QuintessenceLabs Cited in 2016 Gartner Hype Cycle Reports

QuintessenceLabs was recently identified in the 2016 Gartner Hype Cycle reports for both Data Security and Infrastructure Protection in the enterprise key management category. The inclusion in these reports validates the company’s offering of advanced quantum-based cybersecurity products that deliver the strongest keys, as well as comprehensive key and policy management capabilities.

The Hype Cycle for Data Security includes technologies that treat data as a “pervasive asset,” whether in public or private clouds or on premises, and are adapting to the new landscape of increasing risks from hacking, fraud, data residency and changing compliance. The Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Protection identifies technologies that help defend IT, with most developments targeting virtualized environments or advanced threats.

QuintessenceLabs is one of only eight vendors listed by Gartner in the enterprise key management (EKM) category in each report. The reports provide valuable information security strategy guidance including the importance of interoperability and of implementing rigorous data security policies to reduce risk. They highlight EKM as a growing category, with adoption ramping up with mainstream adoption expected in the five to 10-year timeframe.

“We are pleased to be cited in these influential reports and believe our inclusion reflects our ability to deliver high quality key and data security policy management solutions — critical elements of enterprise data security strategy,” said Vikram Sharma, Founder and CEO of QuintessenceLabs. “QuintessenceLabs’ Trusted Security Foundation (TSF) is the only commercially available platform for the centralized generation, management and protection of encryption keys that leverages unique quantum mechanics capabilities to fortify the protection of valuable information assets. With the TSF, not only are we an enabler for the growing adoption of pervasive data encryption, but we do so with a cost-effective and flexible turnkey solution.”

The QuintessenceLabs TSF is a highly secure platform, incorporating the security of a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module with advanced key and policy management, and a high-speed true random number generator from a quantum source, delivering the strongest foundation for data security. In addition, the TSF is designed to interoperate seamlessly with most encryption products, and drastically simplifies the implementation and expenditure of security deployments.
