(25-May-10) Technology that promises highly secure, confidential and self-destructing messages over the Internet isn’t only available to top secret intelligence agents.
Chicago, Ill.-based VaporStream Inc., which released its first demo of the VaporStream non-documentable e-mail service in 2006, has since designed an enterprise-ready version and patented the technology.
VaporStream gives users the privacy and confidentiality they would expect when they are not online, said Joseph Collins, president and CEO of VaporStream. “Unfortunately, we live in a world where everything you do online is recorded,” he said.
Collins likens VaporStream to a phone conversation. “VaporStream, in essence, is a record-less messaging system. Similar to a conversation like we are having over the phone, it allows us to have the conversation and once you see it, read it and reply to it, it’s gone,” he said
