Helix22 Protects Data at the Edge by Reducing Latency and Ensuring Data Security

As the name suggests, “edge” technologies consist of moving the hosting of computer services to the edge of the network, so that the process happens as close as possible to the people and devices that use the service. The goal is to significantly reduce latency.

Edge computing, therefore, happens in devices distributed across the network, in which any and every object can be made “smart” and connected, so that it can store and process data to enhance the delivery of a given service.

The core reason for deploying edge computing is a trend shared by virtually all industries: the explosion of data. As users increase their reliance on digital technologies, so is the amount of data they generate reaching unprecedented levels. All of this information can be processed and analyzed by businesses to improve their services, but it requires huge computational power.

Sending all the data that is created back to your servers or the cloud for processing is impractical and causes latency issues. By placing computing power nearer to the source of data, whether it is a smartphone, a PC, an IoT device or a sensor, the volume of information that is generated becomes a lot easier to handle.  In essence, the edge makes possible a world where every single object has the potential for generate information…information that can be extracted and used in real time.

In turn, this lets businesses innovate in a number of different ways. In retail, for example, in-store digital signs and interactive kiosks can help gather a better understanding of customers’ expectations and behaviors. Smart sensors and cameras coupled with AI-powered analytics can respond to touchless gestures and inform retailers on the effectiveness of a message or a display.

In industry, edge computing is also expected to revolutionize the working of the factory floor. The technology will enable the real-time processing of raw data generated by machines to improve predictive maintenance or check for defects.

Similarly, edge technologies can power AI-based robotics that are used in manufacturing to perform repetitive and dangerous tasks. Car manufacturer Audi, has seen a 100-times boost in its quality control check times since starting to deploy computing at the edge, with only 18 milliseconds of latency – which has in turn reduced labor costs by up to 50%.

Edge computing, therefore, comes with the ambitious promise of significantly reducing latency in all sorts of applications and use-cases, which in turn will unlock innovative services in many different industries.

Still, despite market enthusiasm, it’s perhaps not entirely surprising that businesses are not focused on edge computing yet. For all the excitement, the technology remains immature, and viable business models making use of connected devices and internet of things devices at the edge of the network are still in the making. This is in part due to technical challenges: for example, edge computing is highly reliant on faster connectivity, which is why it is often portrayed as going hand-in-hand with 5G connectivity.

Another significant deterrent to uptake on edge technologies is the lack of cyber security. The Helix22 solves both the latency and cybersecurity problems.

Helix22 Delivers Ultra-Low Latency

Edge Computing is Reliant on Ultra-Low Latency Data Transfer and 5G

In order for full deployment of operations and Internet of Things enabled business, latency is critical.  The Helix22 data security SDK encrypts at a rate that’s 1000x faster than SSL/TLS. Therefore, it optimizes security while actually improving performance.

At BLAKFX, we have been working with the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite and defense sectors to deliver the latency and cybersecurity requirements that they absolutely require. Latency transmission from space will actually become the primary roadblock and/or competitive advantage amongst the competitors. Also, moving forward it is highly probable that the military and the LEO Satellite networks will be co-dependent on each other.

Cybersecurity is Minimal at the Edge

Another major problem that is deterrent to edge computing is encrypting and protecting all the data that is being accessed and generated.

The Helix22 data security, by its very nature, already offers perfect data protection for your data, and it is protected in real time wherever it exists.

Device-2-Device (D2D) Encryption by BLAKFX offers 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.

Enter BLAKFX. 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 Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and on any device or in any programming language.

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 try 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 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.

              Our Motto

       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

D2D encryption

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-to-device 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 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.
