In an announcement made today by Xelleon PLC, it looks as though the United States is losing the data protection security war.
The news comes as Xelleon PLC has been approached by officials from numerous Middle Eastern countries whose number one concern is document piracy, leakage and theft.

"If any of these countries acts first to acquire Xelleon’s protection technology, it would give the Middle Eastern countries a substantial leg-up on the United States, as any document, audio transmission, video communication or data packet secured by Xelleon’s technology becomes unhackable, regardless of the software and piracy experts that any country would bring in to attempt to hack a Xelleon protected file." said
Dale Scott Marion, President, CEO Xelleon PLC. "Even if any country brought me in to attempt to hack the data, the simple fact is that even our company’s piracy protection experts would not be able to gain access to a Xelleon protected file because Xelleon’s unique encryption technology makes it simply impossible."
It's only a matter of time before many other countries get back to us which would put the United States in a very precarious position where numerous other countries around the world could become far more advanced in securing their government, military, police, and other very sensitive national security documents, and secret data transmissions.
Many news agencies in the United States have recently reported that websites, databases, banks, Fortune 500 companies and government facilities have been under attack by hacktivist groups and cyber criminals from around the globe, and are losing valuable, intellectual property, secrets, intelligence and sensitive information at an alarming rate.
"We want the USA to remain strong and protected against serious cyber threats and we wouldn’t like to think of the most powerful country in the world having the weakest line of defense against prying eyes of their enemies or even their allies," Marion said.
It was not made clear what stage the other countries were at in their decision to utilize the Xelleon protection technology only that it could be confirmed that there were
multiple parties using, testing and inquiring about price, licensing and potential exclusivity.
