Terra Quantum pioneers a range of quantum technologies with the mission of leading the quantum revolution from meaningful solutions today to a more prosperous future tomorrow. The development of quantum technologies will disrupt many industries, creating new opportunities and at the same time, new risks. Currently, there is considerable concern about the nefarious use of quantum technologies for illegal hacking. It is expected that in the near future, quantum computers will develop to such a point that they pose a significant threat to our current information security protocols, allowing hackers access to sensitive information globally by brute-forcing security problems previously uncrackable by classical computers. While companies in the financial and healthcare spaces are especially concerned with protecting confidential and sensitive information, all industries are aware of the financial losses and reputational damages that result from data breaches and should be proactive in addressing this threat. This business white paper discusses the nature of the coming threat and details our comprehensive offerings and solutions for secure communication in the quantum age. These include Terra Quantum’s novel Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) protocol, Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNGs) and Post-Quantum Library.
The Cyber Security industry finds itself in a never-ending arms race against ever more sophisticated and ingenious attackers, hacking groups and malicious actors. Companies today face myriad threats that exploit all kinds of vulnerabilities in their enterprises. The surface area of potential compromise is expanding, stretching from an organization’s employees — who are frequently the target of phishing and social engineering attacks — to the supporting technological infrastructure that is all too often the subject of devastating evolving attacks and zero-day threats. This constantly changing threat landscape, organizations must be increasingly vigilant and proactive in preventing catastrophic damages to their business.
However, amidst all this chaos, one threat that is currently largely unaddressed looms large on the horizon. As will be explained in the section on the “store now — decrypt later” risk, for some data and some companies, it is already too late to prevent against it. This vulnerability exists in just about every network and internet service used across the globe.
