AJAX-Based Freenigma Service Provides Privacy for Web-Based E-Mail

Professional Edition for Corporates and a Microsoft Outlook Plug-In to be Released Soon

freenigma's e-mail encryption service’s public beta phase was successfully completed at the end of September. freenigma now also supports the German webmail services WEB.DE and GMX in addition to Google Mail, Yahoo!Mail and Hotmail/MSN. freenigma has also announced a Professional Edition for corporate customers as well as a Microsoft Outlook plug-in, both to be released by the end of the year.

The free and easy-to-use freenigma service is based on Web 2.0 technology (AJAX) and is installed as a Firefox extension. Software developers worldwide can use an open programming interface (Open API) to extend freenigma and integrate it into their own applications.

"Our users use freenigma to protect both their business secrets and personal privacy in Web 2.0. freenigma is the only encryption solution that absolutely everyone can understand and use," says Stefan Richter, founder of freenigma gmbh and Managing Director of freiheit.com technologies gmbh.

freenigma doesn't store passwords or e-mails — the e-mail encryption and decryption take place directly on the user's computer. freenigma runs across platforms on GNU/Linux, Apple Macintosh or Microsoft Windows XP. The only requirement is a Firefox browser.
"Encryption is a powerful defensive weapon for free people. It offers a technical guarantee of privacy, regardless of who is running the government. It's hard to think of a more powerful, less dangerous tool for liberty." Esther Dyson.

freenigma was developed by the Hamburg software developers freiheit.com technologies, who have also developed meny large e-commerce software systems in Europe — for example, buch.de, buch.ch, bol.de, books.ch, shop.spiegel.de, Libri.de, travelchannel.de, Bookzilla.de, kilroytravels.com. The company works among others for DaimlerChrysler AG, Evotec AG, Sabre Travel Network, Otto (GmbH & Co KG), Gruner + Jahr AG & Co KG, Tchibo Versand GmbH, T-Systems GmbH and tesa AG.
