Leading Israeli Security Experts Join the Board of Usecrypt, Forming a Mass-Used Encrypted Communication Technology


Company Continues to Rapidly Expand Across the Globe, Growing its User Base in 17 Countries

NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 02, 2018

Usecrypt, the world's most secure encrypted communication technology and European based privacy movement, which has recently announced its global expansion with the opening of its U.S. office in New York City and second European office in Brussels, Belgium, has signed a major partnership with top Israeli security experts.

Mr. Israel Levinson, ex-military security officer and consultant, who has a leading private security firm with offices in Israel, London, and the Unites States, together with Mr. Michael Ifargan, ex-lieutenant colonel of the IDF data security agency, who has over 25 years of experience in military data security, joined the Supervisory Board of Usecrypt in the capacity of non-executive members.

"Data theft, on a personal level and company level, is the major threat today. Information and personal data is being stolen and misused in an ever growing rate," said Mr. Levinson. "We found Usecrypt and were amazed with the practicalities of the system they built. Using our experience and Usecrypt technology, we are developing the most innovative and correct way in the world to securely communicate today."

Mr. Levinson has a long history and vast experience providing projects for large customers from different industries as well as personal dignitary protection and security. "This system completes the security needs of personal privacy and security," he added.

"We believe Usecrypt has the opportunity to be the next ‘Unicorn' with huge global potential, so we decided to join the project and also use our experience to help develop the most secure mass-used encrypted technology that exists today," said Mr. Ifargan. "Whether governmental or corporate, data is the main concern today."

According to HubSpot, messaging apps, such as WhatsApp and Signal, have more than 5 billion monthly users worldwide. Mobile users have been led to believe that their communication, both personal and business, has been secure and kept private, but recent events have uncovered a starkly different reality.

"Inviting the best Israeli experts to join our team expands our presence across the globe, and it enables Usecrypt to move at a more rapid pace of achieving its mission of creating a global society connected, and protected, by true privacy," said Jakub Kokoszka, co-founder of Usecrypt.

The company has experienced rapid user-base growth in 17 countries, and Usecrypt Messenger recently ranked as the top paid social networking app in Poland on Apple's App Store. Usecrypt Safe, the file encryption and transfer desktop product launched last year, was recently awarded "Best in Cloud 2018" by Computerworld.

Most recently, EY's EYnovation Polska, the acceleration program in Poland for the most innovative and fastest growing tech ventures, has partnered with Usecrypt Messenger. "Our EYnovation Team uses Usecrypt Messenger to communicate critical strategic, operational and compliance matters concerning our projects." – said Krzysztof Witkowski, Associate Partner at EY and Head of EYnovation.

Usecrypt, headquartered in Warsaw Poland, with offices in Brussels, Belgium, and New York City, is a global privacy movement offering fully secured and truly private communication through its desktop and mobile messenger applications, Usecrypt Safe and Usecrypt Messenger. Usecrypt uses a patented method of encrypting digital data called Hybrid Virtual Key Management (HVKM), in which one unique half of the user's encryption key is stored on his or her device, and the other half is stored on the Usecrypt server. In addition to HVKM, Usecrypt has additional layers of protection that ensure the highest level of security for its users. Unlike competitors, Usecrypt never shares nor stores user data, and ensures that only the user sees his or her personal messages and files. Usecrypt is committed to helping people around the globe make the choice to bring privacy back.
