August 8, 2019 – PRESS RELEASE

TripleCyber Website Deploys

Today, TripleCyber® deploys its initial TripleCyber® website through three domain names: http://triplecyber.com, http://www.triplecyber.org and http://www.triplecyber.net.

Through TripleCyber® and TripleEnablement™ customers can retake control of their cyber-identity and decide how they want people to communicate with them through the internet. TripleEnablement™ protects customers, permitting them to communicate in either the public, private or the secured domain. In turn, this ensures the end-user’s ability to know exactly who and what they are communicating with at all times.

The internet was created by the U.S. Department of Defense as an open system to share ideas/resources through connected computers. The internet’s openness is its greatest flaw because bad actors (Cyber-Criminals) leverage the openness and lack of initial security design to compromise the users and computers connected to that system.

TripleCyber® is the only company with a unique Domain Name Registrar that uses blockchain infrastructure to guarantee immutability to TripleEnable™ security for domain names, cellphones and email communications, denying Cyber-Criminals their greatest weapon: anonymity.

"TripleCyber® returns the openness of the internet to consumers, by unmasking Cyber-Criminals, denying them the luxury of hiding behind anonymity” said TripleCyber® creator and RiVidium’s President/CEO, Manny Rivera. " TripleCyber® allows end-users to continue to navigate the internet while restricting communication vectors for the user who wants 100% assurance. TripleCyber® safeguards communication as intended, allowing commercial or public communication when you want, while also allowing verifiable private/secure communication with known entities when you need protection.”

TripleCyber® is in Beta Stage Testing. Preliminary release is slated for: July 2020. Full release is scheduled for January 2021. TripleCyber® was conceived by Manny Rivera and is based on his nano-sensor research Doctorate studies at George Washington University; visit our website: http://triplecyber.com to download the nano-sensor research papers.
