With decades of collective innovation within the security industry, CellTrust and Theta Lake are redefining secure mobile communications, capture and compliance with a native integration

We’ve talked a lot recently about the intense regulatory scrutiny wealth management and other financial service organizations are currently facing with the growing use of mobile applications for business communications.  And while compliance with retention and supervision rules, including MiFID II, FINRA Rule 3110, FCA SYSC or SEC 17a-4 Books and Records, is paramount within financial services, equally important is the protection and security of client records and information against unauthorised access or use.

Obligation to secure client data
Mobile messaging channels like SMS and WhatsApp make communication easy for colleagues and clients, and their usage has skyrocketed in remote and hybrid environments. Protection of financial and personal client information is a crucial responsibility and obligation under the SEC’s Regulation S-P.  Firms regulated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in the US, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), and the European System of Financial Supervision (ESFS), are required to have policies and procedures in place to ensure the security and integrity of client data.

“Mobile communication is a critical component of modern business operations, especially in highly regulated industries,” said Sean Moshir, co-founder and CEO of CellTrust. “Our partnership and integration with Theta Lake will provide organizations with the tools they need to ensure compliance, mitigate risks, and maintain a secure mobile communication environment.”

Secure and compliant mobile communications
For this, CellTrust offers SL2™ –  a mobile communication platform designed to securely manage and protect sensitive information exchanged via messaging and voice calls. SL2 features CellTrust’s patented Track™, SecureVoice™, and SecureSMS® technologies for encrypted messaging, voice recording, and compliance features to ensure confidentiality, data protection and regulatory compliance.

“In today’s dynamic business landscape, regulated organizations and their users demand mobile communications that enable them to more effectively engage with customers, partners, and other stakeholders on their preferred channels,” said Devin Redmond, Co-Founder and CEO, Theta Lake. “Our partnership and integration with CellTrust empower users to communicate effortlessly from any location via their mobile channels while still maintaining compliance with regulatory mandates.
