Release Strengthens BYOD Productivity and Mobile Compliance Enforcement by Archiving Business-related Text Messages, and Solidifies Go-to-Market Channel with Leading Archiver
FINRA Annual Conference, Washington D.C. – May 16, 2017 – CellTrust Corporation, a global leader in traceable, secure mobile communication and message aggregation, today announced the availability of CellTrust SL2™—the next generation of CellTrust SecureLine™ for mobile compliance enforcement – demonstrating continuing leadership in enterprise Bring-Your-Own Device (BYOD) solutions. CellTrust also announced a new integration and partnership with Smarsh, the leading provider of information archiving solutions for compliance, e-discovery and risk management. CellTrust SL2™is now available directly from Smarsh.
“It’s been seen time and again that companies who are slow to adopt strong, practical BYOD policies can face large fines from the regulatory enforcement bodies,” said Sean Moshir, Chairman and CEO of CellTrust. “CellTrust SL2 helps meet compliance requirements and empowers the workforce with seamless mobile communications that can be secured, traced and archived for increased productivity and enhanced customer service.”
CellTrust SL2 allows regulated industries to put communication policies in place and enforce them. The retention and oversight of communications such as text messaging has become a key issue for regulatory compliance and eDiscovery.
“An extremely high percentage of organizations allow their employees to use text messaging for business communications on a personal phone or device, but many of those organizations don’t have an archiving system in place to ensure compliance with regulatory or eDiscovery requirements, which can lead to fines, sanctions, or legal issues,” said Mike Pagani, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Smarsh.
“By using CellTrust SL2 with The Archiving Platform from Smarsh, highly regulated or litigious businesses can enjoy the productivity benefits that text messaging offers knowing that the inherent risk is being mitigated. Business communications can be preserved in a search-ready state and produced on-demand when needed, alongside all other electronic communications types in The Archiving Platform.”
CellTrust SL2 is unique in that it offers traceability, management and archiving for business communications—without infringing on personal SMS and voice. This is made possible with the assignment of a Mobile Business Number (MBN). Upon registration, CellTrust SL2 assigns an MBN to create a dual mobile persona—two numbers on one device—delivering two distinct phone lines, two contact lists and two SMS/MMS inboxes, to keep business and personal communications separate. This allows organizations to trace and archive business-only SMS/MMS and voice communications with clients outside of the organization, which is vital to eDiscovery and regulatory compliance, in response to the Dodd-Frank Act, GLBA, SOX, HIPAA, and requirements put into effect by FINRA, the SEC and U.S. Federal Courts.
CellTrust SL2 makes a fundamental change from device to user centricity, helping organizations take full advantage of enterprise BYOD. With its unique user-based, multi-device access, real-time analytics and expanded desktop access and user management—CellTrust SL2™ delivers the usability and productivity benefits of BYOD while allowing organizations to manage, trace and archive mobile voice and SMS in support of compliance.
CellTrust partners with a number of leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) and long-term archiving providers to support an integrated, compliant BYOD solution for mutual customers.
