The application Zangi created by the Armenian programmers may compete with global leaders and even exceed them in terms of personal data protection. Zangi enables to make video and audio calls, exchange interactive messages, photos and videos. Therefore, ensuring data security is of key importance.
The founder and general manager of the company, Vahram Martirosyan, presented their achievements in the field of security to PanARMENIAN.Net According to him, the app provides the users with several levels of security. First, the application data is stored in the phone only, and the company servers hold no other information.
“Our servers, of course, have specially designed layers of protection. But even if they are hacked, no data can be leaked. The data either passes directly from servers without being stored, or, in about 80% of cases, the mobile Internet IPs are connected directly, without even entering the server,” the team further explained.
The second level of security deals with the process of account registration, therefore aims to exclude the possibility of hacking any account. A competitor to Zangi, Viber uses SMS identification, if the user tries to access their account from another phone. In case of Zangi, the user is protected by a password, as the pin code sent through a message consists of four numbers, which makes it easier to hack the account.
“The third level of protection excludes the possibility of hacking data on the Internet. Zangi applies a special 2048 bit RSA-algorithm, while the flow of bits of information being transferred from one point to another, is tangled by another algorithm. Even of the flow is hacked halfway, it will be impossible to decode the mass of bits,” Zangi team added.
They also mentioned that the app does not depend on a single country or area, and there are servers in Armenia, the Netherlands, Russia, the United States: it is a whole cluster system. If a country decides to block the application, no problems will arise, since it will automatically be served by the nearest servers. The company is registered in Singapore, whose legislation also provides a high level of protection.
