Security starts at home
CellTrust's Data Centers provide a secure computing environment suitable for hosting critical applications and sensitive data by creating an inside-out mobile security foundation capable of supporting a sophisticated Secure Mobile Information Management (SMIM) platform. The Data Center incorporates an uninterruptible power supply, physical access controls, disaster recovery systems, and high-levels of security management across all technology platforms ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer applications and data.
Eliminating costly downtime
Messaging gateways are judged by their ability to provide continuous operations and communication for the network services and to the customers they support. To maximize availability, CellTrust has developed an infrastructure that minimizes, and almost eliminates, the failures that cause downtime. CellTrust's world-class gateway is maintained on a 24x7 basis. During routine preventative maintenance where planned outages are scheduled, CellTrust customers are switched to the Company's highly secure, secondary Data Center in order to maintain uninterrupted operations. The CellTrust Multimodal gateway achieves high-availability by implementing a fully redundant, fault-tolerant, and concurrently maintainable IT and support infrastructure architecture in which all possible hard failures are predictable and deterministic.
CellTrust Implements Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in all Secure Mobile Products
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specifies a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. AES was announced by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as U.S. FIPS PUB 197 (FIPS 197) [PDF] on November 26, 2001 and has been adopted as an encryption standard by the U.S. government. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that can encrypt (encipher) and decrypt (decipher) information. Encryption converts data to an unintelligible form called ciphertext; decrypting the ciphertext converts the data back into its original form, called plain text. AES is one of the most popular algorithms used in symmetric key cryptography.
