Default Ex-NSA guru builds $4m encrypted email biz

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/01...ivacy_startup/

Quote:
A security startup founded by a former NSA bod has launched an encrypted email and privacy service, aimed initially at ordinary folks.

The ongoing revelations of PRISM and other US-led internet dragnets, fueled by leaks from whistleblower Edward Snowden, may render the premise of upstart Virtru laughable. However, that would be unfair to Virtru, which is trying to make encryption and decryption of email, plus the revocation of messages and other privacy controls, easy to use.
