– Showcases major upgrade of secure communications for mobile and desktop users
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2013 / PRNewswire – Seecrypt Group, Inc. announced today the superior functionality and features of its next generation software that will support Seecrypt, a commercially available mobile app built on military-grade technology that enables companies and individuals to connect via voice and text over a private network, utilizing end-to-end encryption that changes security keys with every message sent and received.

The new software – known as SC3 – will offer users a greatly enhanced interface design and expands platform support beyond Android and Apple iOS phones, to BlackBerry 10 and Windows mobile devices. Support for desktop systems such as Windows 7 & 8 and Mac OS X is also in development and anticipated for release in 2014.
Specific feature upgrades, which are fully protected by the encryption technology, include the ability to:
integrate an address book;
send voice messages;
set up and execute conference calls;
send group text messages; and
send text messages with attachments.
Users will be able to send encrypted messages even when offline, send encrypted attachments, and secure conference calls.
In recognition of increasing global concerns regarding individual and business communications, Seecrypt’s latest round of technological advancements is based on internationally recognized principles without reliance on a particular infrastructure employed or approved by a specific country or standards body.
“Without a doubt security has become a concern for practically everyone in business or government,” said Mornay Walters, chief executive officer of Seecrypt Group, Inc. “We hear a constant stream of news items involving the exposure of critical company or confidential institutional information, which all have a negative impact, monetarily or otherwise. With the first iteration of Seecrypt we responded to the obvious need for private and secure communication and now – with SC3 – we have taken that safekeeping one step further.”
Seecrypt is a leading player in the secure mobile app industry, focused on enabling individuals and businesses to protect their communications.
In the wake of the Snowden-NSA scandal, Seecrypt has seen a 400% increase in users and has been downloaded in more than 215 countries. With SC3, a commercial model of the app will remain free indefinitely, while enhanced features will be offered through a subscription model, which is currently set at $3/month after a complimentary introductory period.
