InfoWatch debuts surveillance proof smartphone
Promotes new Taiga smartphone at GITEX Technology Week
InfoWatch Group is using its participation at GITEX Technology Week to promote its new Taiga smartphone.
The offering is an integrated hardware and software solution with technology to prevent applications and the OS from collecting users' data.
Kristina Tantsyura, general manager of InfoWatch Gulf, says that "Developed over four years of research by information security experts at InfoWatch and Taiga Systems, this new product represents the increase in demand for solutions to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) related threats and data leaks via mobile devices."
Tantsyura says with the rising risk of data leaks through consumer mobile devices, smartphone manufacturers, and software developers, the best way for corporations to reliably protect their information on a mobile device is the Taiga system that eliminates software backdoors and integrates data loss prevention (DLP) software.
The smartphone runs on proprietary Android 6.0 firmware and provides complete protection against leakage of corporate data such as contacts, SMS, geodata, photos, videos, and documents stored and accessed on employee mobile devices by incorporating InfoWatch's Traffic Monitor DLP system.
