ZURICH, Switzerland, June 5 (UPI) -- Swiss company Qnective is its mobile software solution to Indonesia's government and military for secure, mobile communications.

The solution is named Qtalk Defense, which provides for encrypted voice and data communications with standard smartphones on existing public networks.

The value of the contract and other details were not disclosed but the company said its system will be used by about 120,000 employees of government organizations.

"The geographical situation of Indonesia, a country with more than 17,000 islands, made it essential for the Indonesian government that the secure communications solution is using the existing GSM networks," Qnective said. "Like this, little additional customer costs for new hardware or infrastructure were generated. These challenges were mastered by the design and implementation of Qnective's mobile software solution."

Qtalk Defense is specifically designed for government offices, public organizations or military departments requiring protected communications when using mobile devices or desktop computers.

"Moreover, the customer can request project-specific adaptations like, for example, replacing the encryption algorithms or other security parameters in the product," Qnective said.
