Replaces Problems with Email and Messaging Apps that Claim to be Secure

Mercury Workspace is filling the security gap in business communications that executives have been searching for.”

— Robert Wilson, CEO, Secured Communications

RENO, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2022 / — Since announcing the world’s first commercial implementation of Messaging Layer Security (MLS) in its communications platform in January 2022, Mercury Workspace, powered by Secured Communications, continues to be the FIRST and most complete MLS implementation among Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) competitors, and has now been even further enhanced with the latest cutting-edge security and increased productivity for the corporate market.

Developed in partnership with former senior FBI and global law enforcement leaders, the company has a legacy in security and is a world leader in its field. Its communications and collaboration platform has been used and trusted for over six years by counter terrorism and security professionals, and corporations worldwide, for sharing sensitive and private information.

Built on a foundation of security, Mercury Workspace is a suite of productivity tools that facilitate secure collaboration for vetted teams in corporate business and governmental organizations. The three fundamental components of the platform—fully encrypted messaging, file sharing of unlimited size, and HD video conferencing—are each secured using state of the art Multifactor Authentication (MFA) techniques to verify user identity, such as passkeys and biometric authentication, along with novel and next-generation encryption techniques. Moreover, the company will continue to lead the market in the execution of its quantum safe strategy.

Secured Communications’ CEO, Robert Wilson, said, “Mercury Workspace is filling the security gap in business communications that executives have been searching for. MLS has given us a distinct competitive advantage as it clearly positions us as the company best able to safeguard our clients’ communications. Though we have been the first to win the race to MLS, we continue to strive to be at the forefront of groundbreaking security solutions to protect clients against an expanding threat environment.“

Many popular End-to-End Encrypted (E2EE) messaging applications on the market today have made it easy to communicate in the global environment, but the protocols used in these apps lose their security integrity when more than two people or devices are in a conversation. This means even direct messages can be compromised. These messaging platforms use “sender keys”, which are sent WITH the message for the other participant’s devices to decrypt, easily exposing group conversations to ‘man-in-the-middle’ attacks, and once compromised, an intruder can passively listen in on conversations going forward.

Conversely, with Mercury, MLS provides an additional layer of security in which each message is encrypted and thus protected individually. Consider messaging as a “pipe” and MLS as unlimited pipes within that pipe, encrypting each message separately to keep them secure.

Mercury Workspace’s latest robust admin controls and rich text editor on both desktop and mobile app also allow corporations to be more productive and secure than email which has proven to be one of the most vulnerable forms of business communications with the high risk of business email compromise (BEC) due to phishing, ransomware and malware.

John Parkinson OBE, President of Secured Communications, said: “Security is in our DNA. In a world of uncertainty where data is being compromised at every turn, we have based our technology on a foundation of security that comprises all of the productivity tools you need into one simple fully encrypted platform to remove vulnerability altogether. Because of the ultimate security we offer, Mercury Workspace gives business leaders peace of mind, while mitigating the risk to their companies and clients.”

Online demonstrations of the new technology are available to businesses and organizations globally. To find out more and book an appointment, please visit:

New Children’s Picture Book Addresses Bullying, Body Image, Weight-Shaming and Self-Esteem, Opening Opportunities for Important Conversations Between Kids and Adults

'Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice,' by Author Daryl R. McCullough and Illustrated by Maryanne Smith, Sets Its Story Among the Enchanting California Redwoods, Where a Young Bear Fends Off Bullies and Self-Doubt and Regains Self-Esteem and Acceptance

New Children’s Picture Book Addresses Bullying, Body Image, Weight-Shaming and Self-Esteem, Opening Opportunities for Important Conversations Between Kids and Adults
'Chubby the Bear's Big Choice'

Author Daryl R. McCullough?s second book, 'Chubby the Bear?s Big Choice,' is set in a California redwood forest and tells the story of a sensitive, young bear struggling with bullies and his self-esteem issues.

Author Daryl R. McCullough’s second book, “Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice,” is set in a California redwood forest and tells the story of a sensitive, young bear struggling with bullies and self-esteem issues. This tender new book offers children, parents, and others of all ages an engaging story with several timely lessons on bullying, body image, weight-shaming, and self-esteem to be shared and discussed. Parents and children’s therapists have already heralded the book as an essential tool on the subject matter. Order now at Amazon, Barnes & NobleTarget or Archway Publishing.

Chubby is a fitting follow-up to McCullough’s award-winning first book “The Story of Tree and Cloud” — 1st Place, Pen Craft Awards; Finalist/5-Stars, “Reader’s Choice Book Awards”; 1st Place, “Firebird Awards”; and 3rd Place, “Best Children’s Book" and "Best Illustrated & Picture Book," Spring 2022, Outstanding Creator Awards. “Tree and Cloud” is a story about loss and managing grief, also set among California’s natural beauty, starring a California live oak tree named Folie and her new friend Puddle. “Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice” is similarly illustrated — not as a cartoon, but in a pure and naturalist style — by McCullough’s 80-year-old aunt Maryanne Smith, an acclaimed nature artist from Pennsylvania. 

“I grew up a chubby child who was bullied and weight-shamed by my peers and even by teachers and staff in grade school,” McCullough said. “I hope that by sharing this story, any child who might be dealing with these issues and feelings can find the strength to talk about it with their parents and learn self-care. 

“Of course, I also hope the story might thwart a bully or two, providing a teachable moment for them that our individuality is powerful, and compassion is paramount in any friendship,” McCullough said.

The story follows its hero, Chubby, a sensitive young bear cub with a rare talent for befriending honeybees and perhaps enjoying too much of their honey. Bullied by other bear cubs in the forest, Chubby finds solace by retreating up in the air, high in the branches of the redwood trees. One day, Chubby’s mood gets lifted by his forest friends — a sweet raccoon and a wise beaver — and Chubby embarks on a journey to reclaim his self-esteem, choosing to teach the other cubs a lesson along the way. Ultimately, Chubby takes the high road and shows others he is emotionally mature enough to stand up for himself while showcasing his strengths in a thrilling culmination of the tale, which ends happily for all.

Available now, the book invites readers of all ages to embark on a powerful journey of self-discovery and empathy and helps foster essential conversations and empower the next generation. 

“This magical story touched my heart and reminded me how, as a mother of two fabulous daughters, I always had my eye on bullying, particularly when it came to body shaming. Bullies teach us all how not to behave! Conversely, I taught my girls that staying connected with their bodies and loving and sharing their unique gifts with others were some of the healthiest ways to care for themselves and live fulfilled lives. Life is indeed a gift, so like Chubby, let’s all choose love, acceptance, and kindness!” — Melora Hardin, Emmy-nominated star (“The Office,” “Transparent,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Monk”)
