QuSecure releases first end-to-end post-quantum solution
(VentureBeat) Tim Query reported on post-quantum security company QuSecure release QuProtect in his latest Veture Beat article. IQT-News summaries the anouncement of QuSecure’s, quantum orchestration platform that can offer organizations end-to-end quantum network security and cryptographic orchestration.
QuProtect uses standards and compliance-based security architecture to offer users endpoint zero-trust endpoint management and quantum cryptography as part of an end-to-end security solution.
Founder and COO of QuSecure, Skip Sanzeri argues that organizations now need to shift approaches toward digital security and embrace quantum computing.
“Making this shift now is essential as advances in quantum computing will disrupt the global paradigm of political, economic, military, and societal systems, sometimes for the better but often for the worse,” Sanzeri said. “The world is facing the largest upgrade cycle in computer history as all our current public-key encryption must be upgraded to post-quantum since quantum computers will break this encryption (via Shor’s algorithm).”
QuSecure is competing against many other providers, including Sandbox AQ, a software-as-s-service (SaaS) provider that leverages quantum technology and AI to mitigate operational challenges, which recently spun off Google’s parent company Alphabet with 9 figures in funding.
It’s also competing with Quantum Xchange, a post-quantum provider currently valued at $59 million following a $13.5 million series A funding round last year, that offers a key distribution system called Phio Trusted Exchange, which protects encryption keys against post-quantum threats while providing post-quantum cryptography.
The key differentiator between QuSecure’s QuProtect tool and other solutions is that QuSecure’s offering isn’t solely a cryptography solution, but an end-to-end orchestration platform for quantum resilience with endpoint management capabilities.
