Typical hackers—the ones who want to make easy money—usually don’t bother trying to break encryption. The algorithms in use today are simply too strong to make the effort worthwhile, no matter how skilled the data thieves are.
But when government and military secrets and other high value data and communication are involved, threat actors certainly do make the effort. Hostile nations and other adversary groups, using supercomputers and multimillion-dollar budgets, try to find weaknesses in how encryption is implemented. Often, this means looking for predictability in the data used in the encryption process.
QuintessenceLabs is the undisputed leader in using quantum technology to protect encrypted data from these advanced threats, and RockITek is happy to announce that we are now QuintessenceLabs’ official partner for the government sector.
“The U.S. government is targeted by the world’s most sophisticated and determined threat actors,” said RockITek CEO John Sobczak. “QuintessenceLabs’ technology eliminates vulnerabilities that might otherwise lead to catastrophic consequences.”
QuintessenceLabs’ quantum random number generator (QNRG) uses the powerful nature of quantum physics to produce completely unpredictable data, which can be used for maximum-strength encryption. QuintessenceLabs also builds quantum technology into its other cybersecurity solutions, including a true random, quantum entropy enhancer and a crypto-agile quantum key distribution (QKD) solution that helps defend against even the most sophisticated attacks by quantum computers.
As QuintessenceLabs’ distributor, RockITek will work with government agencies to identify use cases where a strong encryption strategy based on quantum-safe technology is needed to protect against emerging threats.
“Current technologies are providing inadequate protection to sensitive information, and the weakest link in cybersecurity is often no longer the human, but it’s the infrastructure. So we’re very excited to be partnering with a distributor in the government space like RockITek,” said Mark Crowley, president of QuintessenceLabs. “We see huge potential for our quantum-safe strategies and solutions within the U.S. government ecosystem, and the RockITek team has the expertise to help us collaborate and maximize our success.”
QuintessenceLabs is the global leader in quantum-enhanced cybersecurity solutions. We deliver unique products to deliver the strongest protection, integrating quantum technology with high-value security capabilities. These include the world’s fastest commercial quantum random number generator, our crypto-agile key and policy manager, integrated encryption solutions, and second-generation quantum key distribution. These quantum-safe solutions help keep organizations secure today while building the strongest foundation for tomorrow’s quantum computer security threat.
RockITek is a distributor specializing in building and managing purpose-built consortiums that accelerate the adoption of emerging technology in the government space. We collaborate with our partners to create alignment and work together for mutual success.
