QuSecure wins Global InfoSec Award from Cyber Defense Magazine
Wed, 26th Apr 2023

QuSecure has announced that its PQC solution QuProtect has won the coveted Global InfoSec Award from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry's electronic information security magazine, as announced at the RSA Conference 2023. QuProtect was named the best solution in the Next-Gen Quantum Computing awards category.

This is Cyber Defense Magazine's 10th year of honouring InfoSec innovators from around the Globe. The judges were CISSP, FMDHS, and CEH certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of the company submission and materials on the website. CDM has a flexible philosophy to find more innovative players with new and unique technologies, versus only larger enterprises.

Skip Sanzeri, QuSecure co-Founder and COO, says, "It is extremely rewarding to be recognised at the RSA Conference by this esteemed panel of security judges as the leading solution in next-generation quantum computing.

"Our QuProtect solution enables organisations to protect their communications and secure private information as the world accelerates toward a quantum future, due to the looming threat of quantum computings ability to break the public key encryption we currently use.

"QuProtects post-quantum technologies are differentiated in the industry and uniquely provide secure, interoperable cybersecurity to protect networks from today's classical threats and future quantum threats."

QuSecure's QuProtect software is designed to enable organisations to leverage quantum-resilient technology to prevent today's cyber attacks, while future-proofing networks and preparing for quantum cyber threats. It provides quantum-resilient cryptography, anytime, anywhere and on any device.

QuProtect software uses an end-to-end quantum-security-as-a-service architecture that addresses the digital ecosystems most vulnerable aspects, uniquely combining zero-trust, next-generation post-quantum-cryptography, crypto agility, quantum-strength keys, high availability, easy deployment, and active defense into a comprehensive and interoperable cybersecurity suite.

The end-to-end approach is designed to protect the entire information lifecycle as data is communicated, used and stored.

Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine, comments, "QuSecure embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: Understanding tomorrows threats today, providing a cost-effective solution, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach."

The QuProtect solution is an advanced quantum safe solution providing quantum-resilience for today's critical communications, including network, cloud, IoT, edge devices, and satellite communications.

According to the company, using QuProtect, organisations are able to implement PQC across all devices on the network with minimal disruption to existing systems, protecting against current classical and future quantum attacks which could irreparably disrupt industries and infrastructures across government and commercial sectors; at the same time solving todays complex compliance challenges, such as bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and work-from-home policies.
