Protects your company's communication against eavesdropping and prevents misuse of personal data and trade secrets. Works on PC, Android, iOS, and BlackBerry.
The main objective in developing BABEL Business Edition was to secure businesses' mobile communications, the importance of which is indisputable in these times of frequent leaks and data mining.
With BABEL, you can securely send messages and documents from any device. Strong cryptography and end-to-end encryption protect your data both during transmission and after delivery. Communicate without fear your sensitive information will be disclosed.
What makes BABEL BE unique is the fact that its entire infrastructure, including the server component, is operated and administered by your company's administrator. There is no need to worry about data leaking on servers because the transmitted data is encrypted between transmission end points and you own the servers. The administrator can react on the run to such extraordinary situations as device theft or loss and personnel changes within the organization and block communications with the given device or user.
The BABEL apps for iOS and Android are available at no charge from the AppStore and GooglePlay. The application for Windows PCs can be installed using an MSI installation package.
Any message attachments are encrypted in the same manner as the message itself. You can therefore securely send documents containing private and business information to your employees' mobile devices and PCs.
Each message and all attachments are encrypted not only during transmission but also when saved by the sender or recipient within the BABEL app. To decrypt and display the message, it is sufficient to enter the password/PIN/fingerprint.
After the set time has expired, you can be sure that your sensitive message will be deleted from the recipient's device. BABEL displays delivery, nondelivery, and read receipts.
Your company's administrator does not need to create user accounts as these can be imported from your company's existing directory. It is possible to use authentication with Active Directory to register a new device via the user's website.
The BABEL server integrates with your company's existing apps (HR, CRM, DMS, etc.) to send encrypted messages and documents from these apps to devices with BABEL.
We subject BABEL's cryptographic design and security mechanisms to independent auditing. The solution's security is therefore guaranteed by reputable authorities in cryptography and security.
BABEL is a software product for secure business communication based on using a number of advanced cryptographic technologies and protocols. To reach the required security level, it is not sufficient merely to select tested algorithms and assemble them into a product. It is necessary to proceed on the basis of expert knowledge to properly design and implement the cryptography, ensure secure procedures are used, eliminate data leaks through side channels, and implement mechanisms to detect potential attacks. We reached out to Vlastimil Klíma with a request for him to inspect BABEL Business Edition's cryptographic design.
BABEL uses strong cryptography, verified protocols, and secure procedures to transmit and save messages. Trustica s.r.o. carried out security testing of the entire BABEL system's software implementation. The test covered in particular communication infrastructure, mobile and server application architecture, and functions protecting user data from third-party attacks.
The BABEL system utilizes the latest know-how from cryptography and correctly applies strong cryptographic techniques. I did not find any weak points or cryptographic mistakes during the cryptographic design inspection. Among the BABEL developers, I encountered efforts to apply the best existing tools and know-how. I would not be afraid to have my secrets transmitted through this system.

The application conforms to current requirements for data security and uses ciphers that are currently considered secure. The application as a whole can be declared to be secure according to the producer's description.
Do you need to protect your company's information, personal data, and trade secrets as well as secure communications with your colleagues, business partners, or clients? BABEL Business Edition is an enterprise platform for encrypted communications ready for immediate deployment. After its implementation into your company's current IT infrastructure, it will transform your phones and computers into secure work and communications tools.
Central administration of users, groups, and devices, import of company directories from LDAP/AD, and authentication using AD SSO.
Integration of the BABEL server with third party apps for sending encrypted messages and documents from any apps to devices with BABEL.
Users may use BABEL on multiple devices (e.g., mobiles, tablets, notebooks, and PCs). Encrypted messages sent from one device are synchronized on all user devices.
Clearly arranged user interface for administrators and online user self-service.
We ensure implementation, IT administrator training, customer support, and continuous development and improvement of the entire BABEL platform.
RNDr. Vlastimil Klíma graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague. His entire 30-year professional life has been dedicated to cryptology. Former employers include the government, the military, and private companies. He now works as a consultant. He helped found the field of side channel cryptanalysis in the Czech Republic. He has authored more than 300 papers and lectures and is known abroad for the fastest method of finding MD5 collisions and uncovering weaknesses in OpenPGP and SSL/TLS. He designed a new concept of hash functions and DN block ciphers (HDN) and was the coauthor and inventor of the fastest hash function (BMW) in the second round of the SHA-3 competition. He currently works as an authorized court expert in cybernetics in the IT sector.
In April and May 2015, I inspected the cryptographic design of the BABEL Business Edition system together with the OKsystem development team. The inspection covered the cryptographic techniques used in the system's server component and those on iOS and Android clients. The results are as follow:
The working meetings between BABEL developers and Dr. Klíma confirmed the correctness of BABEL's concept and design as well as the choice and implementation of cryptography. During the detailed cryptographic design inspection, we implemented additional security mechanisms which prevent sophisticated attacks on encrypted messages' integrity and delivery order and developed a user-friendly method for entering a strong password. Our cooperation with Dr. Klíma was professional and encouraging, and we will happily continue it during further BABEL development.
