Mynigma – IT Security Emails Berlin Startup

Mynigma is the self-proclaimed future of e-mail encryption. The project began in 2012, long before the NSA revelations brought IT security to the forefront of attention. Its purpose has always been straightforward: simple e-mail encryption that anybody can use. Out of frustration with existing software like PGP, the three mathematicians Dr. Roman Priebe, Lukas Neumann and Dr. Marco Schreiber created a program that does not interfere with the normal workflow and still offers a very high degree of security. By making the app ‘M’ free for personal use, the team aims to stem the tide of total digital surveillance. This year, Mynigma received the CeBIT Innovation Award for its groundbreaking combination of usability with end-to-end security. Buoyed by this success, the team is rapidly expanding its sphere of influence from a Mac and iOS app to an Outlook add-in and upcoming releases of an Android app and a Thunderbird add-on. A B2B solution is also being developed in partnership with SAP.
