Decrypt the conversation and pick up the gold

Gold Lock : 08 December, 2009  (Company News)
Gold Lock has put out a challenge to break its encrypted mobile conversation to pick up a bounty in gold and a position in the company
Gold Lock wants more spies, hackers and professional communications eavesdroppers to try to unseat the company's position as a top provider of secure voice and data solutions. To make sure word hits the streets, the company has increased the reward to $250,000 in pure gold.

It was just a month ago that Gold Lock announced its $100k Gold Challenge. The company posted a sample encrypted telephone conversation on its web site and invited anyone to download and decrypt it. The company offered $100,000 in gold, as well as a position at the company, to the first person to send a transcript of the call. And while file downloads have been brisk, the company is turning up the heat.

The company reports well over one thousand downloads since it announced the challenge, but that's not nearly as many downloads as had been expected. By increasing the reward to $250,000, Gold Lock hopes to draw more challengers out of the shadows.

Gold Lock is well known as a worldwide provider of comprehensive end-to-end IT and cellular encryption solutions. "Since 2003 we have been telling everyone how our products provide unbreakable protection for their voice and data transmissions, but talk is cheap. So now we are putting our claims to the ultimate test by inviting anyone that thinks they have the skills to take us down," said Noam Copel, Gold Lock's CEO.

The increased attention doesn't worry him. "I don't think there is a chance at all that I'll be giving away the gold. No individual, group or intelligence agency has the skills, technology or time needed to defeat our technology," Mr Copel continued.

Gold Lock products utilize technology so powerful they have been licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Defence. For example, when protecting voice calls, Gold Lock automatically changes the keys multiple times for each call, a feature that makes it virtually impossible to zoom in on a specific set of keys and decrypt it. But despite the complex technology taking place in the background, the company's software and voice products require no technical skills to use. The company claims that if you can speak on a cell phone or upload a file to a computer, you have all the skills you need.

Increased threat levels around the world have made secure voice and data communications a necessary part of doing business in both the public and private sectors. Gold Lock's products protect their users from having sensitive business and personal information intercepted and used against them.
