Encryption Firm Silent Circle Sees Surge in Enterprise, Govt Clients

silent circleSilent Circle, which provides communications encryption tools and services for enterprises and government agencies, has witnessed a surge in its business since the company’s launch in October 2012, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Marjorie Censer writes the National Harbor, Md.-based technology firm did not specify how many clients it has, but said it increased the number of new subscribers by 400 percent.

Silent Circle’s platform utilizes a protocol designed by Zimmerman to keep all communications private and prevent access to unencrypted data or decryption software.

It intends to add new features to the platform and launch a mobile device next year.

Phil Zimmermann, developer of e-mail encryption program Pretty Good Privacy, founded the company in partnership with former Navy SEAL Mike Janke and former Apple executive Jon Callas.

Janke, Silent Circle’s CEO, left the service in 2000 to start a contracting business and spent a year searching for technology that would allow overseas calls by military personnel without being intercepted.

The Potomac Officers Club will host Janke on July 16 as part of its “Secure Mobility in the BYOD Workplace” Summit, an interactive event featuring industry, thought and government leaders discussing how to best secure the future of mobility in government.

Janke joins Casey Coleman, chief information officer of the General Services Administration, and Michael Krieger, the Army‘s deputy CIO, who will engage with the government contracting executive-only crowd, on current and future programs and efforts to securely leverage BYOD in executing agency missions.
