Connect in Private let us know that they have launched a new app that gives you what they call “Highly Secure BlackBerry Email and Browsing” application that is independent from RIM’s network. This is an interesting development because BES hosting or internal servers offers way more security than Connect In Private but the concept is interesting. Connect in Private’s BlackBerry app essentially connects you to their servers offering you access that they claim is impenetrable and untraceable for privacy from monitoring by certain intelligence agencies.
Connect in Private is also pitching their service as a backup to RIM’s service when RIM has outages since it does not rely on the RIM NOC. You can check out all the details or purchase the service on their website. Let us know if you give it a spin!
Here is their announcement:
At ConnectInPrivate.com we believe in your inalienable right to privacy.
Connect in Private Launches Highly Secure BlackBerry Email and Browsing Application Completely Independent from the RIM Network
Connect In Private Corp. (CIP), developer of the world’s most comprehensive suite of secure browsing, secure email and internet privacy tools today announced its new secure email and browsing application for BlackBerry smartphones.
Available for download from the CIP Web site (www.connectinprivate.com), this app gives BlackBerry users an email account and a Web browser that accesses the Internet from behind CIP’s IP addresses, ensuring impenetrable, untraceable transactions when the utmost in privacy is required.
An added benefit to the application is that it runs outside the RIM BlackBerry network, effectively providing a back-up connection in the event of RIM network outages. Connect In Private Corp. CEO Bill Montgomery points out “A company that deploys our app for all its BlackBerry users can continue operating during RIM network downtime.” Montgomery added “Every business which relies on BlackBerry and has a mobile workforce relies on secure, reliable communications and due to the recent four day RIM service outage in October most businesses are now acutely aware of their exposure to that risk.”
Another key benefit to this BlackBerry application is that when the user closes the app no evidence of their private email or surfing remains on the smartphone other than saved attachments; no email messages are stored on the device. Because the user’s most private transactions are untraceable and are instead stored securely in the cloud, no private data is compromised if a BlackBerry smartphone is lost, stolen or seized.
This application functions on BlackBerry OS 5, OS 6, and OS 7 and has been translated to twenty-six (26) languages.
