Alain Ghiai, CEO of the cybersecurity and internet privacy company Sekur Private Data Ltd. OTCQX: SWISF | CSE: SKUR | FRA: GDT0, was recently interviewed by Ana Berry on the business news show “New To The Street.” Ghiai spoke about how his data privacy company helps companies find private and secure messaging and communication solutions.
The government has been enforcing privacy regulations against certain companies that allowed messaging on non-secure messaging apps. Last year, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued fines totaling close to $1 billion to several banks for allowing their employees to use unauthorized services like private email and Whatsapp for sending banking information.
Security concerns also led the government to ban the use of Tiktok on all federal devices. This is driven by fears that user data collected on the app is shared with the Chinese government. Bans have also been introduced or planned by some state governments, as well as several public universities.
Data Safety And Privacy With SekurSekur actively helps companies satisfy government regulations as well as prioritize data privacy and security. Its suite of privacy solutions includes the SekurMail and SekurMessenger services for encrypted, secure communication. SekurMail is a military-grade, encrypted platform featuring a SekurSend/Reply function that allows users who don’t have Sekur to reply within the Sekur environment.
SekurMessenger provides users with a secure Short Messaging Service (SMS) platform that is available in 80 countries for its “Chat-by-Invite” feature, letting Sekur users message non-Sekur users in SekurMessenger simply by clicking on a link sent by SMS or email. SekurMessenger includes a self-delete feature, as well as an archiving feature, an essential option for financial institutions that are required to keep records of all e-communication for seven to 10 years. It also launched its own Virtual Private Network (VPN) service, SekurVPN, to address the large market need for a trustworthy, turnkey data security service.
These privacy solutions may be particularly attractive to companies looking to prioritize data security. Cyber attacks and hacks are increasingly common, and the cost of the damage from these attacks will have reached over $10 trillion by 2025. By locating its servers in Switzerland, Sekur can take advantage of the tough Swiss data privacy laws.
Ghiai told Berry that users who signed up with the code PRIVACY will get a 15% discount on their monthly or annual subscription to Sekur’s products. This offer is good for five years for uninterrupted subscriptions. Sekur customers who bundle multiple Sekur services will also get a discount on their purchases, and the company reports that this is a popular choice among its subscribers.
In a recent statement, Ghiai commented that “Our prime directive is to provide private and secure communications for everyone, and, as we are not connected to any Big Tech cloud platform, we offer a truly independent, private and secure means of communications without any data mining.”
