ACS Unveils Mobile Device Data Security Offerings; Petros Mouchtaris Comments

applied communication sciencesApplied Communication Sciences has introduced two new mobile device offerings intended to help protect sensitive data and secure mobile networks.

The company designed the ACS mobile data storage for encrypting data applications stored in smart devices and the ACS Mobile Virtual Private Network Suite for uninterrupted network connection regardless of the users location, ACS said Oct. 2.

Petros Mouchtaris, ACS chief operating officer and applied research lead, said the mobile data storage offering is aimed at helping customers address cyber attacks on mobile devices.

“The number of smart device applications using highly sensitive data is exploding. This is making smart devices the new focal point for sophisticated cyber attacks,” Mouchtaris added.

The AMDS is intended for banking, healthcare, military and emergency services applications and integrates with existing applications.

The AMVS works to connect users to the Internet through devices serving as bridge nodes and uses separate cryptographic providers.

Both services comply with the National Security Agency’s encryption requirements and will be available in December and in the first half of 2014 for devices running Android and iOS operating systems, respectively, ACS says.
