Vysk Communications Announces Encrypted Photo Gallery App

New encrypted photo gallery app protects videos and images from hackers, even on iCloud.

SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Vysk Communications announced its latest endeavor in the smartphone privacy world, the Vysk Private Gallery app. The Vysk Private Gallery app encrypts the photos and videos you want protected on your phone, as well as those you choose to store in the cloud.

With the Vysk Private Gallery app, users can transfer images and videos from their current photo gallery, or take photos using the built-in camera interface, and store them inside an encrypted, password-protected application. Users can organize photos into two separate galleries, each with a unique access PIN. A self-destruct function allows users to completely erase the entire contents of the galleries with the use of a special emergency PIN. Additional functionality includes sharing photos via social media channels, email, AirDrop and text message, without leaving the app.

The Private Gallery app is part of Vysk's new Privacy System. The System uses a combination of hardware and software to provide next-generation privacy and security. The Vysk Privacy Charging Case (EP1) starts with a hardware solution that locks down your front and back cameras with patented shutters that engage at the flick of a switch. Click them closed, and you are protected from someone capturing unauthorized photos or videos of you and your family. The software component includes the Vysk Private Gallery app and the Vysk Private Text app. The Private Text app is set to debut later this month while the photo app is scheduled for release by September 15.

The Vysk apps protect users from hackers by encrypting photos, videos, and text messages on your phone. Also, any data backed up to cloud will be safe because it is transferred as encrypted information, rather than a picture from your standard photo gallery. Even if a user's iCloud account were hacked, a cyber criminal would not be able to access the photos or videos stored within the app.

"The EP1 Privacy System was specifically designed to combat things like photo hacking," said Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. "This isn't just an issue for celebrities anymore. It has become a common tactic for cyber bullying, cyber stalkers, and worse." 

The Vysk Gallery app is available for free when you purchase an EP1 Privacy Case. The EP1 case, which also doubles your phone's battery life, retails for $119.99 and is available now in red, blue, gold, and black on Vysk.com 

The EP1 Privacy Case is available for iPhone® 5/5S. The Vysk Private Gallery app and Vysk Private Text app will be available for iOS version 7.0 and later.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality. Experts estimate that internet connected cars will grow to 152 million, while over 100 million internet connected wireless light bulbs and lamps will be operational by 2020.
