When there is no Internet available, any mobile application can still communicate securely via Secure SMS. The application detects if there is no connectivity and automatically switches to Secure SMS to communicate with a cloud server. This functionality is specially valuable in developing countries, where a majority of users already have a smartphone but mobile data plans are very expensive.
Secure SMS acts as a secure alternate data network for mobile applications. Usage is not limited to financial services. Other organizations with critical connectivity and security requirements can benefit from Secure SMS, such as healthcare services, government institutions or military forces.
