Qrypt enables businesses to easily replicate data security on an isolated network
NEW YORK, July 14, 2021 – Qrypt, a leader in cryptographic quantum security solutions enabled by Quantum Entropy-as-a-Service (EaaS), today unveiled its Quantum Data at Rest (QDAR) application. QDAR provides single buffer encryption as a data-at-rest application for enterprises to secure important files, critical information and all mission critical data storage. This technology from Qrypt allows companies to replicate air gap networks, which is the highest level of security used by the CIA and similar government agencies.
“The security industry has always warned that protecting data means trusting no one else. We just make it a feasible possibility for anyone to employ it easily, ”said Denis Mandich, CTO and co-founder of Qrypt. “QDAR is the next step in Qrypt’s mission to democratize quantum encryption. Businesses now have access to unique, unbreakable encryption to protect their most important files from malicious attackers, even in the event of a security breach or data collection.
A security concern in today’s world is that many applications used by businesses to communicate data, like Slack, Microsoft Teams, Facebook Workplace, and others, are also the platform for data encryption. This means that if the company providing this service is breached, it is very likely that the data of all customers and users using this service will be compromised. By separating the communication platform from the encryption platform, malicious attackers must now enter both platforms simultaneously before they can gain access to valuable data. In a world where “harvest now, decrypt later” tactics pose a serious threat, this decoupled approach dramatically improves data security. QDAR is powered by Qrypt’s patented BLAST algorithm, which exploits the generation of quantum random numbers from multiple entropy sources to produce unique, perfectly random keypad keys. Any user can quickly and easily encrypt sensitive files with randomly generated single-use blocks, and then share this encrypted data over the internet with their colleagues. Only other users with the same QDAR one-time encryption keys can optionally decrypt the encoded data to read the files, ensuring the confidentiality of important information. With such a secure network, businesses can share sensitive information with a remote or extended workforce without any risk of compromise, a need that has grown during the pandemic.
Since each single-use block is unique and has nothing to do with the next encryption, this approach to encryption is the only technique that cannot be “brutally forced” by quantum computing. The encryption of the one-time buffer can only be broken if an attacker has access to the specific pool of random numbers used by QDAR to encrypt data, as well as to the sampling and extraction parameters specific to that encryption session. This means that Qrypt’s QDAR can only be compromised at the point of no return – when a malicious actor has full digital or physical access to the user’s devices.
Qrypt’s quantum encryption technology is based on years of research and development with leading engineers, physicists and cryptographers to create a revolutionary new approach to data security in the age of quantum computing. The company has several strategic partnerships with leading national and international laboratories providing exclusive access to new sources and quantum entropy technologies that power Qrypt’s EaaS solutions. All of the company’s research has been validated by professional experts in their field, having been published and reviewed in various peer-reviewed journals. Qrypt also holds a portfolio of international patents in the United States, Europe, Japan and Korea, with eight patents and over 100 claims for its various technologies and solutions.
Founded by Kevin Chalker and Denis Mandich, Qrypt is dedicated to the democratization of quantum cryptography to protect and defend our collective privacy from exploitation. With a team of seasoned leaders in engineering, physics and cryptography, Qrypt has created a patented, peer-reviewed quantum cryptography solution and Entropy-as-a-Service for global enterprises. The Qrypt solution is capable of securing information indefinitely, against quantum computers and scientific advances.
