Bull unveils new smartphone
Oct 07, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Bull, a provider of digital systems, has announced the launch of Hoox, a new smartphone for business users.
With strict control of access to user data, which is stored locally encrypted, Hoox prevents personal data from being used on third party servers. In compliance with the rules set down by the French national information systems security body ANSSI2, Hoox brings with it the reassurance of in-depth security; from the very core of the device right through to the application layers. Hoox uses a secure, Android-based operating system developed by Bull's cyber-security R&D teams. It features an EAL4+3 certified encryption chip and a biometric sensor (for enhanced strong authentication), a digital strong-box and anti-intrusion management on all its ports.
Hoox provides encryption of voice calls and text messages, as well as for email and all data being stored or exchanged. All user identification data - including digital fingerprints - is stored in the phone's digital strong-box to be used only at local level. As a comprehensive offering incorporating all security functions, Hoox gives the organization total control over all its information flows (voice calls, messaging, email and data).
"High-security communications should be both easy and fast," commented Franck Greverie, Executive Vice-President of Bull Security Solutions. "We have designed the Bull Hoox range of products so users no longer have to be concerned about security and confidentiality. Intuitive and powerful, the devices are perfectly suited for business use, where confidentially is the top priority." "The addition of Hoox to our product range reaffirms Bull's technology leadership in secure business communications," added Philippe Duluc, Director of Bull's Cyber-security business.
The phone's inherent hardware security and anti-intrusion ports prevent any data from being stolen or malware from being introduced onto the device. All the data is encrypted, and the biometric sensor locks the device, so only its official 'owner' can activate it. And all communications exchanged or stored via the phone are encrypted, so your calls, texts and emails are all secure, the company said.
