Hulbee Launches Only Privacy-First Search Engine Secure From NSA, EU And Data Miners

Delivers the power of semantic search to consumers in the U.S., While offering a safer alternative that doesn’t collect user data

EGNACH, Switzerland, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Hulbee, a Swiss technology company with more than 15 years experience delivering enterprise-grade search and data analytics to leading European corporations, today launched the most secure, privacy-first search engine. Leveraging semantic search algorithms, Hulbee provides users with a means to find what they’re looking for, even when they’re unsure of the precise phrase or term to input.

Hulbee maintains unprecedented levels of security not offered by any other privacy-based search company because it has its own data center in Switzerland, so all of its information is safely stored away from the National Security Agency in the U.S. and the European Union. The potential for breaches in security of the transmission of data via the cloud or from one site to another are also eliminated by Hulbee’s infrastructure platform.

“As we continue to see examples of data privacy intrusion on both a personal and corporate level, we realized our greatest strengths in the enterprise search arena could be highly valued by individuals and families,” said Hulbee CEO Andreas Wiebe. “In response to this demand, we developed Hulbee, a search engine that now gives users in the U.S. and abroad not only a safer alternative, but one built on 17 different algorithms developed during our 15 years in the enterprise sector, for more helpful, meaningful and ultimately safe results.”

Unlike other search engines, which deliver results based of what’s most often searched, Hulbee is based on semantic search, which focuses on the meaning of the word and on various themes associated with it. After sifting through data in 33 languages, the Hulbee search engine presents a collection of words presented in colorful thematic tiles on the screen, giving users a broad range of choices rather than just the most popular selections. For example, if a user searches for the word “bass,” tiles that refer to the fish, the musical instrument, the shoe manufacturer and other related terms surface, ensuring that even when a person doesn’t know the exact term to input, they can count on a word cloud of options that increases the chances of finding what they are looking for.

The Hulbee search experience includes:

  • No cookies or collection of private data
  • A clean user interface
  • Search results, supplemented by a word cloud of related themes or content, that more quickly deliver to users what they’re looking for.
  • The ability to categorize search results by web, images, video, and music content

Hulbee joins a crowded field as something markedly different: a technology company, rather than a software outfit, focused on information processing and analysis – not just simple search. Hulbee uses text analysis and document management technology developed over a decade and a half with private companies in Europe.
