Post-Quantum is a company founded in 2009 to develop advanced technologies for countering the emerging threat of quantum cryptanalysis. The company has branched into Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) and blockchain-enabled enterprise SaaS.
Post-Quantum has raised a total of $11.2M in funding over 3 rounds, including the Class 51 - Barclays 2015 Spring cohort of Techstars raising an estimated $10,418,000.
In January 2019 Post-Quantum's NTS-KEM ('Never The Same - Key Encapsulation Mechanisms') cryptosystem was selected for the 2nd round of the NIST Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization Project. It was 1 of 17 second-round candidates for public-key encryption and key-establishment algorithms. The goal of the NIST PQC Standardization Project is to create a set of standards for protecting electronic information from attack by the computers of both tomorrow and today.
