Moving ahead on its expansion of global distribution strategy, Blackphone, a smartphone that enables customer privacy on priority, has appointed ‘Big On Telecom’ to distribute its smartphone in the Middle East.
As per the blog post by Derek Roga, EVP Sales, Blackphone, “We’re continuing to enroll global and regional carrier partners as well as global distribution partners with mature supply chain infrastructures. As we launch Blackphone with carriers in Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Asia, supporting these launches the distribution supply chain is vital to our success. One such recent distribution partner to join the Blackphone ecosystem is Big On Telecom, based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Big On Telecom has a significant distribution footprint in the Middle East and Africa, they’ve been successful in launching telecommunication products and services throughout the region and globally as well,” he added.
While discussing the value proposition of Blackphone, there are many market conditions that resonated with the team at Big On Telecom; namely, there is a growing demand due to awareness in the region to protect the privacy of both individuals and enterprises, continuous media coverage of hacking scandals and the on going infringement of one’s online privacy via apps on smart phones – most of this occurs unwittingly – led them to realizing that business, and even social value that Blackphone represents is quite compelling.
Blackphone, powered by a security-oriented Android™ build named PrivatOS, is a carrier- and vendor-independent smartphone giving individuals and organizations the ability to make and receive secure phone calls, exchange secure texts, transfer and store files, and video chat without compromising user privacy on the device.
Blackphone uses encryption technologies already proven in government and enterprise accounts around the world. Blackphone’s core applications combine world-leading commercial security tools with the transparency necessary to know which risks you can take and which you should avoid.
