GOTrust Technology Rolls Out KingCall VoIP Encryption App

GOTrust Technology has introduced the “KingCall” comprehensive VoIP encryption application that
uses a very special microSD (SDencrypter) containing a high-performance

GO-Trust provides embedded hardware chip security and applications in microSD smart card
devices that support high-speed communication.
