Twitter Buys Android Security Specialist Whisper System

Whisper Systems blog confirms that Twitter has purchased cybersecurity firm Whisper Systems, which is best known for its antivirus software for Google’s Android mobile operating system. The company, the brainchild of security expert Moxie Marlinspike, has previously released software such as WhisperMonitor, an Android firewall which can be used to block specific outgoing connections. The company's portfolio also includes FlashBack, RedPhone and TextSecure for encrypting backups, phone calls and text messages.

In the Official Statement Whisper System Said:- 
"We started Whisper Systems with the goal of improving security and privacy for mobile devices. We were attracted to this not only because we saw it as an opportunity to reinvent the security solutions that never really worked in the PC environment to begin with, but also because the stakes are much higher — due to the nature of mobile devices themselves — and we didn’t like the way that things were looking.
We ended up tackling the full stack — all the way from application-level solutions at the top of the stack, down through a hardened version of Android, to kernel modifications at the bottom of the stack. Along the way we learned a lot, and developed products that we’re proud of.
Now that we’re joining Twitter, we’re looking forward to bringing our technology and our expertise into Twitter’s products and services."
