End-to-end encrypted file sharing and messaging platform for the enterprise

Crypho is a messaging and collaboration tool for organizations with high security requirements, like law enforcement, government and the financial industry. It enables teams and employees to easily share files, send messages and chat from their computers and mobile devices. The difference from similar tools is that everything is end-to-end encrypted. Since all data is encrypted on the client, and only the customers have the encryption keys, no-one can intercept and access the data. Not even Crypho’s own staff. Not only does it protect communication against surveillance and industrial espionage. Rather than offering “stronger security” end-to-end-encryption changes the security and cloud paradigm completely, and negates a lot of the usual legal and compliance headaches that follow with modern cloud services. Suddenly, a lot of organisations in government, law enforcement, health and financial services can use quick and lightweight modern communications they were earlier barred from because of security or compliance requirements. Crypho makes it possible to establish a secure communications channel to anywhere in the world in a matter of minutes. Crypho makes it possible to communicate with classified information on off-the-shelf hardware, like mobile phones and laptops.
