In Mobiu, we feel we have selected a best-of-breed product with a sophisticated level of security but at an affordable price, which is critical when spend analysis is as crucial as it is today.

About The Key Revolution
The Key Revolution was created by a team of ex-Vodafone employees to license and commercialise technology patented by Vodafone. This technology enables internet users to securely authenticate themselves and encrypt their data using the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) - familiar to billions of mobile phone users worldwide. The Key Revolution was licensed to use the technology in September 2007 in return for an early equity stake. The first product from The Key Revolution based on its SIMAssured technology platform is Mobiu, a portable office solution which uses a unique SIM enabled solution to access files and applications securely from any online PC running Windows XP or Vista.
