It’s been months since the term “Zoom-Bombing” entered the cybersecurity lexicon as the ability to hack into video conferences.
Zoom has announced that they will introduce end2end encryption next week. Despite buying KeyBase in April they are still mostly relying on users to implement proper security protocol. However, what they have still failed to do is secure their servers and systems. If a breach occurs, then members are at the mercy of the hackers.
Even when they introduce their end2end encryption next week, the user will still have to turn on the E2E encryption on their end. I think we all have enough experience with people and cybersecurity to know that will not happen every time. If even one person doesn’t turn the encryption on, then everyone is at risk. Also, ZOOM will remain susceptible to ransomware attacks.
None of this effort is even close to good enough if the content of your video conference requires top secrecy or personal privacy.
Given all this, ZOOM has done well and has attracted millions of new users and has seen their stock price soar. However, as new competitors come into the market, they will have superior data security.
Helix22 Data Security
Other firms will be utilizing the perfect data security solution for video conferencing. The Helix22 data security SDK.
In Math We Trust
The Helix22 data security SDK does the following:
- Protects all data at rest, in use and in transit
- Renders unwelcome intrusions obsolete
- Secures all transmission in real time
- Eliminates human error
- Eliminates all malicious or interior attacks
- Reduces latency…which is critical for international conferencing
- Installs with 5 lines of code
- Runs on any platform
- Provides perfect future/forward secrecy
- Delivers “zero-knowledge” encryption
- Compatible with all cloud, 3rd party and vendor services
- Is quantum ready – so there’s no need to upgrade when the time comes
- Requires no user or employee training
- Exceeds all gov’t, financial and cybersecurity standards…in fact, we demolish them
- Meets compliance regulations
Helix22 delivers all this 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. ZOOM for example, uses 2FA and requires users to turn on the encryption. However, they are very weak as users control most of the security and as a result breaches will remain common.
DNA BindingTM & user2user (U2U) encryption
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 or someone gets in illegally, unless they are on a protected device they cannot access the conference or exfiltrate any data. 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 which is critical to video conferencing.
To us at BLAKFX, end2end encryption is a term of the past. The tech engineers at BLAKFX invented and patented a genuine user2user (U2U) encryption. We manage data security and transmission through the truly brilliant and also patented universal Helix22 key service. The Helix22 encryption originates on your network or device, not just when an 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. 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 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 user2user encryption (U2U) world, there is no opportunity ever for any data leak or intrusion.
This same protocol just described, can be the same with all 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 your partner firms 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 video conference 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.
Helix22 is Built on Success and is Quantum Immune
Our founders also founded Wickr, which is used by the US military and has never been hacked since its inception in 2012. Helix22 is several generations enhanced since then.
The Helix22 encryption is quantum computing ready so no need to redo all the data security methodologies in a couple of years when everything else becomes obsolete.
We have developed our data security products for the future in all of our engineering.
We like to refer to Helix22 as “22nd Century Data Security.”
