John Prisco, president, and CEO of Quantum Xchange (quantumxc.com), provides a very detailed overview and analysis of the ever-changing data security industry, and how quantum computers are forcing every business and government agency to rethink how they send and receive sensitive data.
Quantum Xchange provides impeccable defense to commercial enterprises and government agencies that seek to keep their high-value assets safe and secure currently, and on into the future. As quantum computers will significantly change how organizations secure their most sensitive data, Quantum Xchange will continue to be a sought-after partner for any entity that requires the most premium security.
John Prisco has over 30 years of solid experience in the areas of cybersecurity, telecommunications, and quantum physics. He has championed successful revenue growth and provided quality leadership and management to a multitude of companies such as Triumfant, GeoVantage, and Ridgeway Systems. Prisco is devoted to Quantum Xchange’s mission, and its valued customers, partners, investors, and the many quality employees who have helped make Quantum Xchange the gold standard in data security.
Prisco discusses how his company is a respected provider of unbreakable quantum keys and secure communications, and how they are enabling organizations to send unbreakable data over any distance utilizing the laws of quantum physics. He elaborates on quantum key distribution, which is a secure communication process that implements a cryptographic protocol involving components of quantum mechanics. Via quantum key distribution, two parties can produce a shared random secret key known only to them, which can be used to encrypt and decrypt messages. As Prisco explains, the keys will change their state if an unauthorized party were to attempt to eavesdrop on them. Anything intercepted will be completely unusable by the breaching party and will not unencrypt any of the secure data whatsoever. The security expert gives a thorough analysis of the process that parties use to decide upon their encryption, as he details the transmission of photons, overall security, and the classification known as teleportation.
Prisco discusses the future of computing and progress that has been made in a relatively short time, and what advances are on the horizon. Large prime numbers that form the structure and base of today’s public-private key encryption protocols, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) will be easily and quickly factored by quantum computers and will leave mission-critical data exposed, and very much at risk.
Prisco states that with their system, even one photon that is tampered with will be evident to the end user. He explains quantum random number generators that work on photonic principles and provides an in-depth analysis of the wave nature of light that impacts the security of data in the process. Further, the data security executive discusses the future of data security and how his company, Quantum Xchange, will continue to address the shortcomings inherent with modern-day encryption.
