- Umm OK, let’s be honest with you, the websites and e-mails of the state is hosted on the servers of Global Crossing. Global Crossing is the leading vendor of information to the NSA, so all of the state they are giving to the NSA. Tip THIS SUPPLIER beat it. The website of the Presidency of Peru and the mail server are hosted in the country the United States, as may be possible that even this after U.S. intelligence continues to operate in that country. Mr. “Mirko Repetti” GLOBAL CROSSING current PERU manager is a charlatan to tell all your customers that provide security for your data when you do.
