A new international partnership places Warpcom at the forefront of this emerging technology. Portugal has been a global university reference in quantum networks, which are expected to become popular in a period of 5 to 10 years, increasing the security of data and networks. Lisbon, April 21, 2021 – Warpcom, an Iberian ICT company with 100% Portuguese equity, is making a strong investment in quantum networks. The goal is to position itself as a leading technological integrator through partnerships with leading companies in this sector. “The exponential increase in computational power made possible by quantum computing opens up a world of opportunities around almost all aspects of modern life in the financial, military, medical and pharmaceutical fields. However, they also bring with them serious threats, mainly in terms of security, as this ability allows to quickly break the encryptions as they are implemented today, exposing Governments and companies to the breach of their Information”, reveals Carlos Alves Duarte, CEO of Warpcom. To support customers in preparing for this new era, Warpcom has established a partnership with the world’s leading European manufacturer in quantum networks, ID Quantique, assuming itself as its first partner in Portugal and Spain. With this alliance, it now includes in its offer the implementation of quantum encryption solutions, using quantum key generators. The main objective of this offer is to ensure secure communication in terms of confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of the information transmitted between two points, and also:
- Protect organizations from the post-quantum era;
- Optimize the TCO investment and ROI of existing encryption solutions;
- Add a new layer of value to cybersecurity solutions to meet the needs of different stakeholders.
“Warpcom has accumulated extensive experience in implementing and managing secure networks. We have several other technological partners with whom we are investing in greater integration with quantum networks. For this reason, we believe that we are in a privileged situation to support our customers’ transition to this new technology”, highlights Carlos Inocêncio, Chairman of Warpcom. In recent years, several European programs and projects have been developed, such as the EU Quantum Communication Infrastructure and the Quantum Internet Alliance, which put into practice some real applications in the world of quantum networks. This technology is seen as the technology of the future that will guarantee the sovereignty of nations. For this reason, Warpcom is already developing some pilot projects with entities in the health, financial, government. and military and internal security entities. “Portugal has been a reference at the academic level with many works already carried out and recognized internationally by the scientific community and the industry. At Warpcom we want to continue to be the spearheads in the implementation of this type of technology in the Iberian market”, says Carlos Alves Duarte. Grégoire Ribordy, CEO and Co-Founder of ID Quantique, refers that “We are very proud of partnering with Warpcom. Sensitive data is increasingly in danger from the growing threat of cyberattacks and more companies, especially banks and governments, are highly concerned by this issue. Our quantum technology provides the most secure encryption keys today, and in the quantum computing era, guaranteeing the highest level of trust for consumers. Our collaboration will help support customers requiring an increasing demand for security in Portugal and Spain”.
