San Antonio Based Vysk Communications to Continue Partnership with Notre Dame Football
(Notre Dame, IN) - Today, the University of Notre Dame football program and Vysk Communications, the market leader in mobile communications security, announced its continued partnership for the 2015 Irish football season. Vysk Communications will be the official coach's headset sponsor. Irish head coach Brian Kelly and his coaching staff started wearing the headsets Saturday (Sept. 5) when Notre Dame took on the University of Texas at Notre Dame Stadium to open the 2015 season.
"We're pleased to continue our partnership with Vysk Communications, a company that provides privacy solutions that are innovative and intuitive," said Jim Fraleigh, University of Notre Dame deputy athletics director. "Like the tradition that is Notre Dame football, Vysk Communications embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define success, and we are excited to be working with them."
Vysk Communications focuses on mobile security and privacy solutions for consumers and businesses. The flagship Vysk QS1 System has a dedicated encryption processor that provides private encrypted voice communication, a jamming system for all microphones, two mechanical camera shutters and a dedicated 3.5 mm jack for secure hands-free calling via wired headset. Encryption takes place in hardware at the source, not in software, and is made even more secure with the Vysk Privacy Network.
"Whether on the field or off the field, Vysk Communications remains committed to delivering an evolutionary mobile security solution that fits seamlessly into the lives of smartphone users," said Victor Cocchia, CEO and Co-founder of Vysk Communications. "At Vysk Communications, it is our mission to guard both your mobile device as well as the personal information stored on your mobile device."

The University of Notre Dame sponsors 26 varsity athletics programs (13 men's, 13 women's), dating back to 1887 when the Irish played their first football game. Notre Dame won its 30th overall national championship when the Irish claimed the 2013 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship following previous titles in football (11 consensus), fencing (three men, one women, four combined), men's basketball (two Helms Foundation), women's soccer (three), men's tennis (two), plus one each in women's basketball, men's golf and men's cross country. Notre Dame remains an independent in football, but most other Irish sports in 2013-14 began competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
