Logic Instrument announces that the first batch of 3,000 GranitePhones has been delivered in January to Mirabilis/Sikur.
As a result of an efficient collaboration (development completed in less than four months) between Archos Group (Archos and Logic Instrument) and Mirabilis (Sikur), the GranitePhone is entirely designed around Sikur’s security solution. The secured Smartphone is marketed by the Mirabilis Group in North and South America. Logic Instrument is a partner for EMEA.
Intended for users (consumer, professional and enterprise) wishing to protect the integrity and confidentiality of their communications, GranitePhone offers the highest level of security for voice, messages, data and instant messaging of all Smartphones available today.
Smartphones as a gateway for corporate networks
The Center for Strategic and International Studies and McAfee estimated annual losses resulting from cyber-attacks close to 400 billion Euros. Smartphones are increasingly being used as gateways for hackers accessing user credentials or reading sensitive stored data, even if the devices are not connected to the network.
No backdoors, no chance for malware
Thanks to Granite OS, the operating system developed by Sikur, the 5-inch Smartphone offers complete protection. Users can’t leave the Granite OS and they are tied to the preinstalled apps. There is no way to download applications from an App Store or install apps from an SD card. This ensures that no malware can infiltrate the system. In addition, the disabled GPS Tracking improves user privacy.
"We conducted a bug bounty program for the last eighteen months and we are the only company worldwide that has not been hacked yet!" Kenny Holroyd, Director of Sikur, said proudly.
Loic Poirier, CEO of Logic Instrument, stated: “We expect to have delivered a significant volume by the end of March and Logic Instrument will distribute GranitePhone in Europe. We are proud to participate in the development, the production and the distribution of this high-value solution which both demonstrates our technological expertise and broadens our offer to our customers".
Lightweight (142g), ultrathin, powerful and elegant, it will appeal to those for whom secure communication is paramount, without sacrificing technology and design. The Smartphone features a 4G LTE module, a 16 and an 8 megapixels camera, a full-HD display, an 8-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
GranitePhone is available for 925 € including two years of access to the security solution.
