SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. - December 6, 2006 - Leveraging his longstanding security expertise from anti-virus to enterprise patch management in the information technology arena, Sean Moshir today announced that protecting the mobile platform to meet today's critical security standards is highly accomplishable, soon resulting in more meaningful productivity enhancements for mobile devices. There are currently 2.2 billion mobile devices in use today, according to online news aggregate www.sedo.com. Moreover, 219.4 million wireless subscribers reside in the United States (Source: CTIA, the international source for the wireless telecommunications industry).
According to telecommunications analyst firm InfoTech, which completed a recent survey titled Secure Mobile Information Management (SMIM) and the Road Warrior, 88 percent of respondents ranked secure management of their mobile information as an "important" requirement for their mobile communications activities with over half of this same segment willing to sacrifice some level of productivity to ensure the secure management of their mobile information.
Utilizing the security advancements of patent-pending Micro-Agent Technology (MAT) software, Moshir founded earlier this year CellTrust® Corporation (www.celltrust.com), a secure Mobile Information Management software and services company. CellTrust's MAT technology provides the first, advanced level of security for mobile devices typically found on more sophisticated enterprise computing systems. Moshir strategically aligned the requirement for the secure management of information on mobile devices to develop the company's core SMIM offering, slated to launch the latter half of Q1 2007.
"Having spent most of my professional career developing enterprise security solutions and tracking industry trends closely, it was clear that the wireless-mobile sector would be the next important technology space to embrace security. Productivity on mobile devices is quickly becoming a business priority on all levels," said CellTrust® CEO Sean Moshir. "To this end, CellTrust® creates a trusted place for business professionals and consumers alike to operate in the mobile environment."
With beta testing underway, CellTrust's SMIM offering brings business professionals and mainstream consumers secure "on the go" personal productivity management for their mobile devices. CellTrust's initial SMIM offering will be available on a variety of phones and carriers including Research In Motion's BlackBerry, Cingular Wireless, Sprint, TÂ· Mobile and Verizon among others.
