How WorkFone works
To maintain their cover, it is common for source-handling officers to use so-called ‘burner phones’: cash-bought, prepaid phones that are difficult to trace. Working with burner phones for each case and identity can be tricky: a phone can get lost, cases become entangled, a contact may become compromised or the officer’s cover is blown. Using multiple phones means multiplying the risks. WorkFone solves all these problems. ‘Our app enables source-handling officers to use one smartphone to safely manage all their professional identities; it’s simple, secure and always on, and ensures their personal identity remains confidential’, says Red Tulip Systems CMO and co-founder Josh Petras.

Why WorkFone is safe
WorkFone can be installed like any other app, but, importantly, WorkFone does not store any data (or keep any data ‘at rest’) on the mobile device itself. All data transmitted uses TLS v1.2 encryption (NSA Suite B) and is stored on Red Tulip Systems’ servers or on customer premises if required. Within WorkFone, identities are strictly separated. Each identity is assigned a non-sequential, random local phone number, so cover is protected.
