Protect Yourself With the ŠtítMe Privacy Protection Platform

ŠtítMe, a next generation mobile privacy platform, released in the US, allows people to connect and speak via mobile telephone, all without revealing their actual telephone numbers to each other. This one-of-a-kind product also protects its users from third-party intrusions, allowing people to connect instantaneously while maintaining control of their privacy. Registered users determine who may call them, when they may call and can even choose to ignore callers or ensure they never call back. With ŠtítMe you never have to reveal your personal mobile telephone number again.

“With today’s digitally-connected lifestyles, where much of our life takes place via our mobile handsets or online, our every movement is monitored and personal data collected. ŠtítMe lets you reclaim your privacy, enabling you to speak with family, friends and business contacts with unmatched personal identity protection and control,” stated Gurtaj S. Padda, creator of the ŠtítMe platform and founder and chief executive officer of Boolean Tech, owner of the technology. “Even world leaders aren’t safe from prying “ears”. Boolean Tech believes personal privacy is a fundamental right. We therefore created the ŠtítMe platform from the ground up with a focus on providing individuals with the peace of mind that comes from enjoying personal communication in a reliable and private manner.”

Using a proprietary, secret algorithm, ŠtítMe offers unlimited, secure private communication channels with the crystal clear voice quality of a normal cellular call. The service is a toll-quality telephony service (not Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP)) and its technology allows it to be mobile handset, as well as telecommunications carrier, agnostic.

Boolean Tech built the ŠtítMe platform around the core fundamental principle of privacy. This right is not only for those who can afford and understand technology, but for all.

A simple online registration process brings users one step closer to total privacy protection. The next time an outgoing call is made the recipient will view a unique ŠtítMe-protected phone number instead of the caller’s personal mobile telephone number. This next-generation privacy platform automatically assigns a unique ŠtítMe-number to every contact in the user’s contact list. This unique, privacy-protected number works only between the caller and the recipient, and is the only way for the caller to be contacted by the other party. The same applies if another ŠtítMe user were to call the user; the number he uses would have been allocated specifically for him to call you and no one else. Each set of two ŠtítMe users - caller and recipient - can only get in touch with each other through their unique ŠtítMe-protected numbers. That means no third-party can contact the user, even if they obtain his unique ŠtítMe number. This ensures privacy is never compromised and actual mobile phone numbers are never revealed. The numbers allocated are for life of the subscription.

ŠtítMe platform technology is the only one of its kind in the world, which is linearly scalable to the extent that it can extend to connect every American to every American on a one-on-one relationship basis. It fundamentally changes the entire paradigm of telecom numbering.

There are no limits on how many ŠtítMe-protected connections a user can have, or the duration of calls. Unlimited connections are guaranteed, thus enabling the user to secure his entire contact list and move it to the privacy-protected ŠtítMe platform in just one click.

For the first time in telecommunications history, mobile telephone users will be truly able to control the privacy of their mobile phone conversations – via ŠtítMe. The platform empowers users with the ability to sever their secure connections with another ŠtítMe user simply by deleting that user from the contacts list. Once that’s done, the other party will no longer be able to contact the user on his unique ŠtítMe number. The platform also allows users to define when and at what time calls can be received and when they do not wish to be disturbed.

“The goal of the ŠtítMe platform is to make the use of personal mobile telephone numbers obsolete,” said Gurtaj Singh.

In line with the principle of providing privacy for all, Boolean Tech has made the ŠtítMe platform available at an affordable monthly fee of US$3.49. This provides users with unlimited one-on-one connections and unlimited talk time.

"Štít" is a Croatian word that means "Shield". Hence, "ŠtítMe" means, "shield me," reflecting the company’s goal and ethos of shielding its users and ensuring a private one-to-one connection within the shield of total privacy.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

This Internet of Nouns trend is still in the early stages and many of our already connected gadgets do provide human benefits over the typical infotainment. Internet of Things or IoT. You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
