3i Infotech launches eMudhra SecMsg -- India’s first PKI based secure SMS service

MUMBAI, INDIA: 3i Infotech Consumer Services Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the global IT company 3i Infotech Ltd, today launched the eMudhra SecMsg, a revolutionary mobile solution designed to secure the SMS channel of communication and thereby taking mobile messaging beyond basics.

Messages sent using SecMsg are encrypted using a globally accepted, strong encryption method called PKI, to ensure that the messages are decrypted only by the intended user.

While SMS is one of the most preferred modes of communication, businesses and banks are very conservative in using the SMS channel, considering the related security and confidentiality issues. SecMsg provides a layer of security that banks and businesses can consider for sending and receiving very important and confidential messages through the SMS channel.

SecMsg is an easy-to-implement solution that takes only minutes to install and supports most mobile devices. Peer-to-peer secured messaging, communication of confidential and important information, and authentication of online transactions are a few usages of SecMsg. It is easy to integrate SecMsg with any application, may it be a core banking application or be a debit card management solution.

Indigenously built, the patent-pending solution SecMsg will provide banks, insurance companies, online broking companies and government agencies a secured communication platform for sending critical and confidential data to their customers using the existing SMS channels.

Ravi Jagannathan, MD & CEO, 3i Infotech Consumer Services Ltd. said: “We have recognized the prominence of the mobile based delivery channel, not just from a business perspective, but also from a socio-economic perspective of financial inclusion. With our latest offering of eMudhra SecMsg, we aim to protect financial and confidential information of consumers, by securing mobile messages and thereby prevent them from cyber crimes.”
