Network security veteran Alan Panezic will help technology companies prepare for quantum threat
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7, 2017 /CNW/ -- ISARA Corporation, the leading provider of security solutions for the quantum computing age, today announced the opening of a Silicon Valley office to better collaborate with technology customers integrating the company's patented encryption techniques.
Alan Panezic, ISARA's vice president of strategic partnerships, will help West Coast partners prepare for the significant security challenges and threats posed by the advent of large-scale commercial quantum computing. Panezic, who recently joined Waterloo, Ontario-based ISARA from Telenav, has deep experience in network security and connected devices – and is the holder of six wireless technology patents.
"As the quantum age is about to dawn, there is growing awareness of the need to prepare existing systems for the very real security threat a new breed of computer poses to everything from bank records to autonomous cars," Panezic said. "There is not a single sector within technology that shouldn't be assessing how to ensure their systems are quantum safe. Expanding our operations to Silicon Valley gives ISARA easier access to our growing customer base."
ISARA in September announced the release of its newest version of the ISARA Radiate Security Solution Suite. ISARA Radiate 1.3 gives OEMs the ability to integrate quantum-safe security measures into their existing commercial products and networks to protect today's data from future quantum computer attacks. ISARA Radiate is the first complete solution that offers a high-quality implementation of quantum-safe algorithms and integration tools built by developers for developers.
"From our home in Canada's Quantum Valley, ISARA is collaborating with technology companies, banks and government agencies to safeguard critical data with quantum-safe cryptography," said ISARA CEO Scott Totzke. "Establishing a full-time presence among the world's top technology innovators allows ISARA to be even more responsive to the needs of our partners as large-scale quantum computing becomes a commercial reality."
