Cybersecurity often appears too dense for the average consumer to understand, which can create a divide between security haves and have nots. In an attempt to address the divide, Nadim Kobeissi — the creator of Cryptocat— has created Peerio, an encrypted productivity suite that aims to let users encrypt everything easily.
Peerio is a desktop client, available for Mac, Windows and as a Chrome extension, which provides email, IM and file transfer features. All of these features are end-to-end encrypted, and reportedly inaccessible to all.
The encryption is rather innovative in the way it handles the users decryption key.
