When there is no data plan, data coverage or wifi available, an application can still communicate securely via SSMS. The application can detect if there is no data connectivity and automatically switch to SSMS to communicate with a server.
You can download our sample Mobile Bank application for Android or iOS, and check how simple transactions such as a purchase or balance inquiry can be transmitted securely over SMS.
On Android devices SSMS communication is seamless, without asking the user to relay messages using the SMS application.
SSMS 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 SSMS, such as healthcare services, government institutions or military forces.
