German businesses are big users of PGP, according to Werner Koch, lead developer of GNU Privacy Guard in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The code and concept of GNUPG are closely related to those of PGP.

"Now those companies have real problems, because there are no more patches and updates for the product. So some of these companies are removing their PGP software and asking if we can support GNUPG for them."
