Q-Net

Plug-n-play. Maintenance-free. Futureproof.


The next revolution in network cybersecurity, Q-Net Security (QNS) improves infrastructure resilience by cloaking end point and enterprise devices thereby protecting it from cyberattacks. This hardware-only solution breaks the unending cycle for software solutions of [patch / compromise / patch / compromise / …] The QNS hardware-enforced microsegmented solution is drop-in easy, maintenance-free, and ideal for legacy heterogeneous networks. There are no endpoint agents to install, no network changes to make, and it never needs patching. This solution aligns perfectly to improve resiliency of OT networks in utilities, manufacturing, financial and other critical national infrastructure verticals.


HardSec: A New Cybersecurity Option


Cybersecurity discussions, up to now, have been exclusively about software vulnerabilities, patches, and updates. This is natural since the subject of Cybersecurity is about unauthorized individuals obtaining access to critical software systems via global communications networks.


What’s wrong with this exclusive approach and what advantages does the new hardware security (HardSec) option provide?


As one generation of hacker tools is defeated the next generation is being developed and deployed. Thus utilities, and other organizations, find themselves in the expensive resource consuming cycle of software update, new attack, further update or replacement, … An alternative approach involves the installation of hardware which is invisible to authorized software and their users and impenetrable by unauthorized entities.

HardSec approaches the issue of unauthorized system intrusion with purpose-built hardware to create an impervious barrier between defined endpoints and all remote attackers. This electronic barrier replaces

cybersecurity software with purpose-built hardware capable of providing cybersecurity functionality whose immutable platform can deliver a provably-secure and quantum compute-resistant solution.


Key Takeaways


Hardware-based approaches can provide many advantages over traditional software-based solutions, including:

  1. A drop-in secure overlay without modifying existing infrastructure and endpoints

  2. De minimis maintenance and no patching

  3. Quantum compute-resistant security today
