Vysk Communications Named as 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree

New York, New York (November 12, 2014) Vysk Communications (Vysk), a pioneer in the private secure communications industry, today announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for its QS1 Privacy Case.

Vysk engineered the QS1 case to keep even the most sophisticated parties from eavesdropping on voice calls. The QS1 embodies Vysk's belief that true privacy requires both hardware- and software-based solutions, because malware is capable of undermining software operating alone.

The QS1 case creates a secure and independent environment outside of a potentially corrupted smartphone by incorporating an audio encryption engine, as well as a complete audio system into a stylish, professional case. When activated, patented technology in the QS1 prevents the smartphone's native microphones from picking up useful sound information, while at the same time allowing the user to speak into the isolated QS1 microphones. Voice calls are thus encrypted safely outside of the smartphone before being routed over the Vysk Privacy Network, which ensures the privacy and anonymity of the encrypted calls. The QS1 case, compatible with the iPhone® 5/5s, will also provide protection for photos, videos, and text messages.

"It's an honor to be recognized by CES Innovation Awards as a cutting-edge technology product," said Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. "The QS1 is the ultimate solution to the growing privacy problem in the digital age."

The QS1 Privacy Case will be available in early 2015. More information can be found at, where Vysk's award-winning products are available for preorder. Vysk's EP1 Privacy Charging Case launched exclusively at select Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile specialty stores nationwide on November 2.

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Vysk's QS1 Privacy Case will be displayed at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities, and runs 4:30-7:30 PM November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, New York.

Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories. Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.
