SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- QSAlpha, developer of advanced digital security solutions for mobile device users, today announced the launch of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its new ultra-secure Quasar IV cipherphone. As the gateway to a new security ecosystem powered by Quatrix™ technology, the Quasar IV cipherphone lets mobile device users access and protect their entire digital world—phone calls, email, mobile apps, SMS, cloud storage and more—using Quatrix™, the world's most advanced trusted-authentication technology.

Quasar IV, an Android device, opens huge new possibilities in mobile security that far surpasses conventional forms of protection. Digital identity theft, particularly through mobile devices, is shockingly prevalent. In 2012 alone, Americans suffered over $20 billion in financial losses to identity thieves. Quasar IV helps to eliminate these losses by giving users exclusive access to QSAlpha's high-security ecosystem known as QuaWorks. Elements of the ecosystem include:

  • QuaStore, the world's most advanced trusted-authentication based application platform, featuring apps that are digitally signed by the original developers to ensure they are free from the widespread malware and viruses that disrupt mobile phone use.
  • QuaCloud storage, available to Quasar IV users, safeguarded by QSAlpha's revolutionary self-authenticated matrix technology.
  • Quatrix™, the proprietary encryption technology of the QuaWorks ecosystem. Quatrix™ generates a pair of public and private keys for each user from 16^16^4 three-dimensional matrices, certifying the user's unique identity and protecting the transmission of information. With 1077 public and private key pairs available, Quatrix can provide digital identities for the entire global cyberspace population.

"Anytime people exchange data through their smartphones, they take a risk. Unsecured mobile data and applications are the biggest dangers facing the digital world today," said Steve Chao, founder and CEO of QSAlpha. "Quasar IV and the Quatrix™ technology are capable of solving this massive problem, protecting users from identity thieves, intruders, even uninvited surveillance. We're confident that the Quasar IV cipherphone addresses the needs of the mass market for ultra-strong security, which is why we've initiated this crowdfunding campaign."

Authenticate Your Digital World
Through the apps in the QuaWorks ecosystem, Quasar IV users are able to make VoIP calls, as well as send/receive emails and text messages, using the revolutionary Quatrix™ trusted-authentication technology. Conventional smartphones authenticate data via public key infrastructure, which are stored online. No matter how many times a user changes passwords, thieves and other unauthorized entities can impersonate a user's identity if they gain control over the third party authentication server.

Quasar IV, by contrast, uses a seed public matrix stored on the user's phone to compute and authenticate both ends of any communication event. The seed public matrix functions as a mediator, verifying the two identities and ensuring privacy for texts, emails, file transmissions and voice calls.

"If at all possible, cracking just one private and public key combination would be extremely difficult," noted Chao. "This is how Quasar IV, Quatrix™ and QuaWorks differ from any mobile security solution in the market."

Access to QSAlpha's QuaWorks ecosystem of base security solutions will be free of charge to Quasar IV cipherphone users. The Quasar IV cipherphone and QuaWorks ecosystem are expected to debut in April, 2014.
