The market for secure communications is expanding as businesses become ever more vulnerable to cyber threats such as hacking, phishing, and malware attacks. Recent data breaches in messaging applications have made it urgent to protect business communications from such attacks and identity theft via mobile and desktop devices.
As the number of email hacks grows, the most typical method, called a business email compromise (BEC), is particularly widespread, with almost 20,000 BECs reported to the FBI in 2021. In fact, 90% of hacks are done through email. It is estimated that costs associated with cyberattack damage will have risen to $10.5 trillion by 2025, a 300% increase from 2015.
Demand for VPNs as Security Tools is on the Rise
Due to the rising levels of such threats, the demand for VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, as a crucial secure communications tool is growing. A VPN creates a private web browsing session, or a secure tunnel, between a user’s computer and the VPN server, which hides his or her online activity and location.
VPN security enables users to protect their online privacy and prevent their internet service provider from tracking their browsing activity. It can protect IP addresses and encrypt internet history. According to a Forbes study, 66% of businesses use a VPN to help protect personal data, 80% use a VPN for increased security, and 33% use a VPN to mask their internet activity. VPNs are increasingly being used to prevent eavesdropping by government agencies.
SWISF Tools Help Businesses Handle Privacy and Security Risks
Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTC: SWISF) (CSE:SKUR) is a company that provides a Swiss-hosted secure and private communications platform along with secure cloud data storage, secure file sharing, and secure electronic communications.
The company helps businesses make their communications, such as email and messaging, more secure. SWISF’s SekurMail email solution helps address security threats by encrypting a user's sensitive information and minimizing the potential for email hacking. SekurMail operates in tandem with SekurSend and SekurReply solutions that protect both senders and receivers, even when the receiver is not a Sekur client. 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.
SWISF also provides SekurVPN and the private messaging service SekurMessenger with a unique Chat-by-Invite privacy function, which allows a SekurMessenger user to invite via email or SMS a non-SM user to chat in a fully private and secure way without the recipient ever having to register with 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. The company offers a bundled Sekur plan, which includes SekurMessenger and SekurMail, as a bundle of email, messaging, and file transfer in one application.
On August 2, SWISF announced it had signed a distribution agreement with the Kingdom of Morocco for the supply of its Sekur suite of privacy communications solutions. It signed a reseller agreement with Digital Smart Solution, a Moroccan IT services consulting company based in Casablanca, which plans to focus on telecom operators and the banking industry to distribute SekurMessenger and other solutions among enterprises. DSS will approach the 1st and 3rd largest Telecom operators in Morocco, as well as several large banking groups and some government organizations.
Proprietary Hosting Infrastructure and Anonymity of Users Make Sekur's Offering Unique
Unlike most other VPN and secure communications providers, Sekur uses its own proprietary infrastructure and does not use any Hyperscaler or Big Tech hosting providers. The company is not connected to any Big Tech cloud platform and instead offers a truly independent, private, and secure means of communication without any data mining via its proprietary technology and secure servers based in Switzerland.
It offers customers Swiss IPs only, and this guarantees that it is using only SekurVPN's own servers and routing. SekurVPN never monitors users' activity and never shares any data with third-party service providers. With SekurVPN, users do not register their phone number on the app or the web, rendering them invisible to hackers or snoopers.
In addition, the company’s VPN solution uses the highest encryption industry standards combined with its proprietary HeliX technology for added security. Encryption keys are not stored on devices and are unique for every connection. Users' passwords, confidential data, and Internet browsing stay encrypted.
