BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 2010 Hacker Halted Conference in Miami on October 13, 2010, SECNAP Network Security will demonstrate the ease with which cyber sniffers, eavesdroppers and hackers can intercept email messages, despite widespread user trust that email messages are private and secure.

Email encryption techniques, such as PGP, TLS and SSL, have limited effectiveness in securing email messages as they travel from point A to point B. Public-key encryption solutions have numerous weaknesses, and suffer from the absence of a universal key repository. Some symmetric encryption solutions have vulnerabilities as well.

"To date, no solution on the market could guarantee complete, end-to-end encryption of email content, headers, attachments and other identifiers," said SECNAP Network Security chief Michael Scheidell. "Rule18™ email encryption takes email privacy to an entirely new level."

Rule18 email encryption is a game changer in several important ways. Besides providing absolute encryption end to end, Rule18 works across the universe of smartphones, including iPhone, BlackBerry and Android, as well as mail-enabled mobiles, laptops, desktops and tablets. Rule18 email encryption is compatible with all major email platforms. No special equipment, servers, portals or software is needed. And although the technology behind Rule18 is highly advanced, the solution is uncommonly easy to deploy and use.

"Smartphone users are driving huge market growth, and their demand for ease and speed has consistently trumped the enterprise desire for security," said Scheidell. "Rule18 brings these forces together in a win-win, game-changing way."

With Rule18 email encryption, enterprises, small businesses, schools, healthcare organizations, government agencies and individuals are assured that their email communications are private and secure. Rule18 meets current regulatory privacy requirements, including HITECH, HIPAA and GLBA encryption specifications, as well as emerging state privacy requirements.
