CryptoNext Security, winner of the 2022 Innovation Prize ///
Created in 2019 after 20 years of research by Sorbonne University, INRIA and CNRS, CryptoNext Security is a publisher of quantum resistant cryptography solutions.
The systemic threat posed by the arrival of the quantum computer will have an impact on communications security and data confidentiality by breaking the public key cryptography used to secure networks, mobile applications, electronic signatures, blockchain, etc.
Its solutions, built around a post-quantum library integrating the algorithms currently being standardised, are natively hybrid and crypto-agile in accordance with the recommendations of security agencies. They enable rapid migration of IT/OT hardware and software infrastructures and have already been deployed for global defence, finance, software and equipment manufacturers in Europe and the United States. Supported by the Quantonation fund and the BPI, CryptoNext is identified by Gartner as one of the 5 leading players in the field.
