Startups with top secret intellectual property need the privacy, security, & control of dedicated email servers. Linux programmers love open source mail service. Open source, which has become a huge part of Silicon Valley tech culture, can make relatively simple things, like setting up email complicated & time-consuming. Mail security/privacy guru Ken Simpson, CEO & co-founder of MailChannels, can offer practical tips. For instance, he advises admins to secure users’ desktops using a live Linux distribution like Tails (the Amnesic Incognito Live System), and encrypt email that you then send through a reliable service like Gmail. This is the setup that Edward Snowden, Laura Poitras, and the rest of the leak gang use.
I’d like to submit a bylined article by Ken that offers time-saving and soundly secure practical tips on this topic. Please contact me by email [[email protected]] or 1(408)504-5506.
