Solving an Increasingly Urgent, Mission-Critical Problem

Quantropi believes the world needs to be prepared for the imminent quantum future. Our team members come from deep technology, quantum communication, cybersecurity and entrepreneurship backgrounds and are recognized by world-leading organizations, like NASA. With five patents granted and many more pending—Quantropi’s technology is poised to become the quantum security standard.

That’s because any enterprise which deploys Quantropi’s platform achieves not only immediate quantum-proof security, but also ultra-efficient client-side implementation. Simply put, with QiSpace™, every secure action consumes less time and energy than its direct legacy equivalent. Less energy equals lower cost. In fact, with the advantage of gross savings on both energy and infrastructure, organizations will net a cost benefit over current installed technology —  savings that will only increase over time.

Improved algorithmic performance, enhanced customer and employee experiences, significant reductions in security-related latency, all with perfect secrecy — it adds up to powerful quantitative and qualitative gains driving straight to the bottom line.

Why is quantum encryption important?

You can only fight quantum with quantum—and the commercial availability of quantum computers is looming. By the time they’re mainstream, all current encryption standards will become obsolete, rendering the world’s most sensitive data vulnerable to attacks. Fortunately, we don’t have to rely on band-aid solutions, or wait to harness the power of quantum computers in order to combat this threat.

With Quantropi, perfect secrecy is possible. Quantum isn’t just about physical photons — it’s also a logical science. By preparing our digital society today for what’s to come tomorrow, we are leading the way to a new standard for secure data communications. And better peace of mind.

Mission

Quantropi’s ambition is to ensure that data and privacy are and always will be protected—today, tomorrow and forever—no matter what threats the post-quantum future may bring. We are going to do this by harnessing the power of the Canadian high-tech innovation ecosystem, working with technology professionals, business leaders and academics to bring Quantropi’s quantum security standard to the world.

That’s because any enterprise which deploys Quantropi’s platform achieves not only immediate quantum-proof security, but also ultra-efficient client-side implementation. Simply put, with QiSpace™, every secure action consumes less time and energy than its direct legacy equivalent. Less energy equals lower cost. In fact, with the advantage of gross savings on both energy and infrastructure, organizations will net a cost benefit over current installed technology —  savings that will only increase over time.

Improved algorithmic performance, enhanced customer and employee experiences, significant reductions in security-related latency, all with perfect secrecy — it adds up to powerful quantitative and qualitative gains driving straight to the bottom line.

Quick Facts

  • How much faster are quantum computers?

According to the National Academy of Sciences, math problems (like the ones encrypting our sensitive data today) that would take a traditional computer billions of years to solve can be solved by quantum computers in a matter of seconds.

  • When will quantum computers become mainstream?

Experts like Michele Mosca, Deputy Director at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, believe that the odds of reaching Y2Q (Years to Quantum) by 2026 are 1 in 7 and 1 in 2 by 2031.

  • Why should I care about my data being quantum-safe?

Vadim Lyubashevsky, a cryptography researcher with IBM, asserts that somebody may well be harvesting your data now and saving it to decrypt later.

Rapid, Sustainable, Profitable Growth

From government & military, to banking and fintech, to digital health, robotics, blockchain, IoT and nearly every sector of the economy, industry observers estimate that quantum computing will have a global market value of $1 trillion by 2035. Moreover, with data and privacy security rising to the top of nearly every organization’s agenda, Toshiba expects the global market for Quantum Key Distribution to grow to $12 billion within 10 years. Quantropi’s vision is to be the standard for quantum-secure data — no matter what the future network, or threat, may be.

  • A first core patent was granted to the Company for “Methods And Systems For Data Protection” (Patent No.: US 10,476,664 B2) in November, 2019.
  • A second core patent for “Methods And Systems For Digital Message Encoding And Signing” (Patent No.: US 10,951,404 Bl) in March, 2021.
  • Several further official grants, notably for “Quantum Public Key Distribution with Randomized Glauber States”, are imminent.

Now imagine the same crypto-agility and real-world performance of Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC), without the volatility and uncertainty of unknown quantum algorithms. That’s the power of linear versus Boolean algebra. It’s infinitely extendable.

Combine instantly achievable unhackable protection of sensitive data, with 100% existing network compatibility, and the obvious solution is… logical. Digital QKD, only from Quantropi.

By tackling quantum with quantum, QEEP™ combines the most compelling attributes of QKD and PQC, with none of their real-world disadvantages. Quantropi is helping public and private-sector organizations prepare for the fast-approaching era of quantum computing by implementing quantum-secure key distribution solutions that are not only fully IoT operable and end-user device-applicable (impossible for QKD and limited for PQC), they function over today’s Internet.

Ultra-fast, with throughputs up to gigabits per second and magnitudes of entropy beyond anything on the market today, while being extremely lightweight and energy-efficient, QEEP is even NIST-800-22 and DIEHARDER compliant. Industry leading performance, together with plug-and-play deployment on present infrastructure and 100% compatibility with existing network and technology investments – QEEP offers organizations an exceptionally cost-effective, evolutionary upgrade path to quantum-secure communications.

Our QiSpace (Digital Quantum-Secure Key Distribution Platform), and CipherSpace (Drag-and-Drop Quantum-Secure File Exchange Desktop Application) – are enterprise-grade, business-ready and effortlessly scalable. And fully compatible with today’s Internet. So now enterprises can get ready for the quantum threat — by being ready for anything.

A new quantum safe cryptographic technique that can be implemented on today’s computer and Internet technology and upcoming quantum Internet… is significant, truly innovative … and will have high impact.

Michel Barbeau, Professor and Director School of Computer Science, Carleton University

Carrying forward in the spirit of our CSO Dr. Kuang’s pioneering “semi-classical formalism” (so-termed by NASA, 2012), Quantropi is committed to preserving truth and trust in the face of imminent quantum computing threats to our Internet infrastructure, by bridging classical computing with quantum computing over a computational basis — in other words, by making information speak quantum. When it comes to securing sensitive data, Quantropi is the only quantum communications solution provider anywhere that can ensure perfect secrecy here, today and forever – offering a viable evolutionary upgrade path to total security, and confidence.That’s because any enterprise which deploys Quantropi’s platform achieves not only immediate quantum-proof security, but also ultra-efficient client-side implementation. Simply put, with QiSpace™, every secure action consumes less time and energy than its direct legacy equivalent. Less energy equals lower cost. In fact, with the advantage of gross savings on both energy and infrastructure, organizations will net a cost benefit over current installed technology —  savings that will only increase over time.
