Bloombase Extends Enterprise Data Security with Quantum Technologies

Genève, Switzerland and San Jose, CA USA, Jan 6, 2011 - Bloombase Technologies, one of the leading global information security companies from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced the extension of cryptographic key generation with quantum technologies as a joint effort between Bloombase and ID Quantique, and with the support of an extensive partner ecosystem and customers.

"With Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems extending support on ID Quantique Quantis random number generator, we once again raised the bar significantly for businesses that are in need to dramatically improve data confidentiality and integrity assurance meeting various stringent information regulatory requirements," said Sean Xiang, CEO of Bloombase Technologies. "Quantis-enabled Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems deliver the baseline required to run business critical applications with sensitive data in another level of security meeting various information privacy regulations including PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, SOX, etc, address data loss prevention (DLP) needs with unrivaled security, portability, manageability and scalability."

"Using truly random keys when encrypting data is essential to guarantee confidentiality. With the integration of Quantis in its Spitfire data security solutions, Bloombase is proving its commitment to best in class security to the benefit of its customers." said Grégoire Ribordy, CEO of ID Quantique.

Quantis is a physical random number generator (RNG) exploiting quantum optics process. Quantum physics is the only known theory that is fundamentally random. Quantis uses this property to guarantee true randomness for the key streams generated. Quantis has been evaluated by the Swiss Federal Office of Metrology (METAS), proving compliance of random output quality with its highest requirements.

Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems enable transformative data privacy and operational efficiency over and above what was previously achievable only with drastic application changes requiring tedious second development efforts that are costly and risky. With Bloombase Spitfire transparent data security solutions, even the most complex and throughput demanding data services will benefit from the privacy assurance capabilities for data availability, security and scalability. Combining ID Quantique Quantis random number generator, for the first time customers can rely on quantum technologies applicable to Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems providing uncompromised security and transparency over sensitive information on their business critical applications.
