QuSecure Partners with DataBridge Sites

DataBridge Sites | June 15, 2022

DataBridge Sites
QuSecure, Inc., a pioneer in post-quantum cybersecurity (PQC), announced today a collaboration with DataBridge Sites, a cutting-edge data center provider that serves off-site business critical IT environments, to demonstrate its Quantum-as-a-Service (QaaS) orchestration platform QuProtect. QuProtect is the industry's first end-to-end post-quantum cybersecurity software-based solution that uses quantum secure channels to safeguard encrypted communications and data with quantum resilience.

As an outcome of the collaboration, QuProtect is the first and only PQC solution provided as a live service in a data center. Business, IT, and security executives may quickly learn more about a successful PQC implementation by offering an accessible and tangible example of advanced PQC at datacenters like DataBridge. According to Shor's algorithm, any quantum computer with sufficient power would ultimately overcome all present global encryption. As a result, in order to secure data and communications, all business and government bodies must update to quantum-resistant equipment. Furthermore, data stolen now can be decoded in the future by a quantum computer, thus major enterprises must begin the strategic and information collecting stages of transitioning their cybersecurity to assure quantum resilience. The QuSecure/Databridge collaboration offers a technique for demonstrating quantum resilience.

“Our team is very excited to now be home to the QuSecure environment, which is the first PQC software that is currently live in a data center. Our company sees the quantum computing industry as a rapid growth area that can be used widespread through the commercial and federal marketplace. QuSecure’s unique offering will add to our ecosystem of service providers for clients to utilize.”

Mike Lozupone, DataBridge Sites director of business development

He further added, “DataBridge sees this partnership as being mutually beneficial, and we feel fortunate to work with companies like QuSecure as their business continues to grow. We expect new customers to be driven to our facility to benefit from the combination of QuSecure’s quantum security offerings and the infrastructure scale and physical security provided by DataBridge Sites.”

QuProtect delivers quantum-resistant cryptography at any time, on any device. QuProtect employs an end-to-end, quantum-security-as-a-service (QSaaS) architecture that addresses the most vulnerable aspects of the digital ecosystem by combining zero-trust, next-generation post-quantum cryptography, quantum-strength keys, high availability, simple deployment, and active defense into a detailed and coherent cybersecurity suite. The end-to-end method is built around the full data lifecycle, including data storage, communication, and consumption.

Skip Sanzeri, QuSecure Founder and COO said that “DataBridge is a world-class organization, and we are pleased to partner with them to provide the first instance of post-quantum cybersecurity available in a data center. The quantum threat, or Q-Day, is coming at us rapidly, and in May the White House published two initiatives to actively build U.S. quantum computing and post-quantum cybersecurity programs. Our partnership with DataBridge is another big step along the way to National Security in line with the White House memos.”

QuProtect is the most sophisticated PQC solution in the market, offering quantum-resilience for many of today's key use cases such as network, IoT, edge devices, and satellite communications. QuProtect may be hosted on-premises or in the cloud, giving the most suitable solution to the post-quantum dilemma and addressing today's complicated compliance concerns, such as BYOD and work-from-home regulations. PQC can be implemented across all network devices with minimum interruption to existing systems, defending against present and future quantum assaults that might irrevocably destroy industries and infrastructures in the government and commercial sectors.

Cybercrime is pervasive, pandemic and increasingly connected with other parts of the criminal ecosystem. It ranges from the theft of an individual’s identity to the complete disruption of a country’s Internet connectivity due to a massive attack against its networking and computing resources. While it can be argued that the scaling cybercrime threat is an unsolvable problem, the fact of the matter is that the problem has not been solved – yet. Technological innovation has consistently leap-frogged security innovation primarily because security was not part of the initial design of the Internet.
