Criptext, a startup founded by Luis Loaiza (CTI) and Alberto Vera (PCO) from Guayaquil and the Panamanian Mayer Mizrachi (CEO), closed last week a round of funding of half a million dollars with three investors from Latin America and the Caribbean, among them participated Joseph Matalon, Manager of the directive Board of the Development Bank of Jamaica and Chairman of the Group ICD Limited (company of the same country-based investment).
Criptext Mail and Criptext Messenger,bet on two of the needs of the moment: security and privacy on the net. The first is downloadable free from www.criptext.com and the second store apps of Android and iOS.
How does the email solution? When you enter your Outlook or Gmail email – through the browser on which you installed the program – provider the Criptext toolbar will automatically load. “It is a process that converts the information into unreadable codes to third parties – and saves the information on the server.”, explains Loaiza, computer engineer graduated at Espol.
The true value of the solution is the sole owner of the post who sends them. With the help of the Criptext toolbar, the user can know whether or not the mail has been read and withdraw if necessary even if the receiver already saw it.
Criptext Messenger, on the other hand, works such as the popular WhatsApp, send pictures and voice notes, but with dozens of security filters. For example, if one of the members of the conversation takes a picture, another Member will receive a notice. Another available option is retracting, i.e. delete sent messages from the display of the transmitter and the receiver. Also put a shelf-life of up to 15 seconds.
Although the startup business offices are in New York, the development team is completely Guayaquil is located in the city. In addition, it has an office in Espol, to recruit talent.
