TORONTO I OTTAWA, ON, June 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Crypto4A Technologies Inc. (C4A), a Canadian company, today announced its next generation of multi-cloud-enabled hybrid infrastructure for identity-based digital transformations with its QxCloud ™ and QxCloud ™ as a service.
QxCloud ™ provides a set of next-generation features that modernize traditional HSM, PKI, and CA features for encryption in cloud, null-trusted, and remote work environments. QxCloud ™ enables the adoption of hybrid certificate techniques and post-quantum cryptographic algorithms, which ensure cost-effective cryptography and security for today’s identity-based application environments.
QxCloud ™ has been designed to allow the company to retain “quorum-based dual control” of the keys that support its devices, data, and applications to scale in the cloud, on the edge, and within the expanded enterprise.
According to Gartner, “The significant growth of cloud computing, along with the specific security requirements it presents, is driving the emergence of a set of new technologies, such as cloud security stance management (CSPM). , the cloud workload protection (CWPP) and cloud infrastructure rights management (ICES) platform, which are adapting to be effective in increasingly hybrid cloud environments where business workloads are processed “.
“The future requires us to trust and verify identities in the cloud, on the edge and at scale with cryptographic speed and agility. We look forward to working with partners and customers in adopting these new security technologies,” he said. John Scott, CEO of C4A.
Bruno Couillard, founder and CTO of C4A, added: “QxCloud ™ leverages our patented Qx ™ Trust Architecture (QxTA ™) which provides new advanced rights management techniques that evolve the M from N approach we started almost 25 years ago. Access to and use of sensitive keys can be controlled using highly flexible quorums while automatic backup of these sensitive keys is guaranteed using M-based techniques from N. In addition, QxTA ™ also guarantees complete cryptographic separation of QxCloud ™ management and sensitive key material management while ensuring full portability of cryptographic material to give companies the flexibility to choose the best race solutions ”.
John O’Connor, Added C4A Vice President of Product Management: “We have listened to our customers and partners face the challenges of migrating their trusted infrastructure to the cloud. QxCloud ™ and QxCloud ™ as a service represent the first infrastructure truly modern platform designed with cloud migration and cryptographic migration as key drivers addressing the specific security requirements needed for various hybrid cloud environments. “
Based on the same QxTA ™ on which QxEDGE ™ is based, QxCloud ™ rethinks the traditional cryptographic architecture, processes, and functionalities for zero-confidence cryptographic requirements based on the current emerging identity.
Some of the features that QxCloud provides:
- Cloud-scale performance and elasticity for workloads and transactions
- Quorum-based remote rights management features for critical cloud infrastructures
- HSM-level threat mitigation that protects not only keys, but applications and data
- Quantum Assured Security Module (QASM ™), which provides hardware-based cryptographic agility that guarantees hybrid and post-quantum cryptographic migrations now and in the future.
- Native support for security applications and partner integrations that use SecDevOps computers running within QxCloud ™ to protect the workload in the cloud
QxCloud ™ as a service
QxCloud ™ as a C4A service is being launched separately with several cloud providers that allow their customers to access QxCloud ™ functionality as an enterprise service. This will help the company with its migrations to the cloud, expanding its capabilities in the cloud or on-premises, while ensuring cryptoagility for new post-quantum requirements.
Crypto4A’s QxCloud ™ will be available to our early access partners during the third quarter of 2021 with general availability during the fourth quarter of 2021. The QxCloud ™ service as a service will be available to early access partners during the fourth quarter of 2021. Technical specifications and capabilities are available for early access customers.
About Crypto4A- C4A QxTA ™ helps enable the agility of cryptography in Zero Trust environments. Developed by founders who created earlier cryptographic key architectures with Luna HSM, the patented QxCloud ™ architecture accelerates digital transformations, cloud migrations by providing fast and secure operation of business and security workloads from anywhere in the world. world.
