The distribution agreement with SYNNEX Canada covers all of Canada, and will expose GlobeX’s secure email and messaging solutions to over 11,000 resellers in Canada alone. GlobeX has decided to partner with Darn IT Group in the implementation and training of the resellers nationwide and has named Darnley Greson, CEO of Darn IT Group, as GlobeX Data’s Channel Development Manager for North America. The term of the Agreement shall be for a period of one year after the Effective Date with automatic one-year renewals unless terminated by either party upon 30 days prior written notice.
Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “We are very happy to have been accepted by SYNNEX Canada for our Sekur Swiss hosted secure communications solution suite, which includes secure email, secure file share and secure messaging. We are looking forward to demonstrate the unique technology and privacy advantages of Sekur to SYNNEX Canada’s 11,000 resellers. Canada has suffered tremendous amounts of cyber-attacks, including the attack on government institutions, such as the Canada Revenue Agency, various healthcare organizations and facilities, and resource and energy companies. Whether you are an SME, an Enterprise or a government organization, you need protection from email cyber-attacks, and data theft. Our strength in using proprietary technology, Swiss privacy laws and no third-party platform such as AWS, MS cloud or Google cloud, puts us in a unique position to provide true privacy and security. GlobeX is here to provide the best protection and privacy to all documents, emails and instant message communications.”
GlobeX Data and SYNNEX Canada have started the process of marketing to resellers and estimate start of sales to be in January 2021. SYNNEX Canada estimates that 5% to 15% of its resellers would resell Sekur, which means that out of 11,000 resellers, between 550 and 1,650 would be selling GlobeX’s security solutions. GlobeX’s internal team estimates that in the first year, it can effectively market its solutions to approximately 100 resellers by the end of 2021 and to over 500 active resellers over the next 3 years. The Company estimates that each active reseller would sell a minimum of 300 licenses per year, resulting in recurring gross sales of CA$ 360,000 (US$ 275,000) / month or CA$ 4,320,000 (US$ 3,297,000) / year by the end of the 1st year and CA$ 1,800,000 (US$ 1,375,000) / month or CA$ 21,600,000 (US$ 16,488,000) / year by the end of the 3rd year, representing 150,000 Sekur licenses sold in Canada in the 3rd year. GlobeX plans to allocate 5% of gross sales into marketing Sekur with SYNNEX Canada, in order to grow yearly sales and awareness to resellers. This would ensure that as sales increase, so does marketing to more resellers. As sales start in Canada, GlobeX has plans to approach SYNNEX Corporation in the USA to expand in that market as well for 2021. GlobeX has a 5-year goal of marketing its solution to 1000 SYNNEX resellers, resulting in 300,000 Sekur licenses sold both in Canada and the USA.
Sekur is the Company’s Swiss hosted secure communications suite, which includes encrypted messaging and voice recording transfer with self-destruct timer, an encrypted email account and a secure file transfer solution. All data is secured using GlobeX’s proprietary encryption technology and is hosted exclusively in Switzerland for ultimate privacy.
Sekur includes the Company’s latest SekurMail technology, which includes proprietary anti-phishing and privacy feature called SekurSend®. SekurSend® lets a user send an email to any other recipient, whether they have Sekur or not, in full privacy and security as the email never leaves Sekur’s encrypted email servers based in Switzerland. The recipient can then click on the notification and reply in the same manner using SekurReply®, without the recipient having to register for a Sekur account. The sender can also decide to protect any email sent by adding a password to open it, a read-limit and a self-destruct timer as well. Sending an email with the SekurSend® feature allows the senders and recipients to add limitless size attachments to the emails without crowding the recipients’ email box. This also guarantees to eliminate BEC attacks for businesses and email phishing attacks. Additionally, SekurMail includes full control of email delivery, automatic data export for large Enterprises and an automatic Data Loss Prevention technology (“DLP”) with real time continuous archiving.
One of the many Privacy and security features of Sekur is that the user does not register with their phone number, eliminating a huge loophole in security and privacy. Just recently, according to an article written by Lindsey O’Donnell and posted on the website threatpost.com on June 5 2020, it was disclosed that WhatsApp phone numbers and users were searchable on Google, creating a massive security and privacy breach. Earlier in the year, an article was written about a similar flaw affecting all businesses, NGOs, UN and non-profit organizations, where WhatsApp Group members were also compromised and searchable in a reverse engineering trick done on Google.
Recent data breaches in messaging applications and in particular in the WhatsApp application have created a certain urgency for businesses and data privacy advocates to protect their communications form cyber-attacks and identity theft via mobile and desktop devices.
Sekur eliminates many of the privacy and security risks by not only not requiring a phone number, which would divulge a user’s phone device ID, but also by not social engineering a user’s phone or computer contact list and infecting the contacts by default as well. Sekur issues each user a username and a SM number. The SM number is the contact ID a user would disclose in order for other SM users to be added. The service comes with a self-destruct timer and other features as well, including GlobeX’s proprietary VirtualVaults and HeliX technologies with all data stored in Swiss hosted encrypted servers.
GlobeX’s Data privacy solutions are all hosted in Switzerland, protecting users’ data from any outside data intrusion requests. In Switzerland, the right to privacy is guaranteed in article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution. The Federal Act on Data Protection (“FADP”) of 19 June 1992 (in force since 1993) has set up a strict protection of privacy by prohibiting virtually any processing of personal data which is not expressly authorized by the data subjects. The protection is subject to the authority of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
Under Swiss federal law, it is a crime to publish information based on leaked “secret official discussions.” In 2010 the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland found that IP addresses are personal information and that under Swiss privacy laws they may not be used to track Internet usage without the knowledge of the individuals involved.
