Diversinet's New MobiSecure(R) SMS Provides Healthcare Organizations With Secure And Protected SMS Communications

TORONTO, March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Healthcare organizations and providers can now exchange sensitive information with customers over mobile devices within a secure and trusted environment using MobiSecure® SMS, a new product introduced today by Diversinet Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: DVNTF; TSX Venture: DIV).

The company is a leading innovator in providing connected and protected healthcare solutions for patients, healthcare providers and payers.

Diversinet, which also today announced plans to expand its focus on secure mobile healthcare, developed MobiSecure SMS to address secure messaging needs within the healthcare industry.

"MobiSecure SMS leverages the popularity and reach of text messaging while meeting security and privacy requirements of healthcare providers, payers and patients," said Albert Wahbe, Diversinet's chairman and CEO. "Using state-of-the-art strong authentication and encryption technology and supporting all major mobile platforms, our solution provides users peace of mind while using their existing mobile devices."

Diversinet's secure gateway for MobiSecure SMS provides delivery and read-receipt confirmation message status to users, offering assurance that messages have been successfully received by the intended recipient.

Key to MobiSecure SMS is the mobile handset client, a lightweight application that secures communication via any wireless mobile device using the existing SMS infrastructure capability from the mobile operator or service provider. Encryption and strong authentication provide security for both one- and two-way messages meeting regulatory and privacy requirements. A remote access wipe capability enables users to erase sensitive data in the event a mobile device is lost or stolen.  

MobiSecure SMS is compatible with global SMS aggregators and modems to ensure that MobiSecure SMS messages are delivered to end users, regardless of handset, carrier, or country specifications. Additional benefits include:

  • Convenient over-the-air provisioning of lightweight mobile applications
  • Unique authentication using one-time passwords
  • PIN protection and idle time auto lock
  • Long-message delivery, allowing up to 1,400 characters per message
  • Embedded active links within the client for access to third-party Web sites
  • Delivery and read confirmation for sent and received messages
  • Easy integration with existing customer applications

MobiSecure SMS, currently available for trial and pilot deployments, operates on multiple mobile device platforms, including Java™ phones (J2ME), BlackBerry™, MS Windows Mobile® for Pocket PC, BREW®, iPhone™, and Android™.
