Act Now for Your Personal Data Security

Email phishing is the single most used tool for malicious hacking. In this highly tech savvy and digitalized world, it is easy to make anything appear “authentic” when in fact it is a malicious actor behind a screen. We hear about phishing attacks on large companies daily, but we fail to raise the alarm that hackers also target INDIVIDUALS with phishing emails to hack into our network. We as individuals need just as much cybersecurity as any organization. Act before you are the next victim of a malicious attack.

It has been over 6 months since we were hit by a pandemic and most communication has shifted to a digital platform. According to the World Economic Forum, more than half of the world’s population is online. Additionally, a million users hop aboard the Internet daily and two-thirds of the population has a smartphone or a mobile device. This digital economy is fueled by DATA. Whether you are a large corporation, a government agency or a hacker group, the more data you own the more value you hold.

IronCAP sees the importance of cybersecurity for individuals and realizes it can be an expensive investment for them. Hence, we have launched a FREE personal version of our end-to-end email encryption product, IronCAP X, that protects individuals TODAY and in the QUANTUM world.

With IronCAP X we strive to eliminate email phishing. It is the world’s first quantum-safe, end-to-end email encryption, digital signature product. This simply means it is end-to-end encrypted with no intermediary server and the digital signature immediately authenticates a legit sender as opposed to a malicious one. Don’t be the next victim of any cyberattack.  Act now and learn more at: https://www.ironcap.ca/ironcap-x/

Prepare Today for Data Security Tomorrow

When we think about cybersecurity, we think of data protection and secure networks within the organization. While that is true…cybersecurity presents a much bigger scope of challenges and impact on everybody than most people know. According to researchers, cybersecurity directly affects the share prices. Studies show an average fall of 7.27% in two weeks after a publicly disclosed data breach. You don’t just lose data but also potential investor interest.

A post-quantum cybersecurity strategy is IMPERATIVE! Recently, financial institutions such as Visa and JP Morgan are said to be preparing threats from powerful quantum computers. Rajat Taneja, President of Technology at Visa said, “The for data we have is sensitive, and it is vast in quantity, so protecting that data is job number one for us.”

We are in the quantum era and it is a given fact that quantum computers can crack the current cryptographic encryption systems in seconds. RSA’s cryptographic method will be especially at risk. A quantum computing attack would not only compromise your data but also the digital-signature algorithms used to verify the identity of secure websites.

IronCAP is the one stop shop. Our unique cryptographic, quantum-safe technology shields your data from cyber threats today and in the quantum world. It is proven secure at a hackathon, vetted by industry experts and low-cost. IronCAP is available TODAY and seamlessly integrates with your existing systems. Tomorrow’s security depends on today’s preparedness.

Quantum Computers Are Commercializing

Industry leaders are racing to build the most powerful quantum computer. Whether you talk about IBM or IonQ or D-wave, their common goal is to develop a powerful and viable quantum computer for commercial use. IonQ just announced it has built the most powerful computer yet with 32 perfect qubits and claims to use IBM’s preferred quantum benchmark to hit a quantum volume of 4,000,000. In fact, D-wave too just launched a 5,000 qubits quantum computing platform. While D-wave uses a different technique from IBM, the goal remains the same, i.e. quantum supremacy.

As we know quantum computing has been around for a while.  It will for sure change the landscape of data security. In fact quantum hacking can be here already given the different platforms available today. The world needs to gear up for a powerful hack that could breach all existing security systems in place. NSA already warned government agencies and companies to be quantum-safe back in 2016. We need to advance our security systems to beat quantum hacking. IronCAP protects you from cyberthreats today and in the quantum world. Its unique cryptographic technology is quantum-safe providing bulletproof encryption for all your data. Our goal at IronCAP is to prevent cybercrime, data loss and promote a safe cyberspace.

From the top leadership to novice technology users, we all need to be cybersmart and proactive. IronCAP is industry vetted and confident it can keep you quantum-safe.
