Security & Policing Home Office Event
5 – 7 March 2019
Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre
London, 5 March 2019: Armour Communications, a leading provider of specialist, secure communications solutions, will be demonstrating the latest versions of Armour Mobile, Armour Blue and Armour Desktop at the Home Office’s Security and Policing event.
Armour Comms’ solutions for secure communications work on everyday smartphones, tablets and Windows 10 desktops. With the same usability as consumer-grade apps, and with significantly enhanced security, Armour Mobile supports voice calls, video calls, one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video conference calls, file attachments and sent/received/read message status. Message Burn limits the lifespan of sensitive data at rest, where users can set a time at which their messages are automatically deleted (or as the name implies, ‘burn’) on the recipient’s device, for immediate action after being read, or in the future, according to confidentiality.
Armour will be showing a technology preview of the latest version of Armour Blue which includes Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) functionality that meets the requirements of public safety mission critical voice communication.
The latest version of Armour Desktop extends the secure mobile communications capabilities of Armour Mobile and Armour Blue via a Windows 10 softphone, and, can bring additional Command and Control capabilities.
In 2018, Armour successfully participated in a week of plug-testing for (MCPTT) protocols organised by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) in Texas. The protocols are fully integrated into the Armour Blue solution and supports different use cases including emergency and blue light, police and law enforcement, covert ops and others.
David Holman, Director at Armour Comms commented; “At Armour we are committed to developing and delivering highly usable, secure communications solutions that are equally suitable for use by the Enterprise, as well as the more security conscious organisations such as Government departments, Police and Law Enforcement and Special Services.”
Using a FIPS 140-2 validated crypto core, Armour Mobile has been awarded many other certifications including CPA (Commercial Product Assurance) from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and is included in the NATO Information Assurance catalogue.
