Quantum Xchange has formed a strategic partnership with Spire Solutions. Customers, partners, and prospects of Spire will gain access to Phio Trusted Xchange (TX), Quantum Xchange’s out-of-band key delivery system that allows users to future-proof the security of their data and communications networks, overcome the vulnerabilities of current encryption techniques, such as keys and data travelling together, and protect against man-in-the-middle, harvesting, and future quantum attacks.
“We are in the early stages of the greatest migration in the history of computing as nearly every organization in the world will need to update and transition their legacy encryption to new quantum-safe standards,” said Sanjeev Walia, Founder and President of Spire Solutions.
He added, “Quantum Xchange’s unique technology greatly eases this burden, offering an affordable and dynamic next-generation key delivery architecture for stronger data security today and quantum-safe protection from future threats. We are pleased to have QXC as a partner and to add Phio TX to our portfolio of the world’s best security products and services.”
“Spire Solutions has a proven track record successfully introducing new cybersecurity solutions to more than 15 countries in its region, making them an ideal partner for Quantum Xchangeas we look to expand our global visibility and reach,” said Eddy Zervigon, CEO of Quantum Xchange.
He added, “Spire’s dedicated division focusing on cyber threat intelligence, comprehensive risk protection, and response complements our mission to protect and preserve the digital infrastructure that runs our global economy by bringing to market a standards-based, quantum-ready solution that can easily meet the risk mitigation needs of a business at any time while delivering an infinitely stronger cybersecurity posture to any network environment.”
To decouple key generation and distribution from data transmissions, Quantum Xchange’s PhioTX operates as a basic architecture overlay that works in concert with traditional encryption systems and any TCP/IP connection (wireless, copper, satellite, fibre). With Phio TX, a second quantum-enhanced encryption key is supplied out-of-band to numerous transmission points via a separate quantum-protected tunnel and mesh network. On every transfer, the system’s security is further enhanced by continuous key rotation.
Phio TX embraces crypto agility, supporting quantum keys generated from any source, such as a quantum random number generator (QRNG), quantum key distribution (QKD), or a combination of the two, as well as all Post-Quantum Cryptographic (PQC)key encapsulation candidate algorithms being evaluated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for standardisation in 2022. The European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) protocol for QKD is also met by the FIPS-validated network security appliance. Users can use Phio TX to start with PQC and then easily scale up to QKD protection levels with no disruption to their underlying infrastructure.
Quantum Xchange will be on the Spire Solutions display H1 A120 at #LEAP22, the first worldwide forum for the most revolutionary technology experts, which will take place from February 1-3, 2022 at the Riyadh Front Expo Centre in Saudi Arabia.
