February 15, 2021 / in Blog, Tech Essentials / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

How to Say ‘Leave Me Alone’ without an ‘Opposite Shock’ A year ago, there was a sudden “shock” to the world that caused mass disruption in people’s normal routines, forcing an uncomfortable behavioral change for most. This pandemic-induced shift to an isolated work-from-home (WFH) routine should become a shibboleth once vaccines flow freely. But perhaps it wont. Over the course of the last year, we’ve all acclimated to our new routines, comfy chairs, lounging in between [...]

October 09, 2020 / in Blog, Registered Email™ / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

What is “Legal Proof”? Optimize! Panelists Share a Decade of Use in Courts In the early 2000’s, RPost coined the term “Legal Proof®” to describe what one received when they sent a Registered Email™ message.

Signs of the Times: Dealing with Lower Home Bandwidth and a Host of Other New Security Threats As 2020 plods along, new tech challenges I never thought we’d face are becoming realities.

Pig Latin Will Remain a Legal form of Encryption As today’s technological and political environments are becoming ever more polarized, it is useful once again the think about these trends in the context of America’s foundation—i.e. the reason for celebrating Independence Day in America.

Lease vs. Buy Decision – First Cars, Now Software

July 22, 2016 / in Blog, General / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

When it comes to getting a new car, one of the first decisions many consider is whether to buy or lease. Of course, there are pros and cons to either approach. Buying a car means you own it (and perhaps get positive feelings about owning it), and you have more freedom over its use; you aren’t subject to mileage restrictions, for example.

The Formula for Success in Internet Security

August 25, 2015 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

As we wrote in March in our blog, “If Only Hillary Clinton Knew About RMail,” one cannot ignore the need for both security and ease of use. The constant challenge for IT professionals and security experts is to balance security and usability. If the most secure system is too complicated or cumbersome to use, people will circumvent it. Once the official or corporate system is circumvented, security has devolved from professional (IT executive) to amateur (end user). [...]
