(IndustryUpdate.au) An Australian cybersecurity specialist has announced the its quantum resistant network encryption capability, protecting sensitive government and business network data against the emerging threat of quantum computing.
Senetas’s Quantum evolution enables customers to combine both conventional and quantum safe encryption in a single platform and provides a secure transition to a future quantum-safe world.
Universally regarded as the most significant threat to cybersecurity in history, quantum computing in the hands of bad actors will render today’s encryption inadequate.
Senetas CEO, Andrew Wilson, said that as quantum computing becomes a reality, organisations around the world should develop a quantum security strategy and start planning to implement quantum resistant encryption sooner rather than later, to be certain network data is secure for the long-term.
The advent of the world’s first practical quantum computer will render today’s conventional public key encrypted infrastructures unsecure, making sensitive information vulnerable across governments’, defence agencies’, and businesses’ public and private networks.
“Today, to decrypt conventionally encrypted data could take thousands of man-years using the most powerful computers available. In the future quantum computers will enable decryption of that data in a matter of seconds, minutes or hours. Good cybersecurity demands that data be secure for the very long-term.
Senetas quantum resistant security is available to all current and future customers whom use the company’s crypto-agile encryption platforms.
