying of conversations and content on the mobile device.Most large companies use one or more systems to ensure safety around the use of mobile and -smart phones in terms of scanning e-mails and internet usage.
