For enterprises, content providers, and carriers, security is no longer an option. It is a necessity. They require mobile handsets that support high-level security functionality, including secure messaging, secure voice over Internet Protocol, and digital rights management. In this connection, this article examines how Certicom Corp. responded to solve this problem. The company unveiled its Certicom Security Architecture for Mobility, a cross-platform security solution that enables mobile-handset manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively embed security across multiple families and generations of devices. The architecture is ideal for use in mobile devices constrained by memory, processing power, and bandwidth.
