In 2011, Mike Janke, former U.S. Navy SEAL and security specialist, approached Phil Zimmermann, cryptography legend (Internet Hall of Fame inductee; creator of PGP and ZRTP) about a partnership to create the world’s first communications network built for privacy. Jon Callas, creator of Apple's Whole Disk Encryption, joined as CTO and the founding team was complete. Their idea was to create an encrypted communications service with easy-to-use tools available to all who appreciate a little control over who has access to their conversations. Silent Circle has matured into the world's most trusted solution for mobile privacy serving individuals, businesses, and governments in over 130 countries with a truly revolutionary ecosystem of software, services, and devices.
SafeLogic is proud to provide FIPS 140 validated cryptographic libraries for use in the Silent Circle product line. Silent Circle's world class team and vision of security and privacy reflects the high standards that SafeLogic has evangelized since establishment. It is a strong technology and cultural fit for both companies.
