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 cyberattacks would have debilitating impacts on national security and economic stability. As we rely more and more on technology to manage critical infrastructure, modernizing security is essential to effective digital transformation.

Patero solutions combine data-driven discovery tools and new security technologies to remediate security postures without compromising performance or creating system complexity.

Patero CryptoQoR

Patero QoR is software-based
network security technology that uses state-of-the-art cryptography to protect networks and data against traditional and quantum-powered attacks. 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

  • Operating Sytems

  • RHEL 9
  • Oracle Linux 9 UEK 
  • SELinux
  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • Debian 10
  • Debian 11
  • Yocto Linux
  • Standard cryptography

  • Quantum-resistant cryptography

  • Hybrid, multithreaded cryptography

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
