Google last week revealed that it was coordinating efforts with global partners to hand out free USB security keys to 10,000 elected officials, political campaign workers, human rights activists and journalists, and other users considered to be at high risk of getting hacked.
Google’s attempt to put the onus on users for data security is wrong.
This announcement helped bring attention to the benefits of hardware-based authorization keys and tokens as a more secure version of two-factor authentication — especially as crafty cybercriminals are becoming increasingly effective at bypassing traditional 2FA.
Still, asking employees and user organizations to incorporate physical keys or tokens into their regular authentication process will require — like many other aspects of security — a certain amount of culture change, training and buy-in. None of which is going to happen.
Computerization is supposed to make the user experience simpler, not more cumbersome. Plus, their is always the regular expectation that keys will be continually lost or left on the kitchen counter. Plus, from a design standpoint, the physical key is pretty bulky and certainty won’t fit comfortably in your pocket.
Helix22 data security SDK is invisible to users, requires no training and installs with just 5 lines of code.
To us at BLAKFX, trying to keep attackers from data is a fool’s mission. Any attempt to utilize passwords, 2FA, bio metrics are meaningless. They might make it a bit tougher for attackers, but the end result is the same…once the breach occurs all your data can be stolen.
Credential verification or USB keys do not protect data. Phishing attacks will continue and users or employees will continue to fall for them.
What we can do though… is prevent the loss of any data when credential verification processes fail.
The Helix22 offers 100% data security on your firms data while it is at rest, in use or in transit. It also works on every CSP and on any device or in any programming language.
Here is how HELIX22 works.
BLAKFX provides Device-2-Device (D2D) Encryption with multi-patented DNA BindingTM cryptography that embeds with the data itself. The key exchange originates on an encrypted device (not in software or an app) and is augmented with a genuine “zero-knowledge” universal key server. The recipients device must have Helix22 installed in order to exfiltrate the data. Therefore, we offer perfect data security with 100% compliance, in your control, at all times. This of course is the optimal scenario. Your firm controls full control over access to your data sets at all time regardless of who is accessing your systems.

With Helix22, this means that data is protected on your infrastructure, on any device, in he cloud or on any network…and is 100% compliant. Also, it means that no other service provider or 3rd party will be able to access data or have it breached. Compliance is controlled also 100% by your frim as all the keys are in your possession and/or generated by the BLAKFX key serer, which is 100% zero-knowledge.
What we understand better than anyone else is the new era of data security is one that requires new solutions. At BLAKFX, we understand that protection of your data requires that it be protected wherever it is. Whether on the cloud, in transit on a foreign network or on a trusted suppliers system. Data security cannot just be about protecting your own systems. Therefore, we know that the era of perimeter defenses is over as it is proving impossible to keep hackers from breaching the perimeter and accessing data. Also, E2E encryption based on old models of RSA cryptography will be obsolete when quantum computing becomes more widespread.
Helix22 delivers perfect security assurance due to our genius engineering team that has invented a new model for data security that required an innovative look at the problem. The approach we took was to protect the data itself. Almost all other data security products attempt to build a perimeter or being fanatic on user credentials. However, once the product is breached or a password is stolen, even if it is 2FA or encrypted, your firms data is in the clear.
You see, the Helix22 cryptography is embedded with the data itself through our inventive and multi-patented process of DNA BindingTM. Therefore, even if credentials are stolen the data cannot be exfiltrated. This means that all data is 100% protected regardless of the type of attack.
Another substantial advantage of Helix22, is that it protects all data whether at rest, in use or in transit. All communication apps for example, only encrypt data while in transit. Therefore, that encryption become useless for internal IT security or Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning experimentation. All data generated during these massive computing exercises is equally protected in real time. Plus, the latency period for the Helix22 is exponentially less than any other security product, so it actually contributes to faster processing times.
The Helix22 is easy to install and runs on all platforms, programming languages, networks and devices.
“In Math We Trust”
In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server so your private communications and transmissions remain completely top secret. Even in the event that BLAKFX were subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted content…as that is literally all we have. Helix22 also only use keys just one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique user-to-user encryption (U2U) world, there is no opportunity ever for any data leak.
The Helix22 data security SDK accomplishes the following:
- Protects all your firms data at rest, in use and in transit
- Renders ransomware threats obsolete
- Eliminates human error
- Eliminates all malicious or interior attacks
- Verifies original content i.e. minimizes the threat of impersonation attacks and deep fakes
- Reduces latency and optimizes 5G networks

- Meets all international compliance regulations
We can make all these claims as the tech engineers at BLAKFX invented and patented a genuine device2device (D2D) encryption. We manage data security transmission through the truly brilliant and also patented universal Helix22 key service. The Helix22 encryption originates on your network or device, not just when the app is opened. This means, that when data arrives to our key server, it is already encrypted so all it needs to do is issue another key. Signal and Telegram cannot claim this level of security. This key will then only work with the intended device, which generates a matching key required to open the data. In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server so your communications and transmissions remain completely top secret. Even in the event that BLAKFX were subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted content…as that is literally all we have. Helix22 also only use keys just one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique device-2-device (D2D) world, there is no opportunity at all for any data leak.
This same protocol just described, can be the same with all your 3rd party vendors and suppliers. It does not matter in the least what platform they are running or what device they are using or even the type of data, it is all 100% protected. We do however, strongly advise that all firms involved be utilizing Helix22 due to the nature of the data content. Helix22 can ensure that whatever data they are generating is protected as well.
Let’s take it a step further. Even if your organization were a victim of phishing, an internal attack or a victim of malicious open source downloads, there is no reason for concern. Any data that has been forwarded, downloaded, copied or saved cannot be exfiltrated. Period. We have the technology industries foremost data packets which are protected with multi-layered, military grade encryption algorithms that have already proven the ability to withstand penetration testing from MI5 and quantum computing attacks.
One final practical genius of DNA BindingTM is in that it is immediately compatible with whichever system or software you are utilizing. Therefore, any organization can forward information to another and then discuss it and there is immediate privacy.
