No sender, no receiver, no problem
Privacy-sensitive e-mail software circumvents compliance
TechWorld.com - VaporStream has released software it claims will not record details of who sent an e-mail message, or who received it, and so provide a new level of privacy for electronic communications.
Such software would mean content could remain private and neither sender nor receiver would be exposed to legal risk from the communication, the company said. It would also be a means of defeating the cover-all aspects of compliance regulations and legal discovery investigations by ensuring private communications remain private.
VaporStream believes its product could be used when discussing intellectual property, during contract negotiations, or for sensitive human resource issues. There would be no electronic records of such discussions.
But the company is at pains to point out that "business records" should be recorded. However, the definition of "business record" is up to the sender of a VaporStream message.
The product is being developed to work on BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices.
