Commitment to Security
All of Global Telecom’s devices utilize advanced blockchain and host-less connectivity to add layers of security to the most susceptible access points in the Internet of Things. The module is the foundational technology in each of the billions of devices in the IoT. The prevalence of the module across the IoT, and its important role of granting access to a network, combine to make it the favored target for hackers.
Global Telecom’s approach to secure connectivity – which also includes advanced development of quantum cryptography – reduces to nearly zero the probability that a hacker can exploit a random toaster, air conditioner or medical monitor in the IoT as a means of gaining access to critical systems. Post-quantum computing resistance is rapidly gaining acceptance in the tech sector not just an alternative cybersecurity measure, but an essential approach. Global Telecom’s Quantum Cryptography Engine (QCE), once complete and ready for in-the-field testing in 2021, will serve as a true Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG).
