Arqit joins Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner Program, completes integration to enable Quantum-Safe Encryption

Arqit, a leader in quantum-safe encryption, today announced it has joined the Fortinet Fabric-Ready Partner Program as a Technology Alliance Partner and completed its first integration between Arqit QuantumCloudTM and Fortinet’s FortiGate Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs).

Arqit’s QuantumCloudTM is the world’s first fully scalable cloud based symmetric key agreement platform, capable of creating zero trust quantum safe encryption keys at any device. By integrating QuantumCloudTM with Fortinet’s FortiGate Next-generation Firewalls, the resulting solution enables unbreakable quantum-safe encrypted connectivity between customer locations, keeping safe data both at rest and in transit. Arqit’s QuantumCloudTM uses unique symmetric key agreement software to provide quantum-safe keys which are consumed by Fortinet devices during the formation of secure tunnels.

Commenting, David Williams, Arqit Founder, Chairman and CEO said, “It is an honour to work with Fortinet, one of the great pioneers of cybersecurity. We’re excited to leverage our integration to deliver enhanced protection against sophisticated cyber attacks for customers. In conjunction with Fortinet’s industry-leading NGFWs, our strong, simple encryption enables governments and enterprises to realise stronger protection against cyber threats, and take a major step forward in removing the quantum threat from their risk registers.”

John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at Fortinet said: “We’re pleased to welcome Arqit into Fortinet’s Open Ecosystem as a Fabric-Ready technology alliance partner and

deliver this integrated solution for quantum safe firewalls to our global customer base.”
