About Crypto Quantique
Crypto Quantique is a leading provider of quantum safe cybersecurity solutions. It provides scalable IoT security that is quantum secure and compliant with any impending regulation, ensuring IoT ecosystems are future proof and risks to supply chains are reduced. The company has filed over 10 patents, over half of which have been granted.
IoT devices are vulnerable to attacks when they are not securely updated or designed with sufficient in-built safety systems. IoT can be the entry point of attacks into critical infrastructure and there has been a proliferation of IoT breaches in recent years. With the emergence of quantum computers that will make cyberattacks on IoT devices several orders of magnitude more powerful than they are today, Crypto Quantique has created a secure end-to-end IoT security platform ready for a post-quantum world.
Crypto Quantique has two independent products. Its software solution – QuarkLink – means that any IoT device can be securely onboarded to cloud services and managed throughout its lifecycle with secure over-the-air updates. Easy to set up, customers can quickly achieve IoT device security at scale. The hardware solution – QDID – is the world’s first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP that generates unforgeable device identities. By authenticating a device at the quantum level, QDID provides the highest level of IoT security and compliance available. While Crypto Quantique’s software and hardware solutions can operate independently, together they form Q:Architecture, Crypto Quantique’s complete device security management from chip to cloud.
Crypto Quantique was co-founded in 2016 by CEO Dr Shahram Mossayebi, an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), an expert in semiconductor design. Crypto Quantique brings together experts from across sectors to understand how to tap into quantum technology that can solve problems today.
Crypto Quantique has to date raised £23 million in funding including grants from the European Innovation Council. Its fast-growing number of key industry partnerships include large semiconductor companies STMicroelectronics, Microchip, and Renesas and OEMs like Wurth Elektronik.
