QuSecure Contributes to White House Quantum Security Roundtable Addressing the Post-Quantum Cybersecurity Threat
QuSecure Uniquely Offers Quantum Resilient Platform Deployment Expertise to Discussion to Further the Development and Adoption of PQC
SAN MATEO, Calif. — Jan. 31, 2024 — QuSecure™, Inc., a leader in post-quantum cryptography (PQC), today announced it was invited to participate and contribute to a key White House Quantum Security Roundtable discussion to consider and help influence the impact from quantum computing on information security. QuSecure offered its unique, customer-driven experience in creating and implementing PQC solutions in both enterprise and government environments to the White House’s discussion around the looming post-quantum cybersecurity threat.
“The event was a success and I congratulate the government for collaborating with industry on attempting to address an existential threat,” said Aaron Moore, QuSecure EVP of Engineering. “We know that nation states are currently harvesting exabytes of encrypted data that are vulnerable to decryption once a cryptographically relevant quantum computer (CRQC) comes online. The exposure and exploitation of this information and the surprise it creates will be equivalent to what will be in essence the world’s greatest recorded ambush.”
During the Jan. 26 PQC Migration Roundtable, organized by the Office of the President of the United States and the White House, it was stated that “confidentiality of ephemeral sessions (e.g. TLS) should be the highest priority due to the relative ease of the transition and the threat of store-now-decrypt-later.”

We should incorporate the current PQC algorithms into our systems now by overlaying them on our current cryptographic modules. At worst we have the same level of security that we have today, and at best we become quantum–resilient and begin to future proof our national security.”
QuSecure recently won Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards from the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army, reinforcing its commitment to work with the federal government. These are examples of QuSecure’s leadership and innovation in PQC, a testament to the necessary collaboration between the federal and private sector to quickly and efficiently develop solutions to protect against the emerging threats from AI and quantum computing. This collaboration has been echoed by QuSecure’s co-founder and Chief Product Officer Rebecca Krauthamer, who is a member of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Futures Council on Quantum. While at the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this month, Krauthamer said that QuSecure and “the Council help to set the Davos agenda, driving policy and change we collectively need to capitalize on the good while preventing the bad that technology acceleration can bring.”
QuSecure’s QuProtect software enables organizations to leverage quantum-resilient technology and is currently available to test and deploy, helping to prevent today’s cyberattacks, while future-proofing networks and preparing for quantum cyberthreats. It provides quantum-resilient cryptography, anytime, anywhere and on any device including network, cloud, IoT (Internet of Things), edge devices, and satellite communications. Using QuProtect, organizations can implement PQC on the network without removing existing encryption so installation is fast and risk is minimal. QuProtect software uses an end-to-end quantum-security-as-a-service architecture that addresses the digital ecosystem’s most vulnerable aspects, uniquely combining zero-trust, next-generation post-quantum cryptography, crypto agility, quantum-strength keys, high availability, easy deployment, and active defense into a comprehensive and interoperable cybersecurity suite. The end-to-end approach is designed to protect the entire information lifecycle as data is communicated, used and stored.
QuSecure is a leader in post-quantum cybersecurity with a mission to protect enterprise and government data from quantum and classical cybersecurity threats. Its quantum-safe solutions provide an easy transition path to quantum resiliency across any organization. The company’s QuProtect solution is the industry’s first PQC software-based platform uniquely designed to protect encrypted communications and data with quantum-resilience using a quantum secure channel.
