Static and Dynamic Data (database and digital transactions) are the cornerstone of Government, Industry and Commerce. Data stored as a record, file or field of information represents a revenue opportunity for business, organized crime and Hackers, not to mention state-sponsored theft and funding for terrorism.
Network Technology – The Reality
Network Security only provides a barrier to the limits of human interaction. Network Security barriers and policies are prone to the generation of a high volume of false positive hits. Consequently Administrators or their support staff experience frustration and ultimately a lackadaisical attitude may prevail in system policing and a reduction of standards, thereby opening the back door for Cybercrime. The fact is that IT Departments are usually underfunded, System Administrators are short staffed and IT staff frequently overwhelmed.
In general, Network Security infrastructure is effective against the public at large and novice Hackers. Data can never be 100% secure while System Administrators have access to EVERYTHING! The result is the ultimate demise of Network Security, as evidenced by successful Cyber thefts from amongst others, Home Depot, Walmart and the U.S. Government Federal Employee Database. Hackers are just like hunters, very patient and persistent, exploiting every weakness of their target and seeking opportunities of legitimacy to achieve their objectives.
The only truly effective method of defeating Cybercrime is keyless data encryption. If the Hacker cannot interpret the data he is defeated.
The current benchmark American Encryption Standard is AES 256 which requires the exchange of a public key. Hackers have cracked AES 256. The use of public keys is all that stands between a Hacker and the data they seek. Once inside a network it is only a matter of time before a key is acquired and once a Hacker acquires a key, all data is up for grabs.
Focus 4D advocates the installation of cost-effective keyless encryption technology as the first line of defense against Cyber threats rather than as a last resort and has invested in Impervio Technologies, a junior technology company with a suite of encryption technologies to secure both static files as well as files in transit.
- Impenetrable Cyber Security
FileSafe Technologies is a Canadian company that has developed the only truly universal suite of keyless,
impenetrable Cyber Security encryption solutions.
During the past six years, Company Founder and CTO, Dale Scott Marion and his team of Programmers,
have developed software that variably deconstructs data into bits and then randomly selects various encryption algorithms to uniquely protect each section of data. The process has been called Cognitive Scripting and utilizes a unique encryption algorithm for each and every data file protected. Cognitive Scripting achieves 5008 to 12,000 bit encryption for files at rest and up to 2048 bit for files in transit.
FileSafe encryption precludes the System Administrator from viewing any more than the file name.
