Your Mobile Device is a Major Data Security Problem

As Covid-19 has made working from home a normal occurrence and people are utilizing their personal devices more and more, the attack field for a data breach has grown exponentially. Even before the virus hit, Verizon (2020 Mobile Security Index) published a study indicating that 4 in 10 data breaches were through mobile devices.  Further research* indicates that high-risk vulnerabilities were found in 38 percent of mobile applications for iOS and in 43 percent of Android applications.

As hackers now have ubiquitous access to mobile devices the threat of a data attack is omnipresent and extends beyond your firewalls. The research identified that most companies allow mobile devices to access between 1/3 and 3/4 of their most business-critical information. Also, it is highly likely that most of your firms phishing filters are focused on email attacks and overlook text messaging and apps.

The Helix22 SDK was designed very much with the mobile device as a focus.  It is equally as effective on iOS or Android platforms.  Helix22 protects the data at the source itself unlike most other data security products that try to limit access.  This means, that with our DNA BindingTM, the encryption protocol embeds directly with the data itself.  Your data is always 100% secure. Therefore, even in the case of  a mobile breach, any data that is copied, downloaded, forwarded or saved is rendered useless.

At BLAKFX, we manage data transmission through the truly brilliant and patented pending universal Helix22 key service. The genius is that the Helix22 encryption originates on your device. By the time the data arrives to our key server, it is already encrypted so all we need to do is issue another key. This key will then only work with the receiving device, which generates the matching key required to open the data. In this protocol, we are truly a “zero-knowledge” server and even if subpoenaed, we can honor the request by just handing over the encrypted gibberish…as that is all we have.  Further, Helix22 also only use keys one-time and then destroys them. This way the data security is future forward prefect. Therefore, in our unique user2user encryption (U2U) world, there is zero opportunity at all for any data breach.

Our patented encryption we have developed is mutli-layered and superbly designed. It has proven to be unhackable. We have tested with MI5 and our founders developed Wickr, which since its inception in 2012 has never been hacked and is now utilized by the US military for their communications. Helix22 has been exponentially imagined and secured over that period.

As the data world moves more towards mobile devices, utilize a security product that is 100% secure.
