Crypto Quantique named as the only security ‘Startup Worth Watching in 2021’ in the EETimes Silicon 100 report

Crypto Quantique is the only security company referenced in the report.

LONDON, July 8th, 2021 — Crypto Quantique, a specialist in quantum-driven cybersecurity for the internet of things (IoT), has been named as a ‘Startup Worth Watching’ in the semiconductor industry’s most prestigious annual survey of recent entrants into market, the EETimes Silicon 100. Crypto Quantique is the only security company referenced in the report.

The 21st revision of the EETimes Silicon 100 e-book, compiled and curated by veteran industry journalist, Peter Clarke, is more detailed than ever this year. In its leader article, recently retired global editor-in-chief, Junko Yoshida noted that “The VC community, infatuated in recent years with software and “app” businesses at the expense of hardware-focused startups, has rediscovered semiconductors.”

Crypto Quantique has a unique IoT security offering in both camps with a combination of semiconductor hardware IP (QDID) and a universal IoT security platform (QuarkLink) for connecting IoT devices to hosted applications. QDID creates unique identities and cryptographic keys within the semiconductors at the heart of IoT devices then the complementary QuarkLink platform enables thousands of IoT devices to be securely connected to hosted applications in a few minutes without embedded designers needing specialist security knowledge.

Shahram Mossayebi, Crypto Quantique’s CEO, said, “To be cited by this report as the only security startup worth watching is a great privilege and testament to the hard work of both our semiconductor engineering and cryptography teams. Our QDID semiconductor IP has been independently verified as the robust against all known IoT attacks, which means that we’re making it easy for semiconductor companies to offer their customers EAL4+ level security within their devices. There’s no longer any excuse for selling hackable chips.”

About Crypto Quantique

Crypto Quantique has created the world’s most secure end-to-end IoT security platform. At its heart is the world’s first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP, called QDID, that generates multiple, unique, unforgeable cryptographic keys for devices manufactured using standard CMOS processes. The keys do not need to be stored and can be used independently by multiple applications on demand. When combined with cryptographic APIs from the company’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink, the solution creates a secure bridge between silicon, device, software, and solutions provider.

The company, which is based in London, UK, was co-founded by Dr Shahram Mossayebi (CEO), an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), a semiconductor designer with significant experience in complex parallel computer systems.
