BURLINGTON, MA (April 30, 2012) – Ziptr today announced its Safe Online Communication solution has been selected as a finalist in the Best Consumer Tech that Makes Life Easier category for the MITX Innovation Awards. Held annually by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, the MITX Innovation Awards celebrate the innovations powering the future of marketing and revolutionizing the way we work and play.
"The 2012 finalists represent some of the best innovators in the region, these forward-thinking companies are developing unique, new solutions to problems that are game changing," said MITX President Debi Kleiman. "We were so impressed by this group during a very competitive year, it was amazing to see the range and depth of new things being created here, and we're very proud to honor their great achievements."
Ziptr is a secure communication solution that enables people to create a private network of people they trust and then engage in electronic conversations in which they can include the most sensitive content and files, confident they are secure.
To communicate effectively, people need to access to their information. That's why everything in a user’s Ziptr vault – messages and files – is automatically backed up, synchronized and encrypted at the point of entry, through the encrypted transmission channel and on the recipient's system. By maintaining the relational connection between contacts, files and conversations, Ziptr gives one-click access to view files and messages by person. Easy labeling features allow people to filter the files and conversations view in the way that makes sense to the user.
"Multiple logins, dozens of portals, expired passwords, inaccessible files, expensive overnight deliveries: communicating safely has historically has been inconvenient and frustrating," commented Firdaus Bhathena, Ziptr CEO and Founder. "We are thrilled to be recognized by MITX for making life easier for people who want to connect privately to anyone they chose – from their accountant to their family members."
Ziptr will be recognized with the other finalists in the category of Best Consumer Tech that Makes Life Easier at the ceremony traditionally attended by over 350 of the region’s top interactive marketing and technology professionals. Winners will be announced at the ceremony in the Westin Copley Place on Tuesday, June 12th at 6pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.mitxawards.org/innovation.
