Innovative Edge and KoolSpan Collaborate

August 15, 2013

The two companies have entered into a strategic systems integration and development partnership to implement KoolSpan’s patented TrustChip microSD encryption engine to safeguard data communications from edge and remote devices.

BETHESDA, MD & BRISTOW, VA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Innovative Edge Solutions Inc. has announced a strategic systems integration and development partnership with Maryland-based KoolSpan Inc., developer of the "industry's most robust hardware-based mobile security solutions" to implement KoolSpan's patented TrustChip, a self-contained, secure, military-grade, microSD encryption engine" to safeguard the uninterrupted flow of data communications from edge and remote devices.

"Providing advanced security and encryption capabilities is fundamental to transmitting critical information from edge and remote devices, such as our SilverFox multi-protocol sensor communication system," said Ken Erney, President of Innovative Edge Solutions. "Partnering with an industry-leading company like KoolSpan allows us to transmit information to and from end users cost effectively and securely. Our agreement with KoolSpan bolsters our already robust multi-protocol, end-to-end communications-delivery platform by leveraging KoolSpan's TrustChip market-leading security expertise."

The hardware anchor for KoolSpan's suite of secure encryption applications, TrustChip, also powers security offerings for S-1, the Samsung-affiliated global leader in mobile security and Encrypted Mobile Voice, AT&T's encryption platform. Hailed by Security Week as "the best implementation of commercial-grade voice encryption we have seen to date," KoolSpan's technology is FIPS 140-2-compliant and uses AES256 encryption.

"Deployed in its own optimized hardware environment, TrustChip is insulated from the ever-increasing security threats that can reside in connected and mobile devices and platforms. Since KoolSpan's security application resides in TrustChip rather than in software, every data transaction, such as voice call or data transmission, is coded with a secret, unique series of numbers," said Gregg Smith, CEO of KoolSpan. "We are excited to formalize our partnership with Innovative Edge Solutions and look forward to the business opportunities in the commercial marketplace that this partnership will offer to both parties."
