Pre-orders can be made from September 29th First units will be delivered in December 2015
The global private communications market welcomes a major player from the 29th of September when Sikur GranitePhone pre-orders become available. The smartphone, first to be fully focused on user privacy, can be bought through the website (www.granitephone.com) for $849 USD up until November 15th, 2015 – after which the price will return to $999USD. In addition to direct sales, the device can also be purchased through Sikur’s distribution channel world-wide and will soon be available through telecom operators.
Since its official launch in March this year at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), in Barcelona, Sikur GranitePhone has attracted the attention of government agencies, defense companies, executives and consumers concerned about the protection of their privacy. The Sikur GranitePhone was designed to ensure absolute privacy for calls, messaging and chats.
“With GranitePhone you can create a corporate digital environment safe for the exchange of strategic information, without compromising productivity and speed offered by mobile devices” says Frederico D’Avila, CEO of Sikur.
What differentiates the device from other security solutions is that it is not limited to only offering applications with encryption features. From its hardware to its applications, the device was designed with a focus on security, eliminating loopholes that enable theft and data surveillance.
The security architecture has been carefully designed to mitigate security issues by adding multiple layers of protection to your phone.
One of the major differences is that storage of data via the Cloud takes place in encrypted form. GranitePhone users are not limited to accessing data stored on their device – they can access data via PC and other mobile devices (Android and iOS), providing users with greater flexibility without the loss of privacy.
“Our goal is to create a large private communication network. The exchange of information among users within this community occurs in a private environment with numerous security controls” says Leonardo Cooper, CTO of Sikur.
“ARCHOS, through its BTB subsidiary Logic Instrument is pleased to have been selected as industrial and development partner for this project as the request for secured mobile solution is increasing” says Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.
The first batch of devices will be delivered in December 2015 to Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the USA. In Brazil the handset should arrive in the first half of 2016.
Sikur is a Brazilian company specialized in security and cyber defense. With offices in the US, UAE and Brazil, Sikur assists governments, private companies and executives. Its secure communication platform is rapidly growing and already has thousands of users around the world.
