Nowadays, data breach can cause individuals or corporates a fortune. Modern business user needs a safe and secure mean of communication. Metalk, developed by Logicquest Techonology Limited, is a secure instant messaging application built for the high new worth individual to help them stay connected. Data is stored locally on the phone with 1024 bit RSA and 256 bit AES encryption. A normal home processor will take approximately 1500 years to crack the encryption keys. Pattern lock provides an added level of security to prevent unauthorised access to confidential chats. 5 unsuccessful attempts, and all chat history stored locally in the phone will be destroyed automatically.
SecureCom Media (Metalk’s global licensed operator) custom made a communication security solution for HNWI, a VIP package on top of the free app. Metalk has disproven the conventional belief of traditional internet capital and creates a workable revenue model: Pay for the security and privacy! The USD 29.99 package covers an emerging feature Whisper Mode, the Deceptive View and the passcode-protected Chat Backup feature. The Whisper Mode function allows its subscribers to send messages that are automatically deleted and put off the record for good after they were read, addressing the concern of many business and corporate users, who often had to send messages to people they do not entirely trust, and would very much like much of their discussions to be kept “off-the-record.” The Deceptive View function, probably the first of its kind, toyed with the simple idea of customizing the avatars and nicknames of friends, making it nearly impossible for prying eyes to figure out who you were talking to. Since its official launch of the VIP package in April 2015, and have in a short period of 2 months since the launch of its premium paid functions accumulated several thousand paid subscribers.

Metalk provides HNWI users a set of effective tools for business communications built on the foundational security that the application provides. These functions include the conduct and record of business meetings, the tracking and scheduling of events and the broadcasting of sensitive business information over the application. The chat minutes function allows you to save portions of any chat record for future reference and circulation. To manage your business activities, you can post upcoming events or view all the events open to you within your social circle. You may also set an event alert with a different time zone to keep track of all your events around the world.
Metalk has achieved a lot over the past year. Metalk was awarded the “Most Secure Mobile Application of the Year 2015” at the PT/Expo in September, and “Best Business Application of the Year 2015” at CIE in October. And is also a top100 grossing application in the social networking category of Apple’s App Store.
2015 is a crucial year for Metalk. It has allowed business individuals to communicate safely and effectively while managing their schedule. On the other hand, Metalk focuses its efforts on one niche group, and became the first IM app to earn the status of profitability with a unique and sustainable revenue model.
