Cyber attacks are becoming the bane of governments and companies alike. Recently, search giant Google announced plans to potentially leave China following a series of cyber attacks on its email system.
A Virginia-based engineering research company may have the answer. InZero Systems has developed computer protection technology some experts claim is foolproof. The firm is presently demonstrating the system to the DoD, federal agencies and private industry.
The new technology essentially serves as two computers in one. Traffic received via the Internet is cleaned by the InZero Gateway Module computer and then sent into the other computer.
The system was previously tested by a series of outside experts and no one was able to defeat it. Gen. Wesley Clark, chair of InZero Systems’ advisory board, said:
“This is not just a conceptual solution to the threat of cyber terrorism. It is very real. It is eminently practical. It is affordable. And it is available now. Every agency and company that has tested, it has found that it cannot be compromised.”
“This is a vitally important development for our national defense and for the protection of this nation’s critical infrastructure,” he added.
Louis R. Hughes, principle founder of InZero Systems and former president of Lockheed Martin, said:
“Our technology is essentially what the administration and Congress have been calling for. It is a true breakthrough. This really puts the world’s hackers out of business. We are fundamentally changing the architecture of the personal computer to create an unprecedented level of security and control while preserving unlimited accessibility to the Internet and without compromising functionality.”
