Cybersecurity: Soon-to-launch Crypviser instant messaging app to offer blockchain security

Earlier this week the French government announced it was to develop its own secure messaging app because it was concerned about the integrity of the Telegram and WhatsApp platforms. The issue with both of them is they ultimately rely upon central servers that could be compromised by hackers (whether criminal or government agencies) or via court orders. To address this issue Dusseldorf-based Crypviser has developed what it claims is the world’s most secure messaging platform that no government can block, stop or spy on because all verification is based on blockchain technology. This could be a platform that will appeal to a lot of law firms concerned about maintaining the confidentiality of their communications.

In a big hire for the UK office of Pennsylvania-headquartered legal tech software and services business Wilson Legal Solutions, Fieldfisher’s head of business transformation Lindsay Barthram (pictured) has joined as director of consulting services for EMEA. The move is potentially a big deal for LexisNexis: Barthram, who at Fieldfisher helped oversee the successful rollout of LexisOne, will notably be evangelising for the Microsoft Dynamics-based ERP, which has yet to take off in the market and with the recent decision by Wedlake Bell to back out of its LexisOne selection in favour of Thomson Reuters Elite, has looked on decidedly shaky ground.
