YOUR DATA WILL BE STOLEN
Bad actors and hostile nations are intercepting and stockpiling corporate and personal communications. The imminent arrival of quantum computers will render the encryption protecting those messages useless.
Stolen trade secrets, I.P., financial details, customer data, patented formulas, M&A details and other sensitive information will soon be exposed and leveraged against its rightful owners.
7Tunnels patented encryption protects your communications
when you are most vulnerable
Quantum computing is the most serious threat to modern-day technology infrastructure:
- As quantum computers advance with more q-bits, mathematics-based encryption solutions become increasingly vulnerable
- Advancement in quantum computing will go unannounced, enabling once secure information to be compromised without warning
- Proposed methods for “post-quantum” or “quantum-resistant” encryption methods that rely on mathematical equations will not solve the problem
Every 39 seconds there is a data hack (Security Magazine, 2017). In 2017, The World Economic Forum estimated the economic cost of cybercrime to be $3 trillion worldwide with anticipation it will reach $6 trillion by 2021 (Morgan, 2017). Cybercrime is the world’s most profitable criminal enterprise with cyberthieves stealing more financial value than that of the worldwide drug trade (Cybercrime Magazine, 2019). The global average cost per data breach is $3.92 million, and the average breach size is 25,575 records (IBM, 2019). Attacks are happening constantly, and with greater frequency to computers with Internet connections. 94% of organizations are using sensitive data in cloud, big data, IoT, data centers or mobile environments, creating new attack surfaces and new risks for data (Dickson, 2019).
Classified data, proprietary intellectual property, and sensitive financial and personnel data are the largest targets and greatest wins for malefactors. Governments and corporations have been victimized by cyber-attacks, resulting in exposure of sensitive information, massive financial losses, tarnished brands, share-price reductions, and for some, bankruptcy. As more organizations move toward cloud technology, the increase in data transmission creates a rising need for overall data security. While cybercrime represents a global threat, the impending introduction of quantum computing into the digital world will unleash unprecedented capabilities to steal or ransom proprietary and classified data and intellectual property, as well as disrupt personal lives, organizational operations, and government agencies.
“The day a big quantum computer is built, all the cryptography we are using today is dead,” stated Dr. Christopher Petit from the University of Birmingham, UK. “To crack encryption, all you need is one working quantum computer under laboratory conditions,” says Andersen Cheng, Chief Executive of Post-Quantum, a cybersecurity company. Mr. Cheng likens it to building an engine and gearbox as compared with manufacturing an entire car. “A lot of nation states are building quantum computers and they just need a working engine to start cracking encryption,” he says.
Recently, China broke ground on the $11 billion National Laboratory for Quantum Information Sciences in the Anhui Province and began construction of a quantum fiber link that will eventually connect the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Jinan, and Hefei. The Russian Quantum Center, which is a project of the private and government funded Skolkovo Institute in Moscow, has spearheaded research that has led to critical breakthroughs in general quantum computation and qubit (the basic unit of quantum information) entanglement. “All over the world, research institutes, universities, and businesses are in a race against the clock to develop appropriate solutions and stopgaps to forestall a Quantum Pearl Harbor that overwhelms the world’s leading encryption systems” (Herman, 2018).

Our subscription-based devices pair easily with existing wireless networks without impacting transmission speed or adding latency.
Over the course of history, ground-breaking innovations have been met with a variety of skepticism, limited vision, ego and arrogance. Examples are easily conjured though a few easy ones include the light bulb, the portable computer, even the Enigma machine. And yet, all had a global impact on our lives. Eschewing ego and arrogance, the 7Tunnels team focused on creating a new level of cyber encryption to help protect the world of data transfer and storage from a pending threat: quantum computing.
Along the way, some “experts” have tried to refute the power of 7Tunnels encryption by tagging it to old-school ideas and methodologies, particularly those surrounding the venerable concept of the One Time Pad. It is human nature, and always easier, to write-off innovation than to embrace change and discover a better solution. It is with this in mind that we present a true advance in the world of encryption – one that uses the concept of the One Time Pad as a jumping-off point, not the method, for a more secure tomorrow.
7Tunnels implements symmetric key cryptography using a stream cipher where the keystream uses True Random Numbers that are only used once, a.k.a. a One Time Pad (“OTP”). Recent advancements in hardware and memory technology, along with new patent pending processes based on well-known signal processing / mathematical techniques, have given OTP technology new life. This encryption/decryption methodology is no longer cumbersome to implement nor impractical. Physical key distribution challenges of the past have been solved. 7Tunnels technologies are a significant advancement of “One Time Pad” encryption and should not be lumped into discussions of conventional OTP methodologies. With 7Tunnels technology, the resulting cryptography is better than quantum resistant, it is quantum secure. 7Tunnels technologies ensure privacy via well-known confidentiality techniques. This claim can be verified both mathematically and practically.
