Vereign, a blockchain-powered solution for email security and identity management, announced the launch of its beta. The browser plugin enables a security overlay in email clients, office programs, and chat apps. The goal is to bring confidentiality and authenticity to online communication without interrupting workflows.
With 3.8 billion users worldwide, email is the most important means of communication today. It’s extremely influential – and vulnerable to abuse. Malware and scams have caused billions of dollars in damage, and over 90% of these scams initially traveled through email.
- Suspicious sender alerts: Vereign knows a user’s actual bank from an imposter.
- Identity management: Users can safely store their digital identity data using cryptographic signatures, transmitting only the information they choose, following Know Your Customer (KYC) guidelines at Swiss banking standards.
- Single sign-on and unique usability: No usernames, no passwords, no key management
- Digital “passports”: Users define specific profiles with different levels of information to share with different strata of contacts.
- Authenticated emails that beat the spam blocker: Emails sent through Vereign are digitally signed and get through spam filters at a much higher rate, useful for a range of business and sales applications.
- Digital signatures: Users can legally, digitally sign and send authenticated, verified documents.
- Verified transaction history: Users can see an eternal log of messages, recipient identities, and delivery receipts without risk of information tampering.
