HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - Absio Corporation (Absio), a cybersecurity and data control software development company, announced today that it has released a private digital communications application called Absio Dispatch.
In the current age of identity theft and corporate data mining for profit, it is becoming harder and harder for individuals to retain an expectation of privacy and control. Likewise, organizations constantly deal with both outsider and insider data threats. In a competitive market, it is vital for organizations to be able to maintain confidentiality and control of their business communications.
Absio Dispatch is the first truly confidential alternative to email, providing secure digital delivery of confidential messages and attachments. The application looks and feels like email, but unlike email or email plug-ins, it allows users to send, receive and store communications in a continuously encrypted format. Absio Dispatch automatically encrypts every message and attachment individually, and keeps them encrypted on users' and their recipients' computers, tablets, and phones. Only designated contacts can access and read each message.
Absio Dispatch also gives users the power to control with whom they are communicating. Absio users choose whom to accept into their trusted contact network, and only their approved contacts can send messages to them. This saves valuable time by not filtering through spam messages or unwanted emails. Each user can choose to add or remove contacts at any time.
"How do you know a conversation is private? You know who you are talking to and you know others can't eavesdrop. Absio Dispatch provides private communications solely between you and your trusted contacts. We cannot enable anybody, including ourselves, to read your digital communications," said Dan Kruger, Founder and CEO of Absio Corporation. "We cannot give anyone access to information that we do not have. At Absio, you are our customer. You are not our product."
Unlike other secure email providers, Absio does not have any centralized access to passwords, encryption keys or metadata related to its users' digital communications. Each message and attachment is individually encrypted with a different key on the user's device before it is sent over an internet connection to the Absio servers. Absio does not have access to its customers' encryption keys, and does not have an alternate decryption key. This means that Absio does not have the ability to decrypt messages or attachments -- not even a subject line.
"Many people think emails are private, but the reality is that your email is continually read and analyzed. This is one of the ways you receive targeted ads. Your information is often sold when you think you're communicating privately. Absio Corporation was formed to deliver technologies that ordinary people can use to gain control of their digital world," adds Dan Kruger.
Absio Dispatch is available as a subscription service for $17.95 per year per Absio identity (ID). A single Absio ID can be used on multiple devices. The software is currently available for Windows®. An Android™ application will be available in April 2014.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
