Also available is the KATIM™ Email application, a new addition to the KATIM™ Secure Communications Application Suite which allows end-to-end encrypted communication between KATIM users or even external users through secure web access.

The complete end-to-end 256-bit cryptographic encryption includes body, subject, priority flag in transit and also remain encrypted while at rest, aiming to provide as safe email communications [latform encrypted from third-parties.

KATIM™ aims to provide an integrated and comprehensive solution to meet the needs of nations and enterprises requiring the highest level of protection for critical data and communications.

The four elements to KATIM’s™ secure communications suite include:

· KATIM™ Phone

· KATIM™ OS

· KATIM™ Secure Communications Application Suite and

· KATIM™ Cyber Command Centre

The entire communication suite aims to form a unique and ultra-secure system that is the most secure communications suite available today.

“Mobile communications is critical for every nation and enterprise. As such, the mobile device and applications have become a key target for hackers,” commented Faisal Al Bannai, founder and CEO at DarkMatter.

KATIM focuses on providing users with higher level of security. Overall demand for KATIM™ has grown rapidly over the past twelve months with increased interest globally, Al Bannai added.

KATIM™ Phone features an ultra-rigid aerospace-grade, anodised 7000-series, aluminium alloy, unibody with a beautiful satin finish. It has a toughened Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 screen with diamond like carbon coating, which remains clear, responsive and scratch free. KATIM™ Phone is designed to protect against modern mobile security threats, preventing malware and leaks of sensitive data, by separating secure communications and data from the outside world with a safe wall.

A key feature of KATIM™ Phone is its hardened Android™ operating system. At each boot instance, KATIM™ Phone checks the entire software stack via its bootloader to detect modifications. If this validation fails, boot up is aborted. Throughout its operation KATIM™ Phone continues to monitor the integrity of its environment and in the event of a security attack that threatens a bypass of the built-in security mechanisms, a process is initiated for wiping clean the entire KATIM™ Phone environment, including all the keys and user data stored securely within it.

Other security features include SHIELD MODE™ to securely cut off recording functions, providing ultimate peace of mind for top secret meetings; tamper protection and detection; and encrypted data in transit and at rest. KATIM™ Phone applies strong cryptographic algorithms that are tested and vetted by xen1thLabs™ test & validation labs. Device and user-specific trust roots are stored on a secure element that is cryptographically bound to the platform and it’s boot-up.
