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.
Sectigo, a global provider of digital certificates and automated certificate lifecycle management solutions launched Sectigo Secure Key Storage SDK (SKS-SDK) to its portfolio of industry-leading products.
Secure key storage is a software-based library that maintains, seals, and saves encryption keys, passwords, and other private information in an efficient and cost-effective manner. It eliminates the possibility of credentials being exposed on devices that don’t have a hardware-based secure key store mechanism like a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
IoT device makers across the industry are swiftly understanding the need to increase security in their products to protect customers from attacks that target embedded devices and expose them to data theft, service disruption, and the spread of the cyberattack to other systems. Legislation and industry standards are requiring stricter authentication in several sectors.
Although most advanced IoT devices provide a hardware platform for secure key storage, many low-cost or outdated devices lack these features. In addition, providing secure key storage to IoT devices raises the bill of materials, making hardware solutions less economical. Sectigo’s latest product bridges the gap in the IoT security field by providing an accessible alternative for lower-cost IoT devices that don’t include secure key storage hardware.
“Enhanced levels of security should be available for all IoT devices to help prevent noncompliance with ever-changing legislation and standards, device cloning, and the introduction of counterfeit devices into the market. Sectigo’s latest secure key storage solution enables IoT device manufacturers to protect private keys and critical information from hackers with special attention to affordability and compliance,” said Alan Grau, VP of IoT/Embedded Solutions at Sectigo.
Unbound Security, a leader in cryptographic key management and protection services, formed a partnership with WaveStrong, a market leader in cloud information security consulting services for businesses with a focus on serving the government and education sector (SLED). Offers best security solutions to its increasing number of clients.
