Secure Channels Inc.

Secure Channels Inc., a company offering security products that use 'patented' encryption made with bold claims, has questionable morals and tactics. Richard Blech (CEO) has a checkered past after being involved in an SEC lawsuit over questionable financial practices, and has moved into the Information Security arena. To prove their products secure, the company set up challenges to crack their encryption. According to several respected industry veterans, the challenges were designed to be unbeatable, not the encryption being used. After inviting this review from the industry, Secure Channels opted to attack critics via sock puppet Twitter accounts and bogus DMCA requests. In a thorough review of the company, Brian Krebs shows that very little of what they claim seems to hold water.
