Quantum Computing Inc. (QCi), which specializes in quantum optics and nanophotonics technology, and European cybersecurity company Recyber (previously Assured Cyber Protection) are helping organizations protect their digital assets against evolving cyber threats.

Recyber has purchased four of QCi's Reservoir Computer products and its Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) and is using these quantum technologies in its security algorithms, the companies stated. Accordingly, Recyber can help its customers detect and respond to cyberattacks in real-time.

QCi's Reservoir Computer Powers Edge Computing

Reservoir Computer is a portable reservoir computing device that can perform computational tasks with "unprecedented speed and efficiency," QCi noted. It facilitates data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Meanwhile, Reservoir Computer requires 80-95% less power consumption than traditional computers, QCi indicated.

In addition, Reservoir Computer's minimal size, weight, power and cost make it suitable for use as an edge computing tool, QCi said.

Quantum Random Number Generator Secures Digital Communications and Data

QNRG supports "true randomness for applications in cryptography, secure communications and data encryption," according to QCi. The technology is designed to deliver quantum-level randomness.

Furthermore, QNRG provides random number sequences and follows arbitrary statistical properties developed by end-users, QCi stated. It also enhances AI applications and security protocols and supports financial-modeling applications.

Recyber Helps Organizations Address Complex Security Problems

Together, Recyber and QCi offer "game-changing cybersecurity assessment, remediation and unparalleled protection," Recyber CEO Mitch Scherr noted.

QCi's technologies help Recyber simultaneously safeguard its customer data and protect its customers against insider threats and many others, Scherr stated. 

These technologies also enable Recyber to provide solutions that organizations can use to analyze their cyber hygiene, Scherr indicated.

What the Future Holds for QCi

Moving forward, QCi is looking to democratize quantum information and sensing technologies and make them accessible and practical for businesses and researchers around the world, the company said.

QCi remains focused on building quantum reservoir computers that bring quantum capabilities to AI, increase the speed and efficiency of AI and reduce power consumption in comparison to classical computers, the company stated.

Also, QCi is committed to ongoing research and development to further enhance its quantum solutions and expand its product offerings, the business noted. 

Along with these things, QCi said it plans to launch a hardware-based Quantum Reservoir Computer in 2024.
