PreVeil announced today that it is offering its cybersecurity platform at no charge to critical infrastructure institutions battling the Coronavirus crisis. This offer will help those workers whose important duties are now being carried out at home on devices with questionable levels of security, making their important information a prime target for hackers.
PreVeil, the provider of end-to-end encrypted email and file sharing, announced that it is offering its cybersecurity platform at no charge to critical infrastructure institutions battling the Coronavirus crisis. As the mass exodus from workplaces to home offices has swept the country, few organizations are fully prepared for the cybersecurity challenges remote work brings. PreVeil is moving to help federal, state and local governments and agencies, first responders, crisis management teams and healthcare non-profits by offering its platform for free.
Hackers have already spotted opportunity in the important push to work from home. The Department of Defense reported that cyberattacks on its networks have soared as remote work has placed unprecedented loads on its networks. The federal government’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was among the first agencies to face cyberattack as it worked to respond to the spread of the virus.

“There is no precedent for the volume of critical work being done right now from home,” said PreVeil CEO Randy Battat. “We are putting PreVeil’s resources into public service to secure and support critical communications during this national emergency.”
Today, executive strategy sessions, crisis management planning, sensitive government work and more are all happening on home computers, laptops and mobile devices with questionable levels of security. PreVeil is reaching out to help quickly and effectively solve that problem.
“Far too many organizations have not come to grips with the vulnerabilities that come with this scale of work from home, especially when sensitive data is involved,” said Juliette Kayyem, former assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. “It’s great that PreVeil is offering key players in this crisis a solution that is so effective and simple to use. This is a real public service.”

PreVeil’s end-to-end encryption protects email, files and data—even if networks and servers are breached or administrators are compromised. PreVeil can be deployed in minutes, integrates with familiar Mac and PC applications, and is easy to administer. The platform’s encryption offers secure email and file sharing, independent of the quality of machines and devices on which it’s used.
“As a nation, we need to be adopting the smartest tools out there for our cybersecurity,” said Admiral James Stavridis (ret.), former Supreme Allied Commander NATO and PreVeil board member. “PreVeil’s combination of light footprint and ultra-security is state of the art and never more welcome than right now.”
PreVeil is ready to help agencies on the front line of the current emergency devote their full attention to the important tasks in front of them without extra vulnerability as teams expand their remote work. Relevant organizations are encouraged to contact PreVeil to ensure secure communications as the country rallies to fight the Coronavirus.
