The risk of cyberattacks compromising organisations continues to grow. As cyber criminals uncover new techniques to exploit connected systems and their data, even the cryptographic foundations of cybersecurity measures remain vulnerable to advanced threats.
Cryptographic keys created using current typical methods deployed by organisations around the world are not provably unpredictable, leaving encrypted data and systems potentially at risk of devastating attacks.
Quantinuum’s quantum-computing-hardened cryptographic key enhancement solution provably minimises the risk that businesses generate and use vulnerable encryption keys to protect encrypted data.
“While quantum computing has the potential to render current encryption algorithms obsolete, posing a significant challenge to businesses and individuals alike, already today sophisticated attackers can take advantage of vulnerable encryption keys,” said Dr Rajeeb Hazra, CEO of Quantinuum. “With our Quantum Origin Onboard and the overall Quantum Origin platform, organisations can fortify defences across multiple endpoints and embrace the possibilities of a quantum-secure future."
Strengthening encryption at the device level
Quantum Origin Onboard is the first and only commercially available enterprise software solution capable of delivering quantum-computing-hardened key enhancement. It can be installed directly onto devices and used to help deliver unparalleled foundational-level protection.
Quantum Origin Onboard brings cutting-edge, enterprise-level security that integrates directly into connected devices without the need for additional hardware upgrades. This unique approach ensures that devices in any environment, online or offline, can generate quantum-computing-hardened keys to continually maximise the strength of encryption measures protecting devices.
How it works
Quantum Origin Onboard embeds a quantum seed, created by Quantinuum's H-series quantum computer, into devices. The seed is a string of provably unpredictable numbers, which enhance a device's capability to generate strong and secure keys.
“Enterprises are recognising they can build unprecedented resilience by adopting quantum-computing-hardened cryptographic keys,” said Duncan Jones, head of cybersecurity at Quantinuum. “This is a paradigm shift, and enterprises in critical industries are embracing the opportunity to minimise a risk to one of their attack surfaces, specifically device-level encryption on internet-connected products that might be in the field for a decade.”
