Impenetrable encryption defends data from cyberterrorism
A hacker could crack a code, steal private information or shut down systems we rely on daily. Small enough to fit in a smart phone, our QkarD technology provides virtually impenetrable defense, using quantum cryptography to secure computers.
This novel encryption generates security at the subatomic particle level. If someone tries to hack in, that particle is altered, and the owner quietly alerted. And it works—even against super-powerful quantum computers.
