Secure Channels Nets Two 2019 Cyber Defense Global Awards

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2019 / — Secure Channels has again been recognized as a leader in developing encryption solutions for the post-quantum world. Cyber Defense Magazine announced in its latest Global Annual Edition that Secure Channels won the Cyber Defense Global Award for 2019 in the category of Leader Encryption for its XOTIC® cryptosystem. Secure Channels’ Senior Program Manager Sindhu Aithal was also singled out for the Women in Cybersecurity award for her leadership and contributions to the company’s mission.

XOTIC’s Leader Encryption award comes on the heels of reports that the post-quantum reality is closer than previously believed, and is a reflection of Secure Channels’ dedication to battling present and evolving cyberthreats. “Cybercrime is responsible for tens of billions of records stolen and potentially trillions of dollars in damages, so we proudly recognize Secure Channels as an award-winning innovator of new approaches to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief of Cyber Defense Magazine.
Secure Channels CEO Richard Blech said of the Leader Encryption award, “It’s nothing short of an honor, and we’re proud that XOTIC has won yet another award. This recognition of XOTIC’s post-quantum hardiness, multi-environment agility and no-friction encryption really shows that cybersecurity teams across all industries are taking the rapidly-approaching quantum threats seriously.”

Aithal stood out from her peers for her leadership of Secure Channels’ technology teams as well as her handling of colossal development projects. Aithal’s accomplishments include the hands-on review of more than 250,000 lines of software code and single-handed deployment of more than 70 Unix server systems in the AWS cloud. Secure Channels CIO Michael Feinberg said of the Women in Cybersecurity winner, “Sindhu has been a rock for our team. She is an invaluable asset when I need a deep dive into data models, demonstration of complex network architecture or software engineering schematics produced. The oft overwhelming nature of her duties consistently takes her outside her comfort zone, but she’s someone I can always rely on to coach and mentor team members in a variety of roles. Her achievements are all the more impressive considering she joined the firm with a background in business and program management.”
While pleased by its industry awards, the team at Secure Channels is already looking forward to further developing its cybersecurity arsenal. Blech noted, “We’re not standing still for a second. In fact, we’ve adapted XOTIC to be ready across all industry types, including those with specific regulatory requirements. Hacking harms business, but we have the armor.”
