Quantum Xchange, with its cutting-edge key distribution infrastructure, has teamed up with Thales to provide quantum-safe and crypto-agile key delivery options. End-users can use the quantum-resistant network solution to future-proof their data and communications network systems; conquer the vulnerabilities of current encryption techniques, such as keys and data travelling together, and defend against man-in-the-middle, harvesting, and future quantum attacks.

“Phio TX used in combination with Thales High Speed Encryptors (HSEs) arm customers with a powerful, enterprise security solution capable of making native encryption keys immediately quantum resistant. The standards-based solution can easily meet the risk mitigation needs of a business at any time and delivers an infinitely stronger cybersecurity posture to any network environment,” said Eddy Zervigon, CEO of Quantum Xchange.

“Quantum computing will be one of the biggest technological achievements in recent memory, but it comes with a lot of security risks. While there is no such thing as a silver bullet when it comes to cybersecurity, deploying crypto-agile systems, or those with the ability to update cryptographic algorithms, keys and certificates quickly in response to advances in cyber-attacks is the next frontier in protection against the emerging threats. Today Thales is enabling businesses to deploy security algorithms in a flexible way that include quantum-resistant algorithms that provide mitigation techniques to the current and future security risks presented by the evolution of quantum computing. NIST is currently selecting finalists amongst the quantum-safe encryption algorithms being developed. In anticipation of this, Thales already supports the current finalists including Thales’ Falcon algorithm,” said Todd Moore, Vice President Encryption Products at Thales.
