This partnership between OT, Samsung and ERCOM makes Cryptosmart SIM-powered easy to deploy by operators to secure mobile devices as well as data, voice and SMS communications.

The solution will bring both security and usability for customers and end-users:

  • Security through end-to-end encryption of voice, data and SMS communications, plus local data protection and possibility to remotely wipe the device.

Koza Altin Welcomes Court’s Rejection of Akin Ipek’s Share Purchase Agreement13.7.2018 15:58Pressemelding

A Turkish Court has found against businessman Akin Ipek this week – ruling that a share purchase agreement, which he had submitted as vital evidence in support of his case against the Turkish state, is null and void. The matter was brought to the Ankara Commercial Court in March 2017 by Koza Holding (parent company of Koza Altin) which, according to Mr Ipek’s share purchase agreement, purportedly transferred all of its shares to Ipek Investment Limited.

In the English ruling, Deputy Judge Richard Spearman QC declared the “authenticity” of the share purchase agreement as “open to very serious doubt”. The
