Criptext has introduced an application that protects emails and text messages from redistribution, giving companies unparalleled control over their information.

The need for encrypted and protected text messaging and email grows by the day. A number of high-profile leaks – such as a recent breach at Home Depot or the iCloud leak of nude celebrity photos – have made this clearer than ever before. In fact, information leakages cost companies around the world millions of dollars every year and 35% of it is due to human error.

Because mistakes are inevitable and companies cannot control what their employees do or say, it is essential they have a method of protecting their confidentiality and integrity. This is exactly what Criptext does. The application serves as the hub for electronic communication between all members of a company, keeping the information they share safe and secure. In short, they let companies be in control of their information, no matter where it is.

The Criptext approach to secure messaging and email is multifaceted. Their approach starts with a feature that allows texts and emails to be recalled at any point in time. Simply put, these messages can be erased from another person’s device whenever the user wants them to be.

Criptext also allows its users to see when their messages and emails have been sent, read, recalled, and forwarded. Emails can even be made “unforwardable.” An auto-recall timer, or “self-destruct,” can be added to emails, effectively deleting them from a receiver’s inbox a set time after being opened.

End-to-end encryption is standard on all texts through the Criptext application. Emails are encrypted as well..

Best of all, Criptext is easy to use. The company has spent a lot of time and energy making their service as simple and intuitive as possible, so even the least tech-savvy people can learn how to use it in seconds. Criptext is available for download on both iPhone and Android. Emails can be sent to people using any email service and the receiver does not have to have Criptext installed to open or read them.

Criptext got its start relatively recently, in May of 2014. Though they are a new service, they have already made use of customer feedback to improve the functionality and design of their application. Indeed, existing customers seem to be very happy with the level of service and security Criptext provides.
