Honeywell has announced that it's the first company to incorporate quantum-computing-hardened encryption keys into smart utility meters, protecting end-user data from advanced cybersecurity threats.
Quantinuum's Quantum Origin provides an advantage over conventional solutions by generating keys with quantum-computing-enhanced randomness.
Honeywell's new Smart Energy and Thermal Solution products powered with Quantum Origin are now available to North American and European customers.
Honeywell recently made a groundbreaking announcement that it is the first company to incorporate quantum-computing-hardened encryption keys into smart utility meters, a move that provides advanced protection for end-user data against cyber threats. To achieve this, Honeywell will leverage Quantinuum's Quantum Origin technology to not only enhance data security but also contribute to building greater reliability and trust in the evolving utility sector.
The enhanced security utility meters establish a new standard for safeguarding against data breaches and ensuring the uninterrupted operation of water, gas, and electricity utility infrastructure for both commercial and residential applications.
Quantinuum's Quantum Origin provides an advantage over conventional solutions by generating keys with quantum-computing-enhanced randomness, thereby rendering them truly unpredictable and substantially enhancing the data security of utilities' end users.
No other organizations in the smart meter market presently offer quantum-hardened encryption protection. The incorporation of this technology into Honeywell's Smart Energy and Thermal Solutions' products will assist in addressing the industry's expanding data security requirements, especially as they pertain to critical infrastructure.
President of Smart Energy and Thermal Solutions at Honeywell, Hamed Heyhat, said,
By integrating Quantinuum's quantum-computing-hardened encryption technology into our smart meters, we are advancing data security for our customers and helping to shape the dialogue on how the utility industries should approach cybersecurity in the quantum era.

Hamed Heyhat emphasized the significance of continuous innovation in enabling customers to stay ahead of the ever-changing threat landscape. It was noted that such a level of protection is crucial in our progressively digital and interconnected world.
Tony Uttley, President and COO of Quantinuum, mentioned,
Our work with Honeywell demonstrates the importance of using the power of today's quantum computers to create a more resilient cyber infrastructure to better protect customers.

Aqua Security, the pioneer in cloud native security, today announced enhancement of the Aqua Cloud Security Platform with the availability of AI-Guided Remediation capabilities. Now overburdened security teams can better operationalize risk findings to rapidly reduce risk and help developers quickly fix issues.
According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, adversaries exploit a vulnerability within 15 days (on average) of discovery, putting an organization at risk for nefarious activity. This window of exposure combined with an overwhelming volume of alerts amplifies the need for all organizations to reduce mean time to remediation (MTTR).
“Cyber threats evolve faster than ever, and security practitioners are increasingly challenged to identify and quickly resolve critical issues,” said Amir Jerbi, CTO and co-founder, Aqua Security. “With Aqua Security’s AI-Guided Remediation, we’re empowering security teams to expedite the resolution of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. This not only enhances cloud security, but it also fosters collaboration between developers and security experts, ensuring a more resilient and secure ecosystem.”
With step-by-step instructions on how to fix the issue, it dramatically reduces the MTTR for security teams and reduces risk exposure, removing the hassle of manually finding advisories, the associated patches and verification steps. AI-Guided Remediation eliminates the guesswork, searching and self-education time, and it allows the developers to focus on completing the fix rather than trying to figure out how to complete it.
Leveraging AI-Guided Remediation, dev and security teams can automatically generate prescriptive remediation steps for any misconfigurations and vulnerabilities across multiple clouds and workload types. As part of a comprehensive security platform with dev security, Aqua provides consistent information to dev and security teams within Aqua’s cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP), the Aqua Cloud Security Platform.
Break Down Friction, Unify Security
A top organizational challenge of DevSecOps adoption is the lack of collaboration between dev and security teams (source: IDC)1. AI-Guided Remediation bridges that gap while also reducing friction.
Despite having different goals and responsibilities, developers are facing increasing pressure to act as security experts. As further illustrated by IDC data, building a culture of shared ownership between dev and security is a driver for adopting a DevSecOps. AI-Guided Remediation provides prescriptive contextual guidance to help developers, who may not be security experts, arm themselves with the information they need to remediate quickly and collaborate more effortlessly.
“As a developer, AI-Guided Remediation is like having a security expert in your pocket,” said Jerbi.
AI-Guided Remediation leverages generative AI and is part of the SaaS addition of the Aqua Cloud Security Platform; it is available with an Open AI integration with ChatGPT. To learn more, visit Aquasec.com.
