"Our numbers have doubled since the Sony attacks," Nathan Hecht, founder and chief executive of DSTRUX, said in a recent interview with CNBC.
In a world where electronic communications can lead to lawsuits or major public relations damage, the company's technology allows users to destroy emails they send and deny recipients future access to those messages. The platform—which recalls the self-destructing messages of "Mission Impossible" and "Get Smart" television fame—also prohibits recipients from taking screen shots of emails.
If someone does try to use the "print screen" function, a message pops up saying "that's not cool!," thus preventing access.
DSTRUX also blurs emails and allows the recipient to only see small portions of what they're sent at a time. The goal is to keep people from taking pictures of those emails that could lead to potentially damaging disclosures
