ADVA wins major German innovation award with its quantum-safe encryption technology

Share

ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that it has won one of Germany’s most renowned innovation prizes for its quantum-safe encryption technology. The accolade recognizes the value of ADVA’s highly secure crypto module, which integrates all essential security functions and provides comprehensive protection for sensitive data on the move. It offers the best available network protection even against the threat of quantum computer attacks. By simplifying the certification and regulatory approval of ADVA’s encryption technology, it also accelerates time to market for customers offering highly secure services. The Innovation Award Thuringia is one of Germany’s most respected awards for technology development.

“Encryption solutions commonly used in sectors like utilities, government and financial networks are not sufficient to withstand attacks that leverage the unique capabilities of emerging quantum computers. Any critical infrastructure still using legacy encryption will become vulnerable, and this is a serious issue for the global economy and society,” said Uli Schlegel, senior director of product management at Network Security, ADVA. “To counter the quantum threat, we’ve developed our highly secure crypto module. It makes it easy for customers to access the industry’s most robust network protection technology. Integrating all essential security functions, our crypto module offers protection even from criminals intent on harvesting data today in order to use it when quantum computers become available.”

The continued advancement of quantum computer technology means transport solutions must be ready for a rapidly changing security landscape. ADVA’s high-security crypto module uses cryptographic algorithms that cannot be broken by even the most powerful quantum computers. It also simplifies certification and approval processes, which can be a time-consuming and expensive bottleneck. Researched and developed at ADVA’s secure facilities in Meiningen, Germany, the new module creates full transparency for customers and regulatory authorities while avoiding any interference.

“The emergence of quantum computers will bring many benefits to society, but they will also present us with a major challenge. Soon, attackers using quantum algorithms will be able to successfully compromise established encryption solutions with very serious consequences. In fact, hackers are stealing encrypted data today intending to leverage quantum technology to crack it at a future date,” said Michael Roth, GM at Network Security, ADVA. “The quantum threat is real and it’s urgent. That’s why we’ve spent the last few years developing our high-security crypto module, a quantum-safe technology that’s both easy to integrate and capable of safeguarding sensitive data now and well into the future.”

ViiV Healthcare Unveils a New Global Study Revealing Three Quarters of People Believe There Are Still Negative Perceptions When It Comes to People Living With HIV1.12.2022 01:01:00 CET | Press release

ViiV Healthcare, the global specialist HIV company majority owned by GSK, with Pfizer and Shionogi as shareholders, today announced new data from a perceptions survey which unveils a widespread gap in public knowledge and understanding of HIV worldwide.

While the majority of people surveyed did report feeling comfortable with physical contact, including holding hands (76%) or hugging (75%), only 1 in 2 people would feel comfortable dating someone living with HIV. Concerningly, the survey also found that a quarter of adults (25%) believe that it is not appropriate for employees to talk about HIV in the workplace, a factor continuing to perpetuate HIV as a taboo subject.1 The survey, conducted online by Opinium in 2022, collected
