Initially famous for their secure smartphones, BlackBerry has evolved into a company specializing in securing mission-critical data for governments, banks, and global enterprises worldwide and has protected more than 100 million users with 1 billion daily messages globally.
Rolo brings that very same BlackBerry technology into its message end-to-end encryption and cloud storage.
Messages are digitally signed, so that you're sure who sent each message.
Messages are End-to-End Encrypted (E2EE), so you know that only the intended recipients can read the message.
Messages are subjected to integrity signature checks, so that the message can't be modified in transit.
With BlackBerry technology, messages sent on Rolo are protected from being viewed and modified by anyone other than the sender and intended recipients.
"Message Encryption" is the process of using an encryption key to transform a readable text such as "here is my bank account number" into an encrypted one such as "!@#$%@$%^)^&*%", which is unreadable.
Without the encryption key, no one can decipher the encrypted message, thus keeping your readable texts, files, and pictures private.
Being simply "Encrypted" or "Encrypted in transit and/or at rest" is not the same as being "End-to-end encrypted".
"Encrypted in transit" means that the line between you and your service provider is encrypted. In this case, the encryption keys are shared between both parties.
"Encrypted at rest" means that your service provider encrypts the database where it stores your messages.
"End-to-end encrypted (E2EE)" means that encryption/decryption of your messages happens only on the devices belonging to you and your messages' recipients, while only you and your recipients have access to the encryption keys.
In our case, neither Rolo nor BlackBerry have access to your chats' encryption keys. This means that even though the encrypted messages transit through the internet and are stored in our cloud, nobody but you and your recipients can read them.
This additional level of security means that if you and the recipients maintain strict control and secure practices over the devices that send and receive messages, your private conversations can stay private FOREVER.
Rolo's integration of BlackBerry secure communications technologies enables us to meet the rigorous security demands of the most regulated organizations and industries, with standards and certifications such as:
