Companies are turning to encryption in order to protect their sensitive data, but many of the systems used can be cumbersome and don't necessarily offer total protection.
CipherLoc Corporation is launching a suite of data security solutions that eliminate the flaws and inadequacies in today’s encryption algorithms, adding an extra layer of protection to existing products, services, and applications.
"Modern day encryption algorithms are broken," says Mike Salas, VP of sales and marketing at CipherLoc. "Conventional wisdom states that well-known encryption algorithms -- such as AES -- are safe due to the fact that it would take thousands of years for a brute force attack to successfully crack the encryption key that is used to protect data. However, we can demonstrably show that this assumption is wrong and it is in fact possible to 'break' into encrypted files using plaintext-recovery techniques that do not rely on brute force attacks. The CipherLoc mission is to eliminate the flaws and inadequacies associated with today's encryption algorithms in order to fully and securely protect the world’s data".
CipherLoc works by splitting data files to be protected into multiple segments. Then, these individual segments each receive a unique one-time use encryption key -- using a randomized selection of encryption algorithms -- and are grouped into a variety of different lengths. Since segments are independent from each other and are individually protected, the CipherLoc technology isn't vulnerable to the attacks and vulnerabilities associated with encryption algorithms which operate on a monolithic block of data.
