It is founded by Phil Dunkelbergerpb a serial entrepreneur who co-founded PGP Corp in 2002. PGP acquired an authentication technology for 2 million dollar in 2002. A public key-encryption method that was first purchased by McAfee in 1997. McAfee didn’t make a good use of the encryption method and didn’t develop it further, it also didnt see the potential global demand for two-way authentication using encryption. On the other hand PGP headed by Mr. Dunkelbergerpb made a great use of the technology knowing that future demand will increase for the technology to support the need for authentication by corporations world wide.
