With an estimated 2018 GDP of more than $700 Billion and population of almost 100 million people, Vietnam is an important economic and cultural hub that includes growing manufacturing, information technology and energy companies.
Telecommunications networks globally are vulnerable to monitoring and surveillance of phone calls and text messages by cyber criminals, hackers, and nation states. These parties commit corporate espionage, steal intellectual property and sensitive financial information, monitor calls and messages, and compromise privacy and security of people globally.
With ProCall, government employees, business people and consumers across Vietnam can protect mobile phone calls and chats from surveillance targeting government information or seeking unfair business advantages through corporate/business espionage.
ProCall delivers robust, end-to-end encryption for mobile calls and chats using technology developed by Bethesda, MD based KoolSpan, Inc.
