President Barack Obama’s BlackBerry Security Team Develops ‘Ultimate Armor’- An Anti Phone Hacking App
Jul 12, 2011 Blackberry Development
The Los Angeles based developer, Michael Franco and his team who developed the NSA-approved version of the firmware for the US President Barack Obama’s BlackBerry has launched a new company Safe and Secure Mobile.
Michael Franco is the former head of The National Security Agency Advanced Secure Communication Lab where he was responsible for writing specifications for what became the Presidential Secure BlackBerry.
Secure Mobile’s first ever app for Android and BlackBerry is an anti phone hacking app called Ultimate Armor, which is completley invisible to the user but is residing on the device. Ultimate Armor will not be displayed in the application list or user menus, but is there in the device undetectable even against sophisticated voltage monitoring methods. The software repeatedly blocks all attempts to open data ports.
If a user has installed Ultimate Armor in his smartphone, any type of intercepting and monitoring of the smartphone is practically impossible.
“The software is setup in such a way that it can immediately identify any surveillance program and instantly remove the program and further block and close the phone’s leaking data ports”, Michael Franco said.
