    A foundation built on privacy

    Silent OS is an Android-based operating system, enhanced to address mobile privacy concerns facing enterprises today. Free of bloatware, hooks to carriers, and leaky data, Silent OS puts privacy in the hands of you and your enterprise, without compromising productivity.










    Spaces

    Spaces creates multiple, separate virtual phones on one device, enabling work life and personal life to stay securely compartmentalized. No data is shared between spaces.
    • Create up to four separate spaces
    that act like virtual phones
    • Keep your apps and data secure
    • Customize each space any way you like





    ENTERPRISE SPACES

    Enterprises spaces are set and controlled by the enterprise, not the end user, enabling user satisfaction while reinforcing enterprise security needs and policies.



    Security Center

    At the heart of Silent OS, Security Center puts privacy settings at the user’s fingertips.
    • Easily configure settings for individual spaces
    • Manage which apps live in each space
    • Fine tune individual app permissions so that the user decides the level of data access each app receives




    Apps designed with privacy in mind

    Blackphone comes preloaded with our own apps as well as third party apps that enable private, encrypted communication.




    SILENT PHONE

    Peer to peer encrypted audio, video calling,
    and secure messaging
    SMARTER WIFI

    Helps you avoid risks
    from insecure WiFi networks



    Best in class vulnerability management
    Silent OS has the world’s fastest vulnerability management. Critical vulnerabilities are patched within 72 hours of detection or reporting, and updates come directly from Silent Circle, with no carrier delays or waiting periods.




    Integrate with your current MDM

    Another let down is it's price, it's 750$ and yet it's features (aside from all the security apps) are minimal compared to the other phones at that price range.

    well not everybody has to worry about the security risk. those who worry but still wants to use android they have to pay premium. i think its a stupid price cause you can buy an iphone at that price.

    well yeah the price is very high. it costs the same as the new galaxy and the new iphone. but it's not meant to be a mainstream phone i guess. you can be relatively secure compared to others and it even has built in Tor for deep web browsing, but yeah personally not getting one.

    yeah I know but when they are charging 750$ for this, they should have made something with their own source codes, instead of using linux's open sources, which is prone to a lot of vulnerability.

    It has more to it than just their OS. and i don't think it's possible for a small company to get enough R&D money to make their own OS based of their own codes from the beginning. Linux still is better than most out there, but yeah i agree it's overpriced. and everything's prone to vulnerability, if someone wants to hack your phone they probably can. it's just that it'd take maybe an hour or so more for it to hack this one.

    is this security question or privacy? though they are pretty same.

    so they are building on android os and advertising "secuirty"? they never heard of stagefright? and thousands of other security holes in android which hackers are screaming about for years?

    Fyi..Though android uses Linux kernel but it's not the exact same kernel used in other Linux-based operating systems.

    I wasn't talking about kernel's, I am talking about the accessibility, Android is based on an open source os, so its easy for hackers to modify or get into it, where other OS'S like wp is closed source, that makes it hard for hackers to take advantage of its vulnerability's. Everything is hackable, just the hassle and time differs.
