PQShield has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with leading systems integrator Tata Consultancy Services to help its clients transition to post-quantum cryptography (PQC) solutions. This partnership will support TCS’s clients in modernising their cryptographic infrastructure and migrating to PQC efficiently and securely.

PQShield has also partnered with eShard, a provider of side-channel analysis and testing tools, to accelerate the implementation of advanced side-channel secured implementations of PQC for high-security standards across industries.

Demand for PQC solutions is surging globally, following recent developments that have put quantum preparedness high on the cybersecurity agenda. Governments worldwide, including the US, the UK, and Germany, have launched national quantum strategies and provided additional guidance on securing business and federal networks against quantum-enabled cybersecurity threats.

There is now an urgent need for a practical approach to assessing risk, as well as a pathway to mitigating the quantum threat.. To address this, we have developed a Whitepaper in conjunction with Robert Hannigan, Cybersecurity Adviser and former Director of GCHQ (who established the UK National Cyber Security Centre) to help organsations take the first steps to modernise their cryptography. You can find the guidelines here.

In recent years, we have consolidated our position as the only established provider of post-quantum solutions at all stages of the PQC journey and these agreements reflect our desire to advance our already world-leading cryptographic IP as well as supporting the global migration to PQC as commercial demand for post-quantum cryptographic solutions grows.
