Mobile World Congress 2014 - Yota Devices and Cellrox Announce Partnership to Provide Dual Work-Personal Phone Functionality to YotaPhone



Yota Devices, developer of high tech consumer LTE devices, and Cellrox, a leader in multi-persona solutions for mobile devices, announced today at Mobile World Congress a partnership agreement to provide Cellrox’s multi-persona technology on the dual-screen YotaPhone. With this technology, YotaPhone will provide functionality, privacy and security for both corporate and personal use.

Cellrox’s patented solution creates an impenetrable virtual wall between a phone’s personal applications and its corporate applications and data. This virtual wall allows users to share a single mobile device for both corporate and personal use without compromising security, performance or user experience.

“Cellrox’s multi-persona technology perfectly matches YotaPhone’s philosophy — that smartphones should provide us with easy and continuous access to information we need and want, whether we are at work, home or play,” said Vlad Martynov, CEO, Yota Devices. “Thanks to Cellrox’s technology, YotaPhone will be the one perfect device for both your work and personal lives.”

Cellrox’s solution will be leveraged to provide multi-persona profiles on YotaPhone’s dual-screen, always-on phone. This technology is being demonstrated on YotaPhones at Mobile World Congress at Yota Devices’ stand, 1D30.

“Cellrox and Yota Devices share many of the same business values and ideas about the role of technology in people’s lives. This partnership will demonstrate how one device can serve your private, corporate and other personas requirements while maintaining device-native behavior and performance,” said Omer Eiferman, CEO, Cellrox. Cellrox will present its solutions for smartphones and tablets at Mobile World Congress, hall 2, stand 2G50 (IMA Pavilion).
