BOSTON: Silent Circle, a company that sells mobile phones and apps designed to thwart government surveillance, said it has raised $30 million in financing in a round led by Ross Perot Jr and private investment fund Cain Capital LLC.
The company sells apps for Apple Inc's iOS and devices using Google Inc's Android operating systems that encrypt phone calls and texts. It also offers secure video conferencing for machines running Microsoft Corp's Windows software.
In February it launched "Blackphone," a mobile phone loaded with a customized version of the Android operating system known as PrivateOS and loaded with a suite of security and privacy apps.
