Berlin/Barcelona, February 12, 2018 – Infotecs, the international vendor of cyber security and threat intelligence solutions, will present its high-security solutions at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona (Hall 7, Stand 7L51). Along with presenting our ViPNet Connect secure messenger app that protects mobile communications, Infotecs will also focus on the encrypted transfer of videos from drones.

Meet Infotecs at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona

Today, the protection of data transferred from mobile and other IP devices is critical. There is a high risk for businesses that cyber criminals can intercept and manipulate data of any form (voice or text messages, IP video data, exchange of critical documents and so on). What's more, laws and regulations require that businesses encrypt data synced between mobile devices and CRM, ERP or email systems. One of these regulations is the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that goes into effect at the end of May 2018.

At MWC 2018 (Hall 7, Stand 7L51) Infotecs will show how companies can encrypt the data they exchange and transfer. Security experts will present not only our ViPNet Mobile Security solution, which includes the ViPNet Connect messenger app for iOS and Android mobile devices, but also our solution for the encrypted data transfer for drones that can be used, for example, for the secure monitoring of locations of special forces operations.

"We can transfer encrypted live IP video data received from drones via a 4G/LTE network between the drone, a ground station, or directly end-to-end to a mobile device using AES-256 encryption", says Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH. "Unauthorized parties will not be able to intercept this video data, modify it or share it via social media, like, for example, YouTube or Instagram. With our military-grade software-defined VPN encryption, we can even prevent man-in-the-middle attacks".

It will be the fifth time that Infotecs will participate as an exhibitor in Mobile World Congress that will take place from February 26 to March 1, 2018, at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain. The significant growth in the number of visitors and exhibitors from year to year (2017: 108,000 visitors from 208 countries, 2,300 exhibitors) is a sign of a cross-sector interest in the versatile and growing mobile market. The largest meeting of the mobile industry always presents brand new technologies, products, and services in the field of mobile communications – this time under the motto of “Creating a Better Future”.
