ZEPHYR COVE, Nev., May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- VirnetX Holding Corporation (NYSE MKT: VHC), an Internet security software and technology company, announced today that its Gabriel Collaboration Suite, an integrated suite of secure communication applications featuring: Secure Mail, Secure Messaging, Secure Voice Call, Secure Video Call and Secure Share & Sync, will be available for public download starting Tuesday, May 19, 2015, at the Gabriel website: www.GabrielSecure.com.
Gabriel Collaboration Suite will be available for download at no charge and will offer in-app purchase options. It will initially be available on Android, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, with more operating system support to follow shortly.
"We are very excited to be releasing Gabriel for public use at this time," said Dr. Robert Short, VirnetX Chief Technical Officer and Chief Scientist. "Gabriel has been designed and built with personal privacy and security as a foundational principle. As a result, Gabriel provides uncompromising data security, peer access control and privacy. In contrast to the majority of social media and Internet communication applications, Gabriel is designed so that users do not have to transmit data to, or store data with, any third party, including VirnetX. Users can therefore rest easy that their data is stored only on their own devices."
Gabriel Collaboration Suite allows users, over mobile or WiFi networks, to:
- Make free voice or video calls or send chat messages to other Gabriel members in their network with the assurance that transmission is secured and encrypted end-to-end.
- Take complete control of their emails, chat messages, files and other private data, secured on their own devices, while enabling authorized secure encrypted access from anywhere at any time.
- Create a network of trusted Gabriel contacts by inviting them into their secure network directly from their Gabriel application and share presence with them securely.
- Send and receive secure and encrypted emails directly from and on your devices.
- Share files with other trusted Gabriel users in their network directly from their devices without having to send it to VirnetX or other third-party servers.
Gabriel Collaboration Suite employs VirnetX's patented Gabriel Secure Communications Platform technology to create automatic secure and encrypted end-to-end communication links between two devices to circumvent the threats of hacking and data mining, and minimize the threats of man-in-the-middle attacks while blocking out undesired peers from listening in. Unlike other messaging applications, Gabriel Collaboration Suite does not store any user emails, chat messages user data in a server farm, and any email or chat message sent using Gabriel are encrypted from viewing by any third party or government agency. Gabriel Collaboration Suite provides users with a single, easy to use interface that remains consistent across all users' devices.
"We believe our Gabriel launch is a major milestone for VirnetX and for everyone who wants to communicate privately without fear of third parties listening to their communications or stealing their data." said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We believe Gabriel will be a significant cost saver for businesses as it thwarts external attacks and damaging intrusions."
As previously announced, there will be a Gabriel launch presentation after the 2015 Annual Shareholders meeting on Thursday, May 14, 2015 starting at 1 pm. The event will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – South Lake Tahoe.
WiFi and cellular data charges may apply when using some of the VirnetX Products and Services.
