Revelations that the National Security Agency is gathering vast amounts of data about the phone and Internet communications of hundreds of millions of people has been good news for at least one group of entrepreneurs — those selling online encryption services that promise to shield email, text and voice from surveillance.
A cheap new encryption technology for mobile phones completely blocks eavesdropping, even from warrant-wielding law enforcement agents – raising fears the technology could fall into the hands of terrorists or criminals.
Mr. Boulter said Seecrypt is based in South Africa to be beyond the reach of U.S. courts and the surveillance orders they authorize.
"There's been a massive spike in demand [for encryption] on the back of this story," said Harvey Boulter, CEO of Seecrypt, a South Africa-based firm that offers its product initially as a free download.
