IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Secure Channels, Inc., an innovator in the development of patented encryption technologies that protect data in motion and data at rest, today announced that none of the 155 hackers at the recent Black Hat USA 2014 Conference in Las Vegas who participated in a "Can You Break This" contest were able to hack the company's new patented PKMS2 Encryption Technology.
The company estimates that 75 percent of the 155 hackers who had to sign a 26-page agreement of the contest's rules did attempt to crack a secret encrypted file that held a virtual key to a 2014 BMW 320i Series Sedan courtesy of Irvine BMW. But when the conference closed at 5 PM on August 7, no one had cracked the code.
"It would take a supercomputer making 19 quadrillion calculations per second at nearly 30 times the age of the universe to break the encryption of Secure Channels PKMS2," said Richard Blech, CEO, Secure Channels. "Data breaches do not just reside at the perimeter. The most serious breaches come unsuspectingly from within. Protect your data with certainty by enveloping it with impenetrable encryption which leaves the thief with only useless bits and bytes."
Secure Channels' PKMS2 (Pattern Key Multi Segment, Multi Standard) technology uses available FIPS-certified third party encryption libraries to produce "unbreakable" communications and data files through:
