Quantum-Safe, Secure Networking and Communications Visionary Joins Prestigious Cohort of Young Companies Poised to Disrupt the Communications Industry
BETHESDA, Md. and SUNNYVALE, Calf. – July 12, 2023 – Quantum Xchange, delivering the future of encryption with quantum safe crypto-agility, visibility, and management solutions, today announced it has been selected to join the 2023 Innovation Showcase on Sept. 22, 2023. Hosted by Silicon Valley’s Telecom Council, the invitation-only event introduces startups and innovation to global telcos and major telecom vendors who are dedicated to partnering with new companies, investing in new technologies, and exploring new market opportunities.
5G will be the infrastructure in place when the era of quantum computing has fully arrived, adding new complexities and security concerns to next-generation connectivity. For the promise of 5G innovation to be met, these new software-defined networking environments must embrace future-forward security measures that can keep pace with an evolving threat landscape, changing business requirements, and regulatory mandates without requiring network downtime or expensive rip and replace scenarios.
Quantum Xchange’s patented technology works with an organization’s existing encryption environment as an architecture overlay, enabling organizations to immediately and effortlessly build a crypto-agile infrastructure capable of bringing quantum-safe security to every data link, interconnect, and VPN tunnel on a 5G network.
“Telcos take cybersecurity very seriously,” said Liz Kerton, President of the Telecom Council. “So, the fact they chose Quantum Xchange as part of this year’s Innovation Showcase reflects how network operators are looking at future risks and understand that classic encryption is no match for threats from quantum computing.”
During the Innovation Showcase, 15 private companies with ready-to-deploy technologies and services addressing telecom priorities will be introduced to their future partners from global carriers, telecom vendors and investors. See Telecom Council press release for the full list of 2023 participants and to learn more about the selection criteria.
This is not the first time Quantum Xchange has been recognized for its contribution to the telecom industry. Earlier this year the company was awarded a 2023 INTERNET TELEPHONY SD-WAN Product of the Year Award for its ability to demonstrate the innovation, vision, and execution to deliver software-based networking tools to support different and unique communities of interest.
