$SWISF $SKUR.C Sekur Private Data Ltd. Launches SekurRelay Enterprise Email Solution for C-Level Executives and High-Level Employees, Eliminating Roadblock to Mass Adoption of Sekur by Enterprises and Governments

Protects senior employees and government officials against Business Email Compromise ("BEC"
Toronto, Ontario, and New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - November 15, 2023) - Sekur Private Data Ltd. (CSE: SKUR) (OTCQB: SWISF) (FSE: GDT0) ("Sekur" or the "Company"
, a leading Swiss hosted secure and private communications platform, is pleased to announce that it has launched its SekurRelay Enterprise Email Solution, allowing corporate executives and management to "split" their company email domain in two, benefiting from SekurMail's SekurSend/SekurReply feature and other Swiss-hosted privacy and security solutions SekurMail offers, without having to migrate the entire company employees, eliminating a huge roadblock to mass adoption of SekurMail by large corporations and government agencies.
SekurRelay lets a company employee easily migrate their existing business email to Sekur's privacy and security email platform, and "split" from the company's existing email hosting provider seamlessly, while maintaining the same business email domain as the rest of the employees. This eliminates the need for enterprise IT departments to migrate their entire staff to Sekur, to have the same domain email address. SekurRelay lets company staff, as an example, use their existing provider and email @company.com, while having their executives or managers use SekurMail, keeping their existing email address @company.com. This "Inbound Relay" solves a large problem, as many larger enterprises have been hesitant to migrate thousands of employee emails due to the cumbersome and costly nature of doing so. With SekurRelay, companies of all sizes can protect C-level and management level emails from Business Email Compromise ("BEC"
attacks, while letting the rest of the employees stay in their existing email hosting providers. At the same time, all employee emails will be "filtered" through SekurRelay, and benefit from Sekur's malware detection and spam filter, giving an extra advantage for all employees, whether they use SekurRelay or not, while only SekurRelay accounts holders will be hosted and have their emails delivered by Sekur.
Businesses, enterprises and some government level upper-level employees and executives have been looking for a way to use Sekur's privacy and security tools without having to migrate the entire company to Sekur's email platform, due to costs associated with migration of thousands of emails, as well as due to user interface habits from their employees and the learning curve to use a web based and app based privacy email platform such as Sekur, since the goal is to get away from the main email platform providers that are being compromised with BEC attacks. Sekur is now able to eliminate these roadblocks and offer true protection against data mining, email phishing and BEC attacks to anyone subscribing to a business or enterprise email account, without having to migrate the entire company.
The feature is offered at an additional cost of US$200/month per email domain, and an additional US$10/month per email upgraded to the SekurRelay version for business account users. Each business email with the SekurRelay add-on will cost a total of US$20/month, a negligeable cost to businesses, considering the benefits SekurMail offers and the 100GB storage offered per email account. For the enterprise accounts, to be launched in December 2023, there is the US$200/month per email domain add-on, however, SekurRelay comes automatically with all email accounts at a slightly lower price per user, since enterprise accounts have a minimum of 50 users per account. SekurMail offers a unique SekurSend/SekurReply feature, allowing Sekur users to send emails to any non Sekur users in full privacy and security, with unlimited attachments capability, protecting the email from BEC attacks. In 2021 alone there were 20,000 BEC attacks reported to the FBI in the USA.
Sekur plans to offer SekurRelay globally to its telecom partners, such as America Movil in LAtin America, and other partners that have just signed on in the Middle East region, which has seen a major conflict break out and cyber vigilance is even more required. This new solution will make sales to businesses of larger sizes, enterprises and government organizations easier, as it does not disrupt their existing IT infrastructure and planning and has no migration cost associated with it.
Alain Ghiai, CEO of Sekur Private Data, said: "We are excited to provide SekurRelay to our customers as it provides protection from BEC attacks to C-level executives and managers who traditionally send highly sensitive emails inside and outside of their organizations. We have had many instances where a company wanted to keep their existing email provider for convenience for most of their employees, but wanted to have their C levels use Sekur, while keeping the same company or government domain email. This feature cannot come soon enough, as we read constantly about banks, large organizations, law enforcement agencies and governments being compromised in their email. Fortunately, we can offer the only Swiss-hosted, proprietary, private and secure communications platform that does not rely on big tech infrastructure, open-source coding or data mining, therefore reducing exponentially the risk of cyber penetration. Our prime directive is to provide private and secure communications for everyone, and as we are not connected to any Big Tech platform, we offer a truly independent, private and secure means of communications, without any data mining, through our proprietary technology and our secure servers based in Switzerland."
Sekur also believes that by adding its Swiss-hosted SekurVPN solution to its other solutions, it increases internet connection encryption of users and protects their identity from malicious hackers. Since the Company has added SekurVPN and customized "à la carte" bundles for consumers and businesses, approximately 50% of all customers have been buying bundles with approximately 60% of customers purchasing SekurVPN in the bundle or on its own.
On April 7, 2023, the Company launched SekurVPN, its privacy VPN solution available through Sekur.com, and began commercial sales of its highly anticipated privacy and security VPN solution. The solution is also offered for sale in USD, CAD, NZD, AUD, SGD, CHF, EUR and GPB. Sekur plans to do a full scale launch before year-end 2023 with several videos on social media promoting SekurVPN to select targeted audiences in the U.S. Ghiai discusses the advantages of having a privacy VPN, and other preventive measures to minimize cyberattacks for consumers and businesses, on Sekur Hack of the Week Episode, a nationwide TV show broadcast on Bloomberg TV, Fox Business TV and on streaming media.
SekurVPN is especially meant for privacy enthusiasts and users wanting to protect their identity from hackers. An example would be users going to their e-banking or shopping online, using their emails, using messaging applications and wanting to have full privacy and protection from hackers hijacking their IP location and signal. The service guarantees not to use Big Tech or hyperscalers for its functioning or hosting, and it guarantees that there are no third party bundles sold with it so no data is leaked or sold to third parties. It guarantees no traffic pulling or monitoring and no phone number is required to register to the service.
According to a Forbes article, 66% of surveyed internet users within the U.S. use a VPN to help protect personal data, 80% use a VPN for increased security and 33% use a VPN to mask their internet activity. More statistics can be found on this VPN Statistics And Trends In 2023 article.
