Your email is the root of your online identity, and if you’ve been enjoying the free use of cloud-based services at home or the office to handle your digital communications and hold your personal information, you’re leaving yourself open to data-breaches like those experienced by high-tech targets like Facebook and Google. If you’re interested in taking control of your digital privacy — emails, search history, passwords, credit card information, social security numbers, photos, and videos — a private email server from Helm is a great first step to a more productive online experience.
For starters, Helm will ensure your email, calendar, and contact services are under your control to ensure that companies aren’t profiting from your information — or handing it over to a government entity for mass surveillance. The device supports standard protocols, allowing you to use familiar email clients like Outlook, the Mail app, and Mozilla Thunderbird. Helm’s annual subscription service also includes 120GB of data storage, annual domain registration for access anywhere in the world, and a offsite storage for encrypted backups that only you can access.
