Shazzle’s mission is to allow personal smart phones and other devices to connect in a peer-to-peer network that delivers privacy to communications and transactions. The company’s first product is ShazzleChat, a private messaging service that uses the sender’s smart phone as the mail server, avoiding the Web and so frustrating surveillance by governments and tech giants. Later this year the company will add private, encrypted email to the free service. Mr. Boyle has received U.S. Patent 12/176,747
for software architecture that harnesses peer-to-peer networking to facilitate data transfer in secure and private communication. He is also listed as Co-Inventor on four additional Shazzle patents, including a patent pending on a decentralized internet, working through Shazzle’s peer-to-peer network, and another for a fraud protection product, Trusted Customer, that will be added to the Shazzle suite of products shortly.
Mr. Boyle began his business career by founding the real estate development company Simsbury Associates
which has developed a wide range of residential, commercial, and historic restoration projects with a combined asset value approaching a billion dollars. He later added Landmark Senior Living
, a privately held operating company for delivering services to seniors, as well as Landmark Recovery, a national company focused on addiction treatment for both the insured, and the uninsured.
