Quantum Secure Communications

Distributed Security for Critical Infrastructure and Government

Keep your secrets, Trust your network, Stay ahead of the bad guys

Modern infrastructure requires new security

Better security for decentralized and critical asset topologies

Critical infrastructure is composed of systems and assets so vital that successful security breaches would have debilitating impacts on national security, economic stability as well as public health and safety. As we rely more and more on digital systems to manage these systems, threat actors are exploiting outdated security postures for profit and even to affect geopolitical stability.

Many of these assets exist outside of traditional security perimeters, making it difficult for CIOs to access critical data without compromising security postures. Patero solutions have been designed to protect data and communications where critical data is transmitted across remote, mobile, decentralized or even hostile environments. The solution uses crypto-agile, hybrid post-quantum technologies to improve today’s protection for data in transit.

Security can no longer be an afterthought. Patero solutions are built to help CISOs, CIOs  make digital communications secure without added risk, cost or complexity.

Patero CryptoQoR

Patero QoR is a software-based
cryptomodule that combines traditional and
quantum-resistant algorithms to protect
critical communications. It is:

  • Hybrid

    QoR combines classic and quantum-resilient algorithms to improve, not replace, today's best encryption

  • Crypto - agile

    Switch cryptographic algorithms with minimal impact on operations to ensure security adapts as attacker creativity evolves

  • Efficient

    Adds little to no latency or overhead to data transmission even when network quality is poor

  • Enterprise-ready

    Field-proven, rapidly deployable anywhere (e.g. bare metal, cloud, edge gateways)

  • Standards-based

    Code contains certified algorithms and NIST-qualified post-quantum candidates for compliance and enhanced security

  • Standard cryptography

  • Quantum-resistant cryptography

  • Hybrid, multithreaded cryptography



Upgrade datacenter security and services

and supply chain

Trusted communication channels for mobile and distributed assets

and finance

Ensure rapid and trusted transactions


Protect patient records from harvest now, decrypt later


Comply with government mandates and directives

System Integrators

Upgrade security in critical infrastructure

For the Enterprise

Critical infrastructure without next-generation security is a strategic target. Patero protects networks so operators can:
Shrink attack surfaces
Work from home offices
Use data in cloud applications
Share information with partners
Prevent attack lateralization

Monetization strategies for OEMs and IIoT suppliers

Patero QoR works on any device, at the kernel level, without compromising performance. OEMs can install QoR to:
Differentiate product lines
Offer seamless PQC migration path
Enable partnerships
Set up secure remote monitoring or aftermarket services for additional revenue

For System Integrators

Successful digital transformation requires cyber-resilience. Embedding Patero PQC into digital architectures:
Makes services more competitive
Adds value to services without adding complexity or additional hardware
Offer seamless PQC migration path
If desired, enables Sls to extract data to offer services without compromising security

For Government

Federal agencies are under increasing pressure to modernize security operations and fortify networks. Patero QoR
Supports with EO14028 and NSM-10
Protects classified communication and critical assets
Enables seamless migration as PQC standards evolve
