Andorra, April 19, 2023: Freemindtronic will launch DataShielder in September 2023, an end-to-end encryption application compatible with all messaging services in the world. This disruptive innovation will allow users to benefit from increased security for their online communications, regardless of the messaging service used. DataShielder will also offer simple and effective encryption key management for enhanced privacy. With DataShielder, Freemindtronic takes on an ambitious challenge, that of a system that works completely anonymously, without a server or database. This innovative app works in real time on Android and iPhone phones while offering end-to-end encryption through segmented OpenPGP encryption keys. It can also operate contactless via a Freemindtronic NFC HSM, providing enhanced security for users.
Freemindtronic, a company specializing in the design and manufacture of cybersecurity and safety solutions, announces today the upcoming launch of its latest innovation: DataShielder, an encryption key management application that enables the generation, storage and offline use of all types of symmetric and asymmetric keys of OpenPGP encryption algorithms.
DataShielder gives users full control over their encryption and decryption keys, as well as file encryption and data signing with electronic signature self-verification functionality. DataShielder’s extension, developed for Chromium and Firefox-based web browsers, also offers a message, file, electronic signature, and signed document validity verification service.
Protected by an international patent gold medalist of international inventions of Geneva 2021 including patents (EP3586258A1, FR3063365B1, US11281759B2, KR102479661B1, JP7105495B2, WO2018154258A1 and CN110402440A
DataShielder is the first application compatible with all messaging services, offering also an SMS-encrypted instant messaging service.
While other end-to-end encrypted messaging apps exist, such as Signal, Telegram, WhatsApp or Apple’s iMessage system, the encryption and decryption keys are not under the absolute control of the user. They cannot generate, save, share, use and receive them freely. They cannot also use them to sign files. This is where DataShielder makes the difference.
DataShielder is a disruptive patent-protected innovation that operates in real time, without a server, without a database, in offline mode and in volatile memory. It is completely anonymized because it does not request any information about the user, does not collect any data and does not save any unencrypted keys. The encrypted keys can be stored physically outside the phone.
Finally, DataShielder is also fully compatible with two Freemindtronic technologies, EviCypher and EviPass, which operate via an NFC HSM. This greatly expands the possibilities of segmented key authentication with the possibility of adding trust criteria such as fingerprint and predefined geo-zone of authorization to use encryption and/or decryption keys.
With DataShielder, Freemindtronic reaffirms its commitment to security and privacy. This disruptive innovation meets the needs of users concerned about the security of their data, offering them a single solution for managing their encryption keys. With DataShielder, users can generate, store and use their encryption keys securely and without relying on a trusted third party.
In addition, DataShielder is the first encryption application compatible with all messaging services in the world, offering a universal solution for users. This universal solution creates a bridge between the different messaging services, allowing users to communicate securely and encrypted with their contacts, whether they use Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or any other service. DataShielder thus offers an alternative to proprietary messaging applications that impose their own protocols and encryption keys. DataShielder is the only application that respects the choice and freedom of users in terms of communication.
