Strategic Alliance Bolsters Asset Protection with Advanced Cryptographic Discovery Amid Quantum Advancements
NEW YORK (PRWEB) OCTOBER 24, 2023
1touch.io, a pioneer in Sensitive Data Intelligence, and QuintessenceLabs, renowned for its quantum-safe encryption, today announced a strategic Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partnership. The collaboration is set to strengthen enterprise defenses against the cryptographic threats posed by quantum computing.
The Quantum Threat to Traditional Cryptography
The advent of quantum computing has cast a shadow over traditional enterprise cryptography algorithms, such as RSA, AES-128, ECC, and Diffie-Hellman, which have long been pillars in safeguarding sensitive data. Recognizing this looming threat, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), National Security Agency (NSA), and U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) recently published a Quantum Readiness: Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography fact sheet, stressing the need for organizations to understand their dependence on quantum-vulnerable cryptography.
The agencies stated:
“Organizations are often unaware of the breadth of application and functional dependencies on public-key cryptography that exist within the products, applications, and services widely deployed within their operational environments, leading to a lack of visibility…[they] should initiate proactive cryptographic discovery activities that identify the organization’s current reliance on quantum-vulnerable cryptography.”
CISA, NIST and NSA are urging organizations to start preparing for the implementation of post-quantum cryptography (PQC) by establishing a quantum-readiness roadmap, engaging with technology vendors now and creating migration plans that prioritize the most sensitive and critical assets.
