Quantum-safe cryptography: What it means for your data in the cloud

October 2, 2019


Quantum computing holds the promise of delivering new insights that could lead to medical breakthroughs and scientific discoveries across a number of disciplines. It could also become a double-edged sword, as quantum computing may also create new exposures, such as the ability to quickly solve the difficult math problems that are the basis of some forms of encryption. But while large-scale, fault-tolerant quantum computers are likely years if not decades away, organizations that rely on cloud technology will want cloud providers to take steps now to help ensure they can stay ahead of these future threats.
