ISARA, Carillon and Crypto4A Partnership enables a world first Canadian fully integrated Quantum-Safe Now PKI solution

Crypto4A | October 23, 2021

Crypto4A Technologies Inc., ISARA Corp., and Carillon Information Security Inc. today announced their partnership agreement focused on providing organizations with a next generation Quantum Safe NowTM Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solution.

The Quantum-Safe Now™ PKI solution integrates ISARA's Radiate Quantum-safe Toolkit and Catalyst Agile Digital Certificate Methodology, which provide hybrid crypto-agility, with Carillon's world class PKI CertServ ID Management Suite operating on Crypto4A's QxEDGE™ and QxCloud™ Hybrid Security Platform (HSP).  

By working together, the three Canadian organizations provide a world first quantum safe PKI solution running on purpose-built hybrid crypto-agile hardware.

As part of the partnership, the companies intend to develop and market seamless, easy to use quantum-safe PKI cryptographic solutions that ease digital transformations, enable cryptographic agility and simplify cryptographic management.

Today's connected economies, identity based digital transformations, DevSecOps teams and cloud-based deployments require new cryptographic capabilities based on quantum-safe software and hardware to provide enterprises with the forward agility, seamless access, security and controls required for cloud, edge, and end user environments.

"ISARA's suite of proven crypto-agile capabilities effectively complements the proven capabilities of both Carillon's PKI software and Crypto4A's hardware based crypto-agility resulting in a more robust and easier to use Quantum-Safe Now™ PKI solution. Our approach is to enable customers to discover and manage their cryptographic capabilities in an agile, quantum-safe and trusted way.  Our collective experiences, knowledge and integrated Quantum Safe Now™ PKI solution de-risks digital transformations and migrations to address the evolving security requirements for today and tomorrow," said Scott Totzke, CEO and Co-founder at ISARA.

Identity based digital environments, applications and relationships rely on cryptography for their trust, innovation, security and privacy. By working with ISARA and Carillon, we demonstrate the power of the Canadian cryptography industry to elevate the original PKI architecture as well as demonstrate the agile capabilities of our FPGA based QxTrust Architecture™(QxTA™). As progress is made in better cloud and edge security, privacy and data management, new requirements are emerging that place material stress on the foundations of today's cryptographic hardware. This new collaborative offering helps to remove some of these stresses and represents our approach to cooperation

John Scott, CEO of Crypto4A

"We are excited to be partnering with Crypto4A and ISARA on this common PKI initiative. The experience that they both bring from a cryptography and an engineering perspective, provides Carillon and its customers with an integrated approach to an agile Quantum Safe Now™ PKI solution. Quantum Safe Now™ demonstrates our ongoing commitment to meet the emerging needs of the connected enterprise for innovation with digital trust", said Patrick Patterson, President and Chief PKI Architect of Carillon.

Lookout and CipherCloud Together are Ready to Redefine Security from Endpoint to Cloud

Lookout | March 15, 2021

In the current event, Lookout, Inc announced that it had acquired CipherCloud. Lookout, Inc is a leading cybersecurity company. It is now joining hands with CipherCloud, a leading cloud-native security company, operates in the emerging Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market. They both blaze a new path together to combine and create an integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution. By this combination, Lookout will be in a unique position to deliver the industry's first end-to-end platform that will secure an organization's entire data path from an endpoint to the cloud. This will later empower customers with a single source of unified policies and provide end-to-end security to accelerate their digital transformation. CipherCloud solutions are related to several developing SASE categories. This includes Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Together these solutions will deliver data security, comprehensive visibility, threat protection, and compliance for cloud-based applications. Familiar to this, CipherCloud has already been providing services to many of the world's largest global enterprises and government institutions seeking protection and security through cloud technology. The purpose of this integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution is accelerated by the adoption of cloud applications, proliferation of remote users, data transitioning of the corporate data center into the cloud, and more network traffic flowing to public cloud services. To tackle the security challenges caused by the above trends, businesses in this industry need a cohesive platform that can track activity and enforce policies from the endpoint device to cloud-based applications. And the need to stop zero-day attacks on data information across the entire end-to-end path, this integrated solution can fill the gaps immediately, keeping all information secured in one place. Jim Dolce, CEO of Lookout, highlights this acquisition. Gartner forecasts that the SASE market will nurture at a CAGR of 42% over the next five years and would reach almost $11 billion by 2024.
