  • Patent number: 10412215
    Abstract: A system tracks and archives communications between a mobile device and a telephone (which could be another mobile device) or an enterprise application software module. A gateway receives communications from and sends communications to a mobile software application installed on a mobile device. Communications can include text, multimedia voice and/or video information. When the mobile software application or enterprise application software module directs a communication to the telephone, the gateway determines whether to send the communication to the telephone via a copy of the mobile software application on the telephone or via a PBX system or a virtual number. Furthermore, the gateway sends a copy of the communication to an archiving system. To process the communication for archiving, the gateway can reformat the communication, create metadata associated with it, associate tags with it, encrypt it, compress it and/or transmit it.

At the server, it is determined that the virtual number is associated with the software module on the second mobile device. With the server, the message is sent to the software module on the second mobile device, and at the server, the message is logged. The virtual number can comprise a long code. The message can be a short messaging service (SMS) message, a voice communication or an email.

  • Patent number: 9572033
    Abstract: A system for establishing a registration for secure communication between a mobile device and a server includes a server configured to: determine the phone number of the mobile device from which the SMS or MMS message is originated; and verify the phone number of the mobile device originating the SMS or MMS message against a whitelist to authorize a registration between the mobile device and the server. The server can establish an encryption key between the mobile device and the server, which can used to provide or enhance encryption of a voice communication, such as a VoIP communication, made using the mobile device. The server can renew the encryption key based on one or more policies determined by an administrator. The server can be configured to verify a secure identification code that is input at the mobile device and which can be provided to a user of the mobile device before the mobile device is registered with the server.

  • Patent number: 8225380
    Abstract: Methods for authenticating access and proving positional awareness using mobile phones. Embodiments for authenticating access include receiving identification indicia from a person seeking access, sending a message to a person having authority for access, and receiving either a second message indicating that the person has taken an affirmative action to indicate authorization, or a password that was provided in the first message. Access may be computer access or physical access, as examples. Methods of providing positional awareness include obtaining or storing location coordinates, monitoring the location of a mobile phone, and providing an alarm, for example, through a second mobile phone. In a number of embodiments, location coordinates are automatically obtained from Internet websites.
