In every disaster there is an opportunity, and a market, for someone.

Confide, a smartphone app company, created an app, also called Confide, that makes top-secret business messages self-destruct, like Snapchat images. According to Confide’s website, “messages disappear after they’re read, ensuring all of your communication remains private, confidential and always off the record.”

Confide is trying to capitalize on the Sony hack by pitching its app to big companies, according to the Wall Street JournalGood timing.

The best part? The company is offering the service to Sony for free.
