Russia firm unveils ‘surveillance-proof’ phone

For Russians who fear that someone may be eavesdropping on their phone conversations, leading IT entrepreneur Natalya Kaspersky says she has a solution.

At a business forum in Moscow, she presented “TaigaPhone”, a brand new smartphone, costing around 15,000 rubles ($260), created by InfoWatch Group, her software development company.

“Half of all data loss in Russia happens on mobile devices, we intend to fix that problem with the TaigaPhone,” company representative Grigoriy Vasilyev told investors at the forum.

InfoWatch says the device can guarantee the confidentiality of all TaigaPhone users, track the location of each device and prevent information leakage.

The TaigaPhone is entirely green to represent the Russian northern forest after which it is named, and has a five-inch touch screen. The phone has been created for the corporate market.
