QuSecure's QuProtect named Best Quantum Cyber Security Solution 2023
Thu, 14th Dec 2023

QuSecure's QuProtect solution has recently been designated as the Best Quantum Cyber Security Solution of the year in the 2023 ASTORS Homeland Security Awards Program from American Security Today.

This prestigious U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program is now in its eighth year and persistently recognises the industry leaders in Cybersecurity, among other sectors, for their efforts to keep the organisations safe.

As the most advanced quantum safe solution in the industry, QuProtect provides quantum-resilience for various vital communication channels of today such as network, cloud, IoT, edge devices, and satellite communications.

By implementing Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) across all devices on a network with minimal disruption to existing systems, QuProtect affirms protection against current classical and potential quantum attacks.

Such attacks could possibly cause irreparable disruptions to industries and infrastructures across government and commercial sectors. It also finds solutions to modern complex compliance issues, such as bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and work-from-home policies.

Skip Sanzeri, QuSecure co-founder and COO, discussed the recognition, "We are honoured to be acknowledged for our post-quantum cryptography innovations and achievements in American Security Today's prestigious 2023 ASTORS Awards Program, and to be named as the Best Quantum Cyber Security Solution of the year."

QuProtect is currently being used in both commercial enterprise and federal government organisations, enabling them to protect their communications and secure private information as existing encryption continues to come under attack, from advances in AI and quantum computing.

Sanzeri further added, "QuProtect's post-quantum technologies are differentiated in the industry by providing cryptographic agility and orchestration without requiring the removal or replacement of existing standard encryption. It uniquely provides secure, interoperable cybersecurity to protect networks from today's classical threats and future quantum threats."

The ASTORS Homeland Security Awards Program aims to honour distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to users across government, homeland security and public safety vertical markets. As the nation carries on to address escalating threats domestically and internationally, innovative solutions like QuSecure's QuProtect are being adopted to combat these challenges.

"Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting IT/cyber security networks and they are calling on innovative companies like QuSecure to help them do so," shared Michael Madsen, co-founder and publisher of American Security.

QuSecure's QuProtect software is accessible for test and deployment presently. It employs quantum-resilient technology to counteract today's cyberattacks while future-proofing networks and preparing for potential quantum threats. Using QuProtect, organisations can deliver PQC on the network with minimal disruption to existing system.
