New Funding; Supports Growth Initiatives and Research & Development

(TEL AVIV: December 17, 2015) NURO Secure Messaging LTD, a cognitive enterprise-grade secure group-messaging platform designed for employees and external partners to communicate in a controlled and compliant private messaging environment, today announced the close of its first series seed-preferred stock offering. “As secure messaging platforms become a priority for businesses, NURO Secure Messaging is uniquely positioned to lead the marketplace for trusted messaging solutions for private and public sectors around the world,” said J.R. Smith, co- founder and executive chairman. “This first round of financing will give us the necessary resources to grow our product and brand on an international scale.” Designed for corporate employees and trusted external partners, NURO is the only secure group-messaging platform that can analyze patterns in messaging and provide the transparency and predictive analytics that organizations need to ensure that their business communications stay in the workplace and that breaches (wether intentional or not) are prevented in advance. NURO is also the only group-messaging platform that provides four layers of security: at the user’s device, encryption during transit, encryption at rest, and behavioral and cognitive security that predicts breaches as well as prevents the distribution of malware. “As team-messaging begins to replace traditional email as the main method of communication within organizations, these same organizations need to govern their messaging with the same level of attention given to other forms of communication,” stated Smith. “NURO’s comprehensive secure-messaging solutions are the ideal platforms for highly regulated industries such as financial services, legal and government agencies, healthcare and homeland security, where secure and compliant communications are critical.” NURO Secure Messaging is led by co-founder J.R. Smith, former president and CEO of AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG). Smith is the co-author of the 2012 book Wide Open Privacy: Strategies for the Digital Life (IT-Harvest Press). He has published a range of white papers, blogs and articles on the future of privacy, children’s online safety, consumer dynamics and strategic innovation and often speaks as a thought leader on the future of privacy, consumer dynamics and disruptive innovation at conferences around the world.   About NURO Secure Messaging NURO Secure Messaging is a cognitive enterprise-grade secure messaging platform that enables organizations to create private mobile messaging networks for employees and external trusted partners to communicate in a safe, controlled and compliant environment.
