Orange Embeds Password Manager

Orange is launching the Dive 70 smartphone in Europe, bringing security to the fore with an embedded password and file security vault.

Launched first in France before rolling out in Slovakia and Romania and then to other European markets, the Dive 70 is the first fruit of Orange’s partnership with Keeper Security. Keeper’s secure password and digital vault manager is pre-loaded and fully-integrated, and allows users to securely save and fill passwords in their mobile apps and browsers, with the option of upgrading to Keeper’s premium offering. It uses 256-bit AES encryption and a zero-knowledge architecture.

Going forward, more devices under the Orange own-brand smartphone range will feature Keeper, the companies said.

"We are thrilled to provide Orange customers with the best technology to manage passwords and protect their most sensitive and personal information on their mobile devices," said Keeper Security CEO and co-founder Darren Guccione. "Orange is recognized as a leading mobile brand and innovator in delivering great value to its customers—we are honored to be an integral part of Orange's cybersecurity initiatives."

Orange has been steadily beefing up its mobile security portfolio to accommodate the rise in mobile cloud services—many of which are the conduit to information-stealing and network compromise. Last year it launched Mobile Connect, an authentication solution designed to enable customers to use their mobile phones as keys to securely log on to any digital service, regardless of the device or network connection used. The solution is based on a platform that uses the SIM card to validate entry into secure digital services.
