QuintessenceLabs (QLabs), in partnership with PKWARE, launched four virtual and hardware key management appliances as part of the company’s line of Smartcrypt appliances. These Smartcrpyt appliances are integrated with the QLabs’ Trusted Security Foundation (TSF) solution, which includes a high speed random number generator, an advanced key and policy manager and an embedded FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module for key storage.
QuintessenceLabs’ TSF solution includes qStream, a full-entropy true random number generator that delivers high quality encryption keys derived from a quantum source. The random nature of these keys makes them totally unpredictable and enables PKWARE to offer the strongest data encryption quality to government agencies and commercial clients.
Moreover, the TSF provides advanced key and policy management capabilities with qCrypt. The fully interoperable and flexible key and policy manager enables a centralized management of cryptographic objects with full lifecycle usage, policy control and advanced replication capabilities.
The partnership of QuintessenceLabs with PKWARE creates an enhanced and seamless enterprise level data protection solution right from key generation, management, and storage through to data focused encryption delivering an end-to-end encryption solution for the highest security.
