Founded in Ottawa in 2018, Quantropi is bound to be the standard for next-generation cybersecurity – forever unbreakable, no matter what. our technology leverages the mathematical laws of quantum physics to encrypt data in transit — without requiring the processing power of a quantum computer. This unique capability makes ours the first company in the world to offer true, secure Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) over today’s internet, allowing users to send quantum-encrypted data with their own computer, today.
A 100% Canadian innovator in the Quantum Communication space, Quantropi is focused on perfecting and leveraging three unique patented technologies forming a total end-to-end solution:
Not only does our technology empower users to achieve unconditional security, but it is also more cost-effective, scalable and efficient than anything else out there. With our solution, enterprise leaders, government agencies, IT professionals, and anyone concerned about data protection can be absolutely confident their information is truly future-proof.
Driven by a mission to ensure the protection of the data and privacy underpinning our global digital society, Quantropi is enabling enterprises to transition immediately to quantum-grade safety — with zero investment in new hardware or infrastructure. Best of all, our unique platform solution works over today’s Internet — providing a simple, evolutionary upgrade path to critically improved security.
Our team is focused on delivering future-proof cybersecurity solutions to a wide range of industry sectors, including government, technology, finance and telecommunications, to name but a few.
Technical and academic validation for our specific research findings and claims include two papers published under the auspices of IEEE Quantum Week, October 2020: Shannon Perfect Secrecy in a Discrete Hilbert Space and Quantum Public Key Distribution using Randomized Glauber States, with a third paper accepted for publication at IEEE ICCCS 2021: Quantum Safe Lightweight Cryptography with Quantum Permutation Pad (forthcoming).
Among our recent awards and recognition are a designation as finalist for Berlin Falling Walls Breakthrough of the Year 2020 in the category of Science Start-Ups, a 2020 BOBs Best New (Ottawa) Business Award, inclusion in the Trade Commissioner Service eBook 2020, as well as the Trade Commissioner Service B2B Program, as part of Collision 2021.
