BOULDER, Colo., May 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reaching millions of viewers on the Fox Business Network, eCrypt Technologies (OTCBB:ECRY) CEO Brad Lever appears on Today's Business Report to discuss the risks of cybercrime and the products eCrypt is developing to help businesses and individuals battle this growing global concern.

Cybercrime is one of the largest problems the world faces today, costing US businesses in excess of $1 trillion annually. The threats are various and widespread, and are rapidly transcending yesterday's techniques and technologies, forcing businesses to be more reactive than proactive. A key element to combating cybercrime is securing communications using encryption. Existing solutions however are costly, and require IT resources to implement and manage, and don't protect businesses from internal threats such as unscrupulous employees.

In a special segment on Today's Business Report airing on the Fox Business Network on Sunday, May 15 of 2011, eCrypt's CEO Brad Lever outlines the realities of the problem and how eCrypt products offer a practical option to individuals, and businesses large and small to proactively defend against threats such as identity theft, data leakage, and corporate espionage.

"People need to know that falling victim to cybercrime is not a matter of if, but a matter of when and to what scale," commented Rear-Admiral Jay Cohen, member of eCrypt's Board of Directors. "This is the reality. eCrypt is a pioneer in their approach to securing communications – a cornerstone of cyber security – by taking the complexity out of a complicated technology."

eCrypt solutions use military-grade encryption while maintaining simplicity. Easy to use and affordable, they do not require any IT support or resources to deploy or manage, enabling businesses to realize an immediate return on their investment.

The Today's Business Report segment will air on Fox Business Network, on Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 5 PM EDT and will be re-broadcast on other partner stations at a later date. To locate the channel in your area, go to www.foxbusiness.com/channel_finder.html .
