QuintessenceLabs Introduces New Quantum Entropy Management Solution
(Benzinga) QuintessenceLabs has formally expanded their suite of quantum security solutions, introducing the qStream Plus™ entropy enhancer to their growing portfolio. qStream Plus combines the power of the world’s fastest quantum random number generator qStream, with software that seamlessly and automatically enhances the level of entropy in your network. qStream Plus solves entropy starvation once and for all, and delivers true Entropy as a Service (EaaS) within your network.
Without strong and fast entropy, networks cannot be truly secure. Solving the challenge of entropy starvation is the next vital step in building a quantum-safe and high-performance information infrastructure. NOTE: Quintessence Labs has a complete blog post here discussing entropy and why it is so important.
QuintessenceLabs developed the concept for the qStream Plus entropy enhancer appliance while working with one of their partners, whose large number of systems — virtualized and physical — struggled to get entropy, impacting performance and security. The QuintessenceLabs team were able to leverage its world leading quantum random number appliance qStream, delivering 1 Gbit/sec of full entropy true random, and pair it with novel entropy enhancer software. This entropy enhancer constantly monitors the level of entropy in your network and tops it up to safe levels, that you define, whenever needed. With qStream Plus, there is no longer the need to compromise between safety and speed, and you will never run out of entropy — making entropy starvation a thing of the past.
“QuintessenceLabs has deep expertise in driving quantum innovation, to make sensitive information safer today and prepare our cyber infrastructure for the threat of quantum computers,” said Dr. Vikram Sharma, Founder and CEO of QuintessenceLabs. “We are delighted to be announcing our qStream Plus offering, making it easy for organizations around the globe to access the world’s fastest quantum random number technology.”
