Dubai - MENA Herald:

InfoWatch Group will showcase its new Taiga smartphone at GITEX in Dubai as an integrated hardware/software solution with technology to prevent applications and the OS from collecting users’ data.

“Developed over 4 years of research by information security experts at InfoWatch and Taiga Systems, this new product represents the increase in demand for solutions to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) related threats and data leaks via mobile devices” said Kristina Tantsyura, General Manager of InfoWatch Gulf.

“With the rising risk of data leaks through consumer mobile devices, smartphone manufacturers, and software developers, the best way for corporations to reliably protect their information on a mobile device is the Taiga system that eliminates software backdoors and integrates DLP (Data Loss Prevention) Software.”

The smartphone runs on proprietary Android 6.0 firmware and provides complete protection against leakage of corporate data such as contacts, SMS, geodata, photos, videos, and documents stored and accessed on employee mobile devices by incorporating InfoWatch’s Traffic Monitor DLP system.
