Canadian security company Zero Knowledge is scrapping a feature of its Freedom Network product that allows web users to email and post messages anonymously. However, in the light of heated debates regarding internet security and terrorist action, the company has denied it was under governmental pressure to do so. The company's co-founder, Austin Hill told Reuters the market for such a tool is just not big enough. With the latest version of its Freedom Privacy and Security tools, Zero Knowledge will be taking on the likes of Symantec and McAfee.
