How it works
Babel BE is using strong cryptography technology and protocols. Each message is encrypted peer to peer and
stays encrypted even while stored on the device using symmetrical algorithm AES with randomly generated keys.
No Digital Certificates Needed
No need to pay for and maintain digital certificates. Secure administration, distribution and synchronization of
cryptographic keys on mobile devices is ensured by Babel server, which is connected to your company’s directory.
No 3rd party servers to compromise your security
Data that is temporarily or long-term stored on 3rd party servers are completely out of your control. Only Babel
Business Edition allows you to communicate within your environment with no 3rd party involvement.
Connection to company’s directory
Administrator does not need to create new accounts, those can be transferred and synchronized with company’s
directory. (AD, LDAP, ...).
Your Babel server maintains a database about users, specifically their contact information (phone numbers and
adresses for electronic communication). Babel servers also stores and synchronizes user public keys. The web
administration console allows you to manage Babel servers and enables you to react promptly to unusual situations
such as; a lost or stolen device.
Babel BE enables you to send encrypted attachments such as photos, documents, videos, etc. These attachments
are encrypted with the same level of security as a general message.
Each message is encrypted not only during the transmission but in the application sandbox as well. For decryption
of the message you need to input your PIN number into the application.
Mobile application for iOS and Android are available for download in the Appstore and
GooglePlay. Applications for Windows phone and Windows Desktop are also available.
Babel working for your enterprise security
How The Platform Works
Babel Business Edition provides encrypted communication and secure storage of sent and received messages as well as attached documents on mobile devices.
Babel Business Edition platform key components:
- Babel Messaging Server (BMS)
- Babel Attachment Server (BAS)
- Web administration console
- Babel client for iOS
- Babel client for Android
- Babel client for Windows Mobile (Q4 2014)
- Babel client for PC (Q4 2014)
Babel Messaging Server (BMS)
At the center of Babel Business Edition is the Babel Messaging Server or BMS. BMS maintains a database with user accounts, which includes contact information – phone numbers and email addresses,
securely storing user’s public keys and synchronizing them on mobile devices. BMS also contains server SSL certification, providing authentication certificates, and maintaining client’s licenses for mobile
devices. BMS provides data communication in between mobile devices, however, BMS does not store any of the private keys and does not take part in the encryption process. In the event that the
recipient is not online, BMS ensures the recipient will get a notification as soon as connection occurs.
All devices have to activate themselves in the beginning with a One Time Password (OTP). During the registration, BMS obtains a public key of the device and synchronizes this key with all other devices
which are already registered on the server. After this initial activation, mobile devices will synchronize and connect to the server automatically without any action required from the user.
BMS is integrated with the Babel Attachment Server (BAS), which provides a delivery mechanism of encrypted attachments.
Mobile devices and message encryption
Both iOS and Android applications are available for download in the Appstore and Googleplay. After the initial installation, user scans a QR code which he obtains from his / her administrator and using the
information in the QR code, the devices will register with the server. During the registration process, the device obtains a authentication and license certificate and synchronizes his / her contacts with the
public keys of all other users in the network.
WHY CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROVIDER MATTERS.
Highlighting why choosing Babel Business Edition makes a difference in your enterprise data security.
If you want control of your data, if you want to know where your data is then the choice becomes quite clear. There are a
number of applications for mobile communications. Common to these applications are they need a server on the provider
side. Therefore the user has no control over what is happening to your data. Most of the other providers have a non
transparent business model.
Finally there is the issue of support - most of the other providers will never talk to you ... Never.
Our focus is on providing our clients with the world’s number one security solution for mobile communications. By
implementing a non breakable encryption platform and creating an incredible user friendly interface.
