We show in this Letter that we have found a set of parameters in our model for the soft interactions at high energy, that successfully describes all high energy experimental data, including the LHC data. This model is based on a single Pomeron with large intercept δP=0.23 and slope αP'=0, that describes both long and short distance processes. It also provides a natural matching with perturbative QCD. All features of our model are similar to the expectations of N= 4 SYM, which at present is the only theory that is able to treat strong interactions on a theoretical basis.
