Protegrity is a phrase coined from the word ‘professional’ and ‘integrity’ which stands for ‘professional staff with integrity.’ The company’s main brand will be the software and Smartphone called Mphone, the software will be used only in the company’s products. The Smartphone will be developed in an innovative way and they will make users life easier. The Brand will have a unique name but the name is heavily associated with the name of the company. The smartphones are branded as Mphones, Additional products will be introduced and will follow the same naming protocol starting with ‘M’.
