As social media networks have become more prevalent, so have companies’ concerns about privacy. In response, Wave Systems, a public company based in Lee, Mass., has introduced a Web service called Scrambls that allows users to control who sees their messages on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. The service, designed for both enterprises and consumers, also can encrypt emails.
A plug-in that individual users install into their Web browser, Scrambls is designed to work with a wide variety of browsers, including Firefox, Chrome and Safari. The company, which has operated in the enterprise security space since 1988, plans to add more API partners and release plug-ins for various email servers.
