Evgeny Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, announced at the Army-2022 forum that Kaspersky Lab is finalizing the functionality for its hack-proof mobile phone to connect with critical infrastructure.
“We created everything from scratch so it is still possible to complete it. The camera doesn’t work. It can, but it takes some time. Performance is not the only thing that needs to be improved. We are working on a variety of technical issues. “I don’t know what to do when we show it and tell it’s ready,” Kaspersky stated.
He said that the device would be a mix of a regular smartphone or a push-button telephone. We don’t consider it to be a replacement for regular smartphones. This is still more useful for managing critical infrastructure. Modern technology demands that infrastructure can be managed remotely. An unhackable device will be required. We are creating a device with very limited functionality. “There will not be an App Store and there won’t be chips like the ones that are popular on smartphones. But it will have a safe controllable conditional turbine.” Kaspersky said.
Kaspersky first announced in December 2020 that it would be creating smartphones under its brand to protect hackers. It was then assumed that they would arrive in 2021.
