SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Intertrust® Technologies Corporation announced today that the company has launched its latest venture accelerator company, Kabuto, a workforce collaboration tool that securely integrates email, tasks, files, conversations, and external apps into a single cloud service that ensures user privacy and enterprise confidentiality policies.
Kabuto was unveiled today at DEMO Fall 2013 in Santa Clara, where it was one of 50 companies selected to demonstrate products in front of an audience of more than 500 investors, technology influencers, and media. In making his presentation, Kabuto’s Chief Executive Officer Tauseef Bashir, set Kabuto apart from the competition by stating that, “Kabuto doesn’t compete with other storage solutions. Our paradigm is improving communication across teams in one simple, elegant service.”
The Kabuto service, which works on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, is a modern communication and collaboration system where teams can work together at any place and at any time. Using Kabuto, team members can post updates, share and edit files, manage project tasks, and access data from online “workspaces”.
Kabuto is the result of several years of research and development at Intertrust’s technology accelerator. While built on dedicated disruptive technology invented for the service, Kabuto also leverages Intertrust’s vast portfolio of inventions in security and trusted distributed computing.
“If you have ever emailed a document, or stored it on Dropbox and asked ‘who else is going to see this,’ you should be using Kabuto,” said Talal Shamoon, Chief Executive Officer of Intertrust. “Kabuto will replace email and cloud storage as the way we share and collaborate, revolutionizing enterprise and consumer communication. It is transformative in its simplicity, yet secure and unrivaled in its trustworthiness - only those who need to see files and messages, actually do.”
Kabuto is available to enterprise and consumer customers starting today at www.kabuto.com. The commercial terms for the service are based on a modest monthly subscription fee with special terms available for enterprise customers.
Founded in 2013 by a world-class Silicon Valley team, Kabuto plans to revolutionize the way we work in the BYOD mobile age. The Kabuto service, which creates workspaces online, was designed from a mobile point-of-view, paying special attention to the user interface for maximum ease from PCs, tablets, and smartphones. Kabuto’s technology leverages the trusted computing technologies developed by its backer, Intertrust Technologies Corporation, and is currently wholly owned by Intertrust. Kabuto is named after the helmet used by a Japanese Samurai to remind mobile warriors going into business combat to protect what’s in their head. For more information, visit http://www.kabuto.com
