TORONTO, ON and NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2023 / Sekur Private Data Ltd. (CSE:SKUR)(OTCQX:SWISF)(FRA:GDT0) ('Sekur' or the 'Company'), a leading Swiss hosted secure and private communications platform, is pleased announce that it is preparing the launch its anticipated non-big tech, Swiss hosted privacy VPN solution, SekurVPN.
In the past year, Sekur has had a multitude of requests from its existing users base for the creation of a private non-big tech VPN solution. The Company has been working on this solution for some time now, and has aquired all the servers for the encryption processing and hosting of SekurVPN in its Swiss data centers. Sekur has already completed the Mac client and the iOS application, and is on track for completing SekurVPNs Android application early in February. SekurVPN is expected to launch globally by the first week of April 2023, at the latest, with its existing three versions, Mac, iOS and Android, with Windows system launch soon after.
The Company will first launch the website www.sekurvpn.com in the next few weeks, in order to take pre-registrations for SekurVPN. SekurVPN is planned to be priced at US$7/month/user and US$70/year/user for the service. However, a special launch price of US$28/year for the next 2 years will be offered to the first 5,000 people registering to the service. This represents a 60% to the yearly price, which already offers 2 months free usage.
SekurVPN is meant for privacy enthousiasts and users wanting to mask their IP address from hackers. An example would be users going to their e-banking or shopping online, using their emails, and wanting to have full privacy and protection from hackers hyjacking their location and signal. The service is not meant for streaming media such as on demand or e-gaming. The Company will guarantee proper speed high encryption for normal privacy usage and regular email and web surfing.
Alain Ghiai, CEO of Sekur Private Data said: 'We have listened to our customers and are very excited to announce the launch of SekurVPN for late March 2023. We have high hopes for the success of SekurVPN, due to its highly private nature, since it does not use any big tech computing or hosting and offers only Swiss IPs. Our prime directive is to provide private and secure communications for everyone, and, as we are not connected to any Big Tech platform, we offer a truly independent, private and secure means of communications without any data mining, through our proprietary technology and our secure servers based in Switzerland. We look forward to continuing to offer true data privacy to all individuals and their businesses and protect their intellectual property, and their privacy, from data miners and malicious hackers.'
Sekur, which includes SekurMessenger and SekurMail, is part of a bundle of email, messaging and file transfer into one application, includes the Company's latest SekurMail technology, which includes proprietary anti-phishing and privacy feature called SekurSend®. SekurSend® lets a user send an email to any other recipient, whether they have Sekur or not, in full privacy and security as the email never leaves Sekur's encrypted email servers based in Switzerland. The recipient can then click on the notification and reply in the same manner using SekurReply®, without the recipient having to register for a Sekur account. The sender can also decide to protect any email sent by adding a password to open it, a read-limit and a self-destruct timer as well. Sending an email with the SekurSend® feature allows the senders and recipients to add limitless size attachments to the emails without crowding the recipients' email box. This also eliminates BEC attacks for businesses and email phishing attacks. Additionally, SekurMail includes full control of email delivery, automatic data export for large Enterprises and an automatic Data Loss Prevention technology ('DLP') with real time continuous archiving.
Recent data breaches in messaging applications have created a certain urgency for businesses and data privacy advocates to protect their communications from cyber-attacks and identity theft via mobile and desktop devices.
SekurMessenger now comes with a proprietary feature and technology called 'Chat-By-Invites'. This feature allows a SekurMessenger user ('SM user') invite a non-SM user, or a group of non-SM users, to chat in a fully private and secure way, without the recipient ever having to register to SekurMessenger or download the app. At the end of the chat, the initiator of the conversation can remotely terminate the conversation and all traces of the conversation are deleted from all users, including the recipient. This unique feature is now fully deployed and functional on all iOS and Android devices and web platforms. The target sectors are numerous, including but not limited to real estate, legal, finance, insurance, medical, government, energy, manufacturing, trade and pharmaceutical sectors.
SekurMessenger also eliminates many of the privacy and security risks by not only not requiring a phone number, which would divulge a user's phone device ID, but also by not social engineering a user's phone or computer contact list and infecting the contacts by default as well, eliminating a huge loophole in security and privacy. SekurMessenger issues each user a username and a Sekur number. The Sekur number is the contact ID a user would disclose in order for other Sekur users to be added. The service comes with a self-destruct timer and other features as well, including Sekur's proprietary VirtualVaults and HeliX technologies with all data stored in Swiss hosted encrypted servers.
Sekur's Data privacy solutions are all hosted in Switzerland, protecting users' data from any outside data intrusion requests. In Switzerland, the right to privacy is guaranteed in article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution. The Federal Act on Data Protection ('FADP') of 19 June 1992 (in force since 1993) has set up a strict protection of privacy by prohibiting virtually any processing of personal data which is not expressly authorized by the data subjects. The protection is subject to the authority of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
Under Swiss federal law, it is a crime to publish information based on leaked 'secret official discussions.' In 2010 the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland found that IP addresses are personal information and that under Swiss privacy laws they may not be used to track Internet usage without the knowledge of the individuals involved.
