GlobeX Data Ltd. (SWISF): A Frontline Shield Against Data and Privacy Breaches
August 17, 2020 in Media & Press
The need to protect user information on commerce sites and apps is more important than ever. Data and privacy breaches are not only on the increase but firms struggle to detect, defend and respond to such breaches. Due to the recent outbreak, cybersecurity demand is increasing due to more remote work.
Recent data breaches, in messaging applications and in particular in the WhatsApp application have created a certain urgency for businesses to protect their communications form cyber-attacks and identity theft via mobile devices, has sparked investors interest in GlobeX Data Ltd. (OTCQB:SWISF) (CSE:SWIS), a leader in Swiss hosted cyber security and Internet privacy solutions for secure data management and secure communications.
The company has been selected and nominated by The Silicon Review in their 50 Best Companies To Watch in 2020. The article can be read by clicking on this link Silicon Review Article on GlobeX Data.
GlobeX Data Ltd. (OTCQB:SWISF) (CSE:SWIS) recently announced that it was ready to launch its Sekur encrypted email and messaging security solution in August 2020. GlobeX will launch Sekur.com and its applications on the iOS AppStore and Google Play marketplace for Android devices at the same time.
Demand for Sekur has been building up as consumers and businesses are looking at protecting their personal and business emails in light of increased BEC attacks and email phishing attacks.
Sekur is the Company’s Swiss hosted secure communications suite, which includes encrypted messaging with self-destruct timer powered by the Company’s and an encrypted email service. The Company plans to push the Sekur brand as a secure communications suite in addition to its existing DigitalSafe brand which is the Company’s document management and collaboration suite. Sekur will include 100GB of email and message storage and encrypted messaging with self-destruct timer. All data is hosted in Switzerland for ultimate privacy. Sekur will also come in other versions, Sekur Messenger for encrypted messaging only, Sekur Email which will only have encrypted email. Future releases of Sekur including voice and video encryption and video conferencing will be deployed in the next 12 months and will have different price points.
The service will include the Company’s proprietary and newly branded features called SekurSend(R) and SekurReply(R) anti-phishing encrypted email solution. SekurSend(R) 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(R), without the recipient having to purchase Sekur. This is also a guarantee to eliminate BEC attacks for businesses and email phishing attacks. Additionally, Sekur will include the Company’s latest technology, which include full control of email delivery, data export for SMB and 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.
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.
Last week, the company announced that it has signed its second distribution agreement in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The agreement was signed with Prime Technology Services Ltd. of Nassau, Bahamas.
This is the second distribution agreement signed by GlobeX in the Bahamas, as the Company is increasing its footprint in anticipation of its Sekur solution launch. Prime Technology Solutions was introduced to GlobeX by its Exclusive Master Distributor, Sebastian Alliance Group LLC.
