With any type of security software, questions will arise regarding the trustworthiness of the system. Consumers are not quick to trust just any system and often assume that there is no such thing as privacy in this day and age.

In the novel 1984, George Orwell’s tale of a dystopian future, the stage is set for the idea of a society under constant surveillance.

Written during the beginning of the Cold War when technological advances were occurring at a rapid pace, the post-war generation grappled with the concept that privacy was under assault by technology. A great mistrust of technology ensued that lingers to this day.

Fast-forwarding half a century, after the Wikileaks scandal of last year, Umberto Eco opined that true confidentiality does not exist, claiming that putting any information online is like to putting it out onto the street corner. (Incidentally, the information that was leaked was provided by a whistle-blower—not by a successful hacking attempt.)

Eco’s point is similar to what Callpod addresses with our security software—in a world with public, open Wi-Fi networks and wireless telecommunications, Smartphones, laptops and tablets represent opportunities to access the most important information that users need to protect. Hackers, fraudsters and electronic thieves account for billions of dollars in annual loss and damages.

Callpod understands the concerns of consumers over whether or not Keeper® truly keeps their information private. Major issues arose recently with Dropbox’s privacy and security safeguards questioned. This also happened to RSA, a world-leader in the banking security space. Now is a good opportunity to explain how the software works for any customers with lingering doubts.

Any information or data that is entered into Keeper is immediately encrypted with a 128-bit AES cipher, an encryption standard that was recognized and adopted by the U.S. Government to be used in the protection of classified data.

Without the master password, the data that exists within Keeper® is absolutely undecipherable. Approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for use as security software, its encryption standards are military-grade.

Subscribers may backup their information to our Cloud Security Vault™. Some consumers might feel an immediate reluctance to store data on any server or in the cloud as a way to revert to the deep-seated generational mistrust of technology, but one thing must be understood insofar as Keeper® is concerned: Callpod personnel do not have access to the user’s information. No one but the holder of the master password can decipher the data.

Furthermore, unsuccessful attempts at accessing the program are thwarted by the self-destruct function. Keeper® gives users the chance to type in the correct password 5 times, but on the final try it recognizes that it is experiencing a security attack and self-destructs, wiping out the data that had been stored within.

In a world where true privacy does not seem to exist anymore, Keeper provides consumers with a refuge within which they know their information is secured and most importantly, is theirs and theirs alone.
