You use instant messengers to chat with your friends or colleagues. Did you know that your messages are sent in cleartext over the Internet, regardless of their destination?

Simp Pro secures popular instant messengers (MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, AIM, Jabber, Google Talk ) by encrypting text messages and file transfers. SimpPro is the commercial version of SimpLite, currently used by more than 50,000 security-aware IM users worldwide.

Main SimpPro features:

Encryption of popular instant messaging networks
SimpPro encrypts simultaneously text messages for the following IM networks: MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, AIM, Jabber, Google Talk and most of their respective client applications.
With SimpPro, chat securely with your business or personal contacts.

Encrypted file transfers for MSN and ICQ/AIM
SimpPro transparently encrypts file transfers in MSN Messenger and ICQ/AIM. During a conversation, files sent are also automatically secured by SimpPro!
For a comprehensive confidentiality,it is also possible to completely restrict unencrypted transfers.

Secured recording of conversations
SimpPro can optionally save conversations in encrypted form on your harddisk.
Only the right key and passwords will give access to those records, which can then be directly displayed, sorted or exported to text format.
Advanced cryptographic options
SimpPro offers you the strongest and most recent encryption algorithms, such as elliptic curves or 4096-bit RSA, 128-bit AES and more. It is also possible to disable specific algorithms or set priorities between them.

Easy integration in Microsoft Windows domains
SimpPro can be remotely deployed in a Windows domain using the remote installation service (RIS).
Configuration can then be done easily using group policies (GPO).
SimpPro is now also fully compatible with the Microsoft PKI, simplifying both the end-user interface and the administrator's view of cryptographic certificates.

Plugin system to quickly add new functionalities
SimpPro features a plugin system that enables us to quickly develop new features and customize SimpPro on request. Several plugins are already included in SimpPro: the conversation recorder plugin and the PGP compatibility plugin.
Others will soon be released, such as a file encryption module that will make the power of Simp available for standard file encryption.

Compatibility
SimpPro requires a PC-compatible computer with the Microsoft Windows ME or higher operating system.
SimpPro is compatible with the four major Instant Messaging networks (MSN, Yahoo!, ICQ, AIM, Jabber, Google Talk) and their respective client applications. Most alternative clients are also supported (Trillian, aMSN, GAIM, ...).
