Cellcrypt (News - Alert), a provider of encrypted cell phone voice calling recently launched a new secure conference calling product, called the Cellcrypt Conferencing. This flexible software-based product is best suited for government and enterprise markets and helps improve security for conference call organizers and participants. It increases security for users through a 3-step risk-reduction process and ensures that only authorized callers are able to enter a conference.

In a statement, Richard Greco (News - Alert), Cellcrypt CEO, said, “Cellcrypt has a history of innovation and today's announcement continues the Cellcrypt tradition of bringing leading-edge secure communications products to the market. Given recent hacking publicity, many organizations including businesses, governments and law enforcement agencies now recognize that their conference calls may be vulnerable to interception. The Cellcrypt Conferencing solution is our response to customers who demand assurance that their conference calls are secure."

For each call, the participants are invited from a pre-defined list of contacts and later are registered as a whitelisted group on a per-call basis.  Users, when joining the call are triple-authenticated through a participant PIN, conference code, and inbound phone number identification.

The organizer is offered a real-time authority over all active calls and participants, with the help of a web-based management console. This includes the ability to remove or mute callers, create or delete users, and change passwords; it also provides a tool for capacity management, call history review, and system usage analysis.

Cellcrypt Conferencing offers maximum flexibility and can also support unencrypted, encrypted, or a mix of both types of participants. Organizations, with the help of this feature are able to create trusted and secure conference call meetings.

In related TMC (News - Alert) news, Cellcrypt recently entered into a partnership relation with Verizon (News - Alert) Communications, Inc. to provide encrypted mobile voice services to the U.S. government.
