LockLizard products use US Government strength encryption – the AES algorithm at it’s strongest strength, 256 bit. It would currently take today’s fastest computer approximately 149 thousand-billion (149 trillion) years to crack a 128-bit AES key. Even with future advances in technology, AES has the potential to remain secure well beyond twenty years.
In addition, we don’t use third party plug-ins to control access to your protected information. This ensures we are not open to weaknesses in the published APIs or security holes in the third party application. One of our competitors that uses this approach has been compromised and found the only way to prevent hacking of their systems was via the legal system and a court writ! Protected information is only decrypted for viewing in a secure, controlled environment, and are never made accessible in unprotected form. If a customer does not have a license they cannot view your protected information.
