Most Over The counter, leading security products, require a rather, technical configurations tweaking, by the user, to work at optimum level. Moreover, by default, these products, are more focused, on "post attack or exposure, solutions", rather, than, "preventing" the user from such exposures, specially, if, they are, channeled through trusted sources, such as, a malicious link, from a friend's email. Since, the non-technical SMB and consumer segment is unable to tweak the configurations, these applications, fail to provide, the required level of security, thus, making the users, vulnerable to online security threats.

Our Products, are designed, with easy navigation UI, for non-Technically savvy users, and focused on, preventing the user from insecure interactions, rather, than, merely providing post exposure solutions.

Our content safety analysis algorithm, scans and detects, hidden harmful content or links, on any webpage, Email, etc. and blocks it, before vulnerable exposure.

Our Email security products also use the algorithm to detect certain content within emails and alert the user whether it’s a Scamming email and can even detect if the Sender of an email is on any Global or on our own active Scammer list. In addition to security we also show you your contacts Social Profile right inside your inbox. You can immediately see what people look like, where they’re based, and what they do. Not Only you will stay safe and secure but you can grow your network by connecting on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and more.
