Silent Circle has launched its Silent Suite military-grade mobile encryption service in the UK, boasting the apps have already had success within the enterprise and government space.

The portfolio is currently available for £13 per month and includes the company's Silent Phone, Silent Message, Silent Text and Silent Eyes products.

Silent Phone and Message are currently available for iOS and aim to protect phone calls and messages being sent via the device.

The Phone service works by encrypting all voice and video calls to and from a mobile device.

Users can also determine when private messages can be deleted from the sender and recipient's route registries - thus removing its digital footprint.

The company has also announced plans to launch a new Silent Mail service. Silent Mail is an encrypted email service that runs on Silent Circle's custom built proprietary network.

When launched it will reportedly be compatible with with third party email clients including Outlook and Mac Mail.

Silent Circle has confirmed it will expand its mobile offering to Android in December and onto Windows Phone in 2013.

Despite primarily being designed as a consumer product, ex-Navy Seal operator turned chief executive and co-founder of Silent Circle, Mike Janke, claimed that the encryption services have proved a hit with business and government customers.

"We didn't see there being huge interest from enterprise, but before we knew it people were testing it and approved it and were using it," Janke told V3.
