Webcloak: An Open Letter to Sony Pictures Chair Amy Pascal Regarding Cyber Security

Irvine, California, UNITED STATES

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is from Martin Dawson, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Webcloak, LLC:

Ms. Amy Pascal
Sony Pictures Studios
10202 W. Washington Blvd.
Culver City, California 90230

Dear Ms. Pascal:

The unprecedented cyber-attack on Sony Pictures is an unfortunate and outrageous breach of your studio's intellectual property, as well as an embarrassing exposure of your and other Sony employee's private communications.

The attack by the so-called "Guardians of Peace," whether they are agents of North Korea or simply sympathizers of Kim Jong-un's despotic regime, is unprecedented and their aggressive tactics are truly frightening. We sympathize with you and all those affected by this cyber terrorism, including Seth Rogen and James Franco, whose film "The Interview" has been shelved as a direct result of the attack.

And while the damage inflicted by the Sony hack is significant, and will leave lasting scars, this unfortunate incident does highlight the important matter of cyber security. Indeed, this high profile attack on Sony can serve as a turning point for our society, which is increasingly reliant on the Internet.

While the FBI and purported cyber security experts have claimed that the North Korean attack on Sony was incredibly sophisticated, it would have been thwarted by an ingeniously simple device that we are preparing to bring to market – Webcloak.

Webcloak is a USB device that provides a self-contained Internet environment, providing users with the ability to anonymously browse the Internet secure from the risk of viruses, data theft or identity theft. The device's proprietary software, including SafeWeb, SafeVault, SafeKeeper and SafeCloud, provides a secure mechanism for browsing, storing files, protecting passwords and storing backups. It also provides anti-spoofing protection and defends information that travels to and from the Internet with powerful encryption.

Essentially, simply having Webcloak installed in a computer creates an impermeable barrier between the computer and the Internet, providing anonymity and security. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss the utilization of our revolutionary cyber security technology. The damage caused by the attack on Sony cannot be undone – but we stand ready to help Sony transform itself from the most notable victim of a cyber-attack into the standard bearer for a new age of cyber security.

All the best,

Martin Dawson
