Following NSA PRISM Silent Circle Announces New Pricing

Silent Suite now available at 50 percent off for both business and personal use

WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 11, 2013 – Silent Circle, the leader in global encrypted communications services revolutionizing mobile data security for organizations and individuals alike, today at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit announced a new lower price point for the company's signature mobile apps and services. For the next 60 days, customers can purchase Silent Suite, which includes Silent Phone, Silent Text, Silent Eyes and Silent Mail, for $120 via prepaid annual subscription. Responding to massive demand from industry, government agencies and individuals, Silent Circle's limited-time pricing offers its easy-to-use-service with greater value and availability for customers as the company meets the distinct needs of businesses and consumers in this time of heighted awareness regarding the need for private communications.

"In light of the overwhelming demand for our services, particularly following the headlines of recent weeks, we have responded by adjusting our Silent Suite offering to cater to individuals and businesses needing highly secure and cost-effective mobile communications services," said Silent Circle CEO and Co-Founder, Mike Janke. "With a team comprised of the world's most noted crypto experts, including Phil Zimmermann, we have published all of Silent Circle's source code so customers are assured there are absolutely no backdoors or areas of compromised security within our service. With this lower pricing option, customers have greater availability for safeguarding their communications – whether for personal use or to protect hundreds of business devices."

"During our company's phenomenal growth over the past eight months, our steady focus has been to deliver a simple, easy to use and secure service as required by all types of customers," added Spencer Snedecor, Silent Circle's Chief Revenue Officer. "This new pricing will enable users to take a proactive stance in ensuring their own privacy in light of the latest wave of concerns. This includes personal users who simply desire private and secure communications, as well as business and government users with complex mobile device demands who need to ensure employees have a full suite of encrypted apps for secure communications and collaboration no matter where they are in the world. Silent Circle stands alone as uniquely able to meet all of these customers' demands."

In addition to the new pricing for the Silent Suite offering, Silent Circle's optional Out-Circle Access service is now priced at $24 per month. This enables Silent Phone subscribers to place and receive calls "outside the circle" from wherever they are in the world to or from conventional phone numbers*
