"As renowned national security experts, the leadership and insights they bring will undoubtedly accelerate our journey toward a world where quantum-resistant, end-to-end encryption is the standard and the availability and theft of unencrypted data becomes a thing of the past."

“I am proud to be assisting CyberProtonics in its work providing the next-generation platform to help companies strengthen their cybersecurity posture in this ever-evolving threat landscape,” said Jay M. Cohen. “CyberProtonics cryptosystem can reduce the risk of ransomware and enables CISOs and their organizations to achieve ‘best practices’ results around cybersecurity metrics including regulatory compliance or cost reductions in cyber liability insurance coverage.”

These are essential elements for widespread adoption, and I look forward to working with them as they engage with organizations on this endeavor.”
