Globex Data to Launch Its Sekur.com Secure Communications Solution and Its Sekursafe.com Document Management Solution in Colombia and Panama
February 2, 2021 in Company news
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 2, 2021 / GlobeX Data Ltd. (OTCQB:SWISF)(CSE:SWIS)(FRA:A2PN34) (“GlobeX” or the “Company”), the leader in Swiss hosted secure communications and secure data management, is pleased announce that it is in preparation to launch its Sekur secure communications solution and its SekurSafe secure document and password management solution, in the Republic of Colombia and the Republic of Panama.
The launch, in partnership with GlobeX’s Latin America cybersecurity distributor Micronet, is expected to take place in the early part of Q2 2021. Several final steps are being taken in order for everything to be ready for a full launch. Micronet is expected to start in Q2 2021, once all translation to GlobeX’s provisioning platform is done and once training of Micronet staff and key distributors is done. Micronet, headquartered in Spain, manages a network of close to 3000 resellers in 11 countries through Central and Latin America, and Spain.
Sekur, which includes SekurMessenger as part of a bundle of email, messaging and file transfer into one app solutions, 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 and in particular in the WhatsApp application have created a certain urgency for businesses and data privacy advocates to protect their communications form cyber-attacks and identity theft via mobile and desktop devices.
SekurMessenger 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 issue each user a username and a SM number. The SM number is the contact ID a user would disclose in order for other SM users to be added. The service comes with a self-destruct timer and other features as well, including GlobeX’s proprietary VirtualVaults and HeliX technologies with all data stored in Swiss hosted encrypted servers.
Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “We are excited to launch our secure solutions with Micronet, starting with Colombia and Panama. COVID-19 has delayed our launch and we are grateful to Micronet as they have demonstrated a serious effort to start the launch. Micronet has dedicated a staff of sales and cybersecurity experts in order to increase the success of our distribution throughout Micronet. Colombia and Panama are a great start and we look forward to years of continued growth in the Latin American continent with Micronet. As we are not connected, and never have been connected, to AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud platforms, commonly referred to as “Big Tech”, we can offer a truly independent, private and secure means of communications through secure messaging, secure voice record transfer, secure voice and video conferencing, and secure email through our proprietary technology and our secure servers based in Switzerland. We have put a lot of resources in order to translate our entire platform in Spanish language for the Sekur and SekurSafe solutions, as we plan to expand to several countries in Central and Latin America in the coming years. According to statista.com and other information sites, there are over 580 million people speaking Spanish in Latin America alone, and with security and privacy becoming a global concern, and the new WhatsApp rules to share all users’ data with Facebook, we have seen a surge in demand and inquiries for our secure and private communications solutions in particular.”
GlobeX Data will issue another release at the time of the launch, with full details on pricing of the various solutions for the Latin American market.
GlobeX’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.
