Globex Data Launches New Email Migration Feature – Making It Seamless For Anyone To Migrate To Its Secure Platform Sekur.com
December 18, 2020 in Company news
TORONTO, ON and NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 1, 2020 / GlobeX Data Ltd. (OTCQB:SWISF)(CSE:SWIS) (“GlobeX” or the “Company”), the leader in Swiss hosted secure data management and secure communications, is pleased to report that it has launched a new feature as part of its SekurMail solution, which is included in both its Sekur and SekurSafe security solutions.
The new feature allows any subscriber to easily and seamlessly migrate their current email accounts hosted with any other provider outside of GlobeX Data, to their Swiss hosted SekurMail account included in all Sekur or SekurSafe secure data and communications solutions. The feature was specifically created for the Sekur application, which includes a secure email and secure instant messaging service. This ease of migration eliminates a crucial barrier to switch over to GlobeX’s secure email service and therefore makes Sekur much more attractive to consumers and business subscribers. Business clients can, at their choice, also choose to configure their company domain hosting directly to their email accounts hosted by GlobeX Data through any SekurSafe or Sekur accounts.
The feature comes at a time when GlobeX Data is preparing to launch its Sekur solution to all of SYNNEX Canada’s resellers in Q1 2021. Most businesses require to have their domain names and their pre-existing emails to be migrated to any new email service, and this often requires costly manual setup fees. The new automatic migration tool lets any business, without any specific IT background, migrate seamlessly all their email database to GlobeX’s platform.
Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “We are very happy to have completed this important feature as part of our secure email solution SekurMail, included in all our security solutions, as we have received a lot of inquiry and preliminary demand for it, and are happy to have the feature deployed as of today. This feature lets any consumer or business user, migrate any old email to our platform, reassuring all users that their old emails will still be available while hosted by GlobeX. We now anticipate demand for SekurSafe and especially Sekur to increase dramatically in the coming 12 months. Our global partners are all excited to have this feature included in our solutions now. This is just another testament to our commitment to excellence and our commitment to provide a high quality and unique secure communications solution to all our customers worldwide.”
Sekur is the Company’s Swiss hosted secure communications suite, which includes encrypted messaging and voice recording transfer with self-destruct timer, an encrypted email account and a secure file transfer solution. All data is secured using GlobeX’s proprietary encryption technology and is hosted exclusively in Switzerland for ultimate privacy.
Sekur 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 guarantees to eliminate 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.
One of the many Privacy and security features of Sekur is that the user does not register with their phone number, eliminating a huge loophole in security and privacy. Just recently, according to an article written by Lindsey O’Donnell and posted on the website threatpost.com on June 5 2020, it was disclosed that WhatsApp phone numbers and users were searchable on Google, creating a massive security and privacy breach. Earlier in the year, an article was written about a similar flaw affecting all businesses, NGOs, UN and non-profit organizations, where WhatsApp Group members were also compromised and searchable in a reverse engineering trick done on Google.
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.
Sekur 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. Sekur issues 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.
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.
