How IDQ Protects Your Data in a Quantum World
Telecommunications is at a crossroads. Cybersecurity is changing. Customers expect today’s data to remain safe in a quantum world.
Cybersecurity in an unpredictable (quantum) world
At a time when information and communications infrastructure is continually evolving, ensuring long-term security is more challenging than ever. The upcoming paradigm shift of quantum computing has put a clock on the effectiveness of cybersecurity as we know it, with advances in computational power rendering even the strongest encryption vulnerable to future attack.
In fact, quantum computers pose a very real threat to data security today. The long-term value of much of today’s data means it is vulnerable to a ‘download now, decrypt later’ attack. With the 5G roll-out connecting many critical applications, such as IoT, automotive, smart cities, pay and health services, the potential attack surface has increased exponentially.
Positioning telecommunications in the future
Over the past twenty years, the role of communications infrastructure has changed significantly. Ubiquitous connectivity and pressures from internet and technology service providers has seen an erosion of traditional telecoms value pools.
The telecoms industry faces a choice, remain tied to past models of monetization or embrace bold choices and seize the opportunities an increasingly connected world has to offer. The pandemic demonstrated just how essential a secure and resilient communications infrastructure is. As the industry looks to the future, secure communications will remain a foundation of the digital world and Quantum cybersecurity will ensure a strong, durable, and profitable position for telecoms.

About ID Quantique
ID Quantique (IDQ), founded in 2001, initially operated as a spin-off company of the University of Geneva, working on research projects to demonstrate the feasibility of quantum key distribution (or QKD, also known as quantum cryptography). In late 2003, IDQ developed the first QKD product for data centers to protect data in transit. 20 years later, IDQ released its 4th generation of quantum key distribution systems and remains the market leader in quantum safe cryptography and quantum sensing solutions. It maintains close ties with academic institutions by participating in numerous research programs and plays a leading role in cutting-edge projects to drive innovation to the market.
