ONLINE PRIVACY—U.S.July 13, 2011
Two venture capitalist companies have invested $5.2 million in a Cambridge, MA, company that provides online privacy services to Internet users, reports The Boston Globe. "Privacy is the next consumer Internet frontier," said one investor, while another touted the company, Abine, for creating a "one-stop shop for consumer online privacy." Abine's president, Bill Kerrigan, said, "Controlling our online privacy has become a universal issue: consumers want basic choice and control over how their personal information is tracked, collected and used."
