Qrypt releases two solutions to ensure quantum-secure encryption for businesses
Qrypt launched two new solutions: the Cloud Enterprise Portal, and Digital Quantum Key Distribution (Digital QKD). This expands on Qrypt’s Entropy-as-a-Service (EaaS) portfolio which provides high-quality quantum random numbers and the tools to ensure Everlasting Security. Enterprises can now integrate quantum encryption into their software services with tools that are fast, easy to use, highly scalable, and don’t require expensive infrastructure.
“Our Digital QKD and Cloud Enterprise Portal solutions are a big step toward the founding goal of Qrypt which is to help organizations protect their data and their consumers’ privacy,” said Kevin Chalker, Qrypt’s CEO, and founder. “As current data encryption practices are quickly becoming obsolete, the first businesses to integrate quantum encryption will find themselves at a competitive security advantage compared to their rivals.”
In a world where the threat of system vulnerabilities and data breaches is at a near-constant, businesses need to protect themselves and their customers’ data. All enterprises have some type of high-value data, and the security methods employed are often inadequate against determined attackers. For example, a bad actor could guess seeds based on previously unobserved patterns in what was thought to be a random source.
In addition, a “harvest now, decrypt later” attack could occur, where encrypted data is stolen in anticipation of quantum computers being able to decrypt it in the future. The effort to secure data can only be successful with high-quality random numbers, based on quantum effects, as they do not have an underlying pattern to exploit. An encryption system is also needed, that uses keys based on high-quality random.
Qrypt’s technology is perfect for any business that needs to protect and secure vital data, either by integrating a trusted QRNG into an existing encryption infrastructure or to implement a full cryptographic solution. The risk of a data breach is completely nullified as stolen data can never be forcibly decrypted – even by quantum computers. Qrypt’s solutions can be integrated into messaging and email platforms, file sharing services, and even network infrastructure for ISPs and financial institutions.
Qrypt’s Digital QKD enables quantum-secure encryption keys to be generated and distributed to any connected endpoint or device – providing businesses quantum-secure encryption even on the public internet. Through creating an authenticated network of QRNGs in the cloud, quantum secure encryption is made massively scalable and easier for businesses to deploy. It avoids the costly infrastructure requirements and limitations of on-premise QKD appliances, and instead shifts key creation to the cloud on the Qrypt Cloud Enterprise Portal.
“Sensitive data needs a high-security crypto environment where it’s done the right way,” said Charles White, CTO of Fornetix. “Qrypt has the right approach with their innovative cloud-based quantum entropy and sophisticated digital QKD. Their one-time pad technology allows organizations that need next-level data protection to stay ahead of the curve.”
The Cloud Enterprise Portal allows enterprises to employ quantum-secure random numbers into any in-house cryptographic key generation with improved speed and bandwidth. Whether leveraging classical or PQC, companies will be able to implement Qrypt’s technology to deploy vastly larger key sizes – up to full one-time pad systems – for their business applications. Additionally, this offering includes a full suite of enterprise features, like multi-tenancy, access control capabilities, and new security options.
“These solutions will empower DevOps and SecOps teams at any enterprise, including financial institutions, healthcare organizations, and government agencies with the essential tools to protect themselves from the security threats of the quantum age,” said Denis Mandich, Qrypt CTO, and co-founder. “Qrypt’s digital QRNG technology is incredibly sophisticated due to years of intensive research and close partnerships with leading laboratories for quantum entropy sources.”
Unlike some competing solutions, Qrypt’s QRNG technology is powered by true random from measuring quantum effects. Thanks to exclusive partnerships with national and international labs including Oak Ridge, Pacific Northwest, Los Alamos, and EPFL for quantum entropy sources, Qrypt is the first EaaS provider to leverage multiple quantum sources. This allows Qrypt to deliver the highest quality of randomness for its security solutions – ensuring quantum-secure encryption for businesses.
