VaultletSoft Stands with Human Rights Defenders in Announcing "Project Autonomy"

For some people, using secure email can make the difference between safely and successfully defending Human Rights or ending up jailed, tortured, or worse. The problem for many is the scarcity of easy-to-use software written in their native language.

Dec. 10, 2009 - PRLog -- Washington, D.C.  – VaultletSoft has decided to show its solidarity with Human Rights Defenders worldwide on this day by announcing the kickoff of “Project Autonomy” whose goals will be two fold:

1) Provide and maintain the technical infrastructure necessary to facilitate free and/or low-cost and easy to use secure communication (email, chat, etc.) between Human Rights Defenders (HRDs), their colleagues and parent organizations, journalists and other interested parties.

2) Create and maintain localized and localizable versions of this software such that any and all interested users and participants may use this software in the language of their choice.

In order to accomplish this, VaultletSoft will release an Open Source* version of what is currently called “VaultletSuite 2 Go, v2.9”.  This Open Source version should be published for the first time in the Spring of 2010, once sufficient organizational preparation has been achieved and v3.0 of the VaultletSuite 2 Go has been developed.  

In order to better support “Project Autonomy”, VaultletSoft Inc. will spin off its Human Rights and NGO activities into an independent non-profit entity called “Valeso.org”.  This name is a contraction of VaultletSoft with the addition of the “.org” domain suffix which denotes its non-profit orientation.  

VaultletSoft's President, R. P. Ruiz, calls for all those with translation, cross-cultural organization, and technical skills to:

“...roll up their sleeves and support the important, and often dangerous, work of Human Rights Defenders world wide by actively participating in Project Autonomy”.

Ruiz, and exists to make it easy for individuals and organizations to protect and control their valuable information.  VaultletSoft is the creator of the “VaultletSuite 2 Go”, which employs industrial strength Open Source cryptography to provide one-click protection for your email, passwords and files in a portable, multilingual package on Windows, OS X, Linux and Solaris.  VaultletSoft: Your bytes are your business.  Our business is keeping it that way.  Website: http://www.vaultletsoft.com
