CloudPrime Introduces QuickDrop -- the Safest and Most Secure Way to Communicate in an Insecure World
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
the leader in innovative cloud-based secure messaging today announced
QuickDrop, the safest way to communicate and send files of any type --
documents, texts, music, videos or photos to, and between, mobile
devices. QuickDrop is a first-of-its-kind, free, secure communications
app providing users with the highest level of security available on a
mobile device. QuickDrop combines extraordinary ease-of-use with
seamless mobile device integration, enabling users to share files of any
type with no size limitations. QuickDrop is available immediately for
iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad, and will be available for Mac Desktops and Android
devices in Q1 2013.
CloudPrime makes the public cloud as secure as a private network through
its proprietary Secure Messaging Fabric, backed by four secure messaging
patents and millions of dollars in R&D. With QuickDrop message
encryption and tracking are done at the file level, as opposed to on a
macro or application level, ensuring no long-term storage of messages in
the public cloud and guaranteeing message data will never be compromised.
CloudPrime was founded by experts that developed some of the most
well-known enterprise messaging brands, such as IBM, AT&T (News - Alert) and SlamDunk
Networks, as well as the industry's first hosted messaging service,
which acted as the Internet's "post office" for large scale corporate
email delivery, Critical Path (News - Alert). The company is leveraging this unique
combination of experience to bring enterprise-class secure messaging
communications to a free, easy-to-use app that integrates seamlessly
with mobile devices.
"We live in an insecure world where unfortunately our inalienable right
to privacy is no longer guaranteed," said Bob Miller, co-founder and CEO
at CloudPrime and former executive at IBM. "I've spent most of my career
in the business of enterprise communication and secure messaging and the
combination of what I learned led me to see the need for a cloud-based,
secure communications solution to enabl everyone to have affordable,
enterprise-class security on their mobile devices. It's estimated that 87
percent of the world's population has a mobile device and the most
popular functions are email and text. But that doesn't mean those forms
of communication are secure. For information that needs to remain
private there is no better solution than QuickDrop."
CloudPrime's Secure Messaging Fabric is a messaging layer on top of a
public cloud, which eliminates the need for a physical point-to-point
connection while providing additional routing and performance related
functionality for secure, one-to-many file sending. The fabric also has
built in redundancy that assures message delivery and avoids outages.
QuickDrop transforms a mobile device into a secure communications
platform that is capable of delivering files to users around the world
securely and reliably.
QuickDrop affords users with:
An intuitive Inbox/Outbox user interface for message sending and
Military grade encryption (256-bit AES) for privacy and digital
certificates for authenticity and non-repudiation
Guaranteed delivery of messages and files sent along multiple paths to
ensure the data is never lost or compromised
Adherence to compliance guidelines such as Sarbanes Oxley, GLBA,
HIPAA, PCI (News - Alert) and EU Privacy for secure document transfer
Sender-to-receiver secure transfer of any type of document of
unlimited size, with no need to download or save private documents in
"With the increasing security breaches and financial scams taking place
daily, our firm utilizes QuickDrop to ensure client privacy and
security, which gives us and our clients' peace of mind," said Laurence
Balter of Oracle (News - Alert) Investment Research.
"Email is maybe the most-utilized method of communication between
lawyers and parties, but it does not provide the highest level of
security, and human error, especially with respect to the 'reply-all'
button, can inadvertently deliver very sensitive information to the
wrong people," said Derek Lipkin, associate, CAI International, Inc.
(NYSE: CAP), and early adopter of the QuickDrop app. "QuickDrop
eliminates that risk by allowing users to communicate sensitive
information directly to the people who need to see it, with the utmost
protection. Further, the security QuickDrop provides could change how
parties close deals by allowing them to exchange fully executed
documents electronically, while having the confidence that those
documents are authentic, ultimately saving both time and money."
The QuickDrop app is available as a free download in the Apple app
store. Users will be able to send any data free of charge for the first
30 days of use, and there is no fee for receiving documents. Data
delivery after the first 30 days of use is available on a price per MB
module, and users can send 1GB of data at a cost of less than $10.
