Armour delivers even more control to the end user to safeguard communications involving sensitive information

London, UK - Armour Communications, a leading provider of specialist, secure communications solutions, has announced availability of its latest innovation Armour Mobile Message Burn. Message Burn limits the lifespan of sensitive data at rest. Users can set a time at which their messages are automatically deleted (or as the name implies, ‘burn’) on the recipient’s device. This can be either a future date and time, or an amount of time after the message has been read by the recipient and can be set as a default and altered message-by-message according to their confidentiality.

Armour provides a wide range of capabilities for secure communications which include:

• Armour Mobile – secure calls, UK Government certified by NCSC for use at OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE and with additional security layers able to handle SECRET. Users can switch between Voice and Video and back, mid-call.
• Armour Desktop - extends the secure mobile communications capabilities of Armour Mobile via a Windows 10 softphone.
• Unified Communications – Armour Mobile integrates with Skype for Business, enabling organisations to benefit from the reduced costs and increased flexibility of Voice over IP communications.
• Armour Blue – which includes Push to Talk features designed for Blue Light services.

David Holman, director at Armour Communications said: “Message Burn is the latest in a long line of specialist security features for Armour Mobile, and has been developed as a direct result of listening to the requirements of our customers. At Armour we aim to provide the most flexible secure communications platform, while adhering to industry best practices and providing NCSC approved solutions for security-conscious organisations around the world.”

A UK government certified solution, Armour Mobile can be downloaded from the app stores and used on company issued or staff owned devices (BYOD). It is easily deployed and centrally managed either on the Armour secure cloud, or as a full on-premises installation, giving a completely secured and controlled solution.

Armour Mobile provides secure voice calls, video calls, one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video conference calls, file attachments and sent/received/read message status. Using a FIPS 140-2 validated crypto core, Armour Mobile has been awarded many other certifications including CPA (Commercial Product Assurance) from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and is included in the NATO Information Assurance catalogue.
