San Antonio Based Vysk Communications Surpasses 10K Downloads of Smartphone Security Apps

(San Antonio, TX) -- Today, San Antonio based Vysk Communications announced its suite of secure apps had surpassed over 10,000 downloads on the iTunes App Store. With the Vysk Private Gallery app, photos and videos are not only encrypted on your smartphone, but also in the cloud. If hackers were to access your iCloud account, your photos would still be safe, protected by Vysk encryption. Vysk Private Text makes your text conversations private and secure with end-to-end encryption, which prevents hackers or anyone else from accessing your private text messages, your Vysk contact list, or shared photos.

“Smartphone users can rest assured knowing their conversations, texts, personal photos and videos are safe and secure with our quality Vysk apps and smartphone cases,” said Co-founder and CEO of Vysk Communications, Victor Cocchia. “Our combination of software and hardware provide the ability for everyone, everywhere, to experience privacy.”

Known for its evolutionary privacy technology, Vysk Communications combines patented hardware -- such as in its QS1 that has its own dedicated hardware processor, audio processor, its own speaker, separate microphone, camera shutters and patented microphone jammers -- with encryption software apps to provide superior levels of privacy. The result is an everyday, non-intrusive, and easy-to-use solution that can be used for any application of business or personal use.

“This is just the beginning for our company and our products,” added Cocchia. “With the recently announced release of our EP1 case exclusively for the iPhone 6, Vysk Communications will remain the leading manufacturer of private secure communications solutions.”

Victor Cocchia is Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vysk Communications, a San Antonio, TX/San Francisco, CA based company developing the most evolutionary privacy technology on the market. Victor is an Army veteran and Columbia University graduate.
