Gold Lock offers military-grade secure mobile communications for Symbian and Windows Mobile. They tout their service as unbreakable, and to prove their point they are offering a $250 000 bounty in pure gold to anyone who can decrypt a phone call that can be downloaded from their website.
Gold Lock says their products utilize technology so powerful it has been licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, yet despite the complex technology taking place in the background, the companyâ€™s software and voice products require no technical skills to use.
â€œSince 2003 we have been telling everyone how our products provide unbreakable protection for their voice and data transmissions, but talk is cheap,â€ says Noam Copel, Gold Lockâ€™s CEO. â€œSo now we are putting our claims to the ultimate test by inviting anyone that thinks they have the skills to take us down.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think there is a chance at all that Iâ€™ll be giving away the gold,â€ says Copel. â€œNo individual, group or intelligence agency has the skills, technology or time needed to defeat our technology.â€
