World leading cyber security from Australia
In November 2015, Australian company QuintessenceLabs was named one of the top emerging security companies by the Global Security Innovation Network for its quantum cyber security technology. QuintessenceLabs has already attracted interest in its products from companies such as Westpac, IBM and Northrop Grumman.
A key to its success is working closely with Australian National University researchers to draw on cutting edge quantum networks research when developing solutions to significant cyber security challenges. Cooperation between businesses and researchers is critical to building a highly successful cyber security industry in Australia.
QuintessenceLabs’ technologies leverage the quantum properties of lasers to strongly safeguard sensitive data — personal, commercial or classified — as it is collected, communicated and stored.
