End-to-end encryption for commercial smartphones

Powerful voice encryption for today’s mobile workforce

Many enterprises and government agencies are faced with the increasingly complex task of managing mobile device use among employees while still maintaining security. Whether employees are using their mobile phones to discuss high-stakes business strategies or sensitive but unclassified (SBU) government operations, the risk of call and text interception is real.

To provide the high-level security needed in today’s mobile workplace, Verizon Wireless and Cellcrypt have come together to create Verizon Cypher, a powerful, cost-effective voice encryption solution that can be used on commercial smartphones.

How Verizon Cypher works

Verizon Cypher provides end-to-end encryption between callers, even if the call crosses over multiple networks. Encryption provides inherent security, so calls remain secure, even if intercepted.

Verizon Cypher encryption solution delivers:

  • The advanced functionality and cost savings of a consumer device, with the ease of management of government-compliant security.
  • High-level assurance with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-certified voice security to counter cybersecurity threats.
