NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Qrypt, the pioneering quantum-secure encryption company, announced today the appointment of Ken Dixon, the CEO of Tillman FiberCo LLC, to its Board of Advisors (BoA). Dixon brings more than 30 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, including over two decades in senior leadership at Verizon.
Dixon is currently the CEO of Tillman FiberCo LLC, a company working to build and operate a 100% Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) network to deliver industry-leading symmetric gigabit broadband and internet access and services to residential and commercial customers. Prior to Tillman FiberCo LLC, Dixon served as group president and in other leadership roles across Verizon’s consumer and business markets. He led sales, marketing, operations and customer service strategy for voice, data and video services in Verizon's wireline territory.
“Telecommunications serves as the backbone of global connectivity and information exchange, requiring us to handle vast amounts of sensitive information, including personal customer data, financial transactions, corporate communications and government intelligence. Confidence in privacy is clearly of the utmost importance,” said Dixon. “Qrypt is taking telecommunications to the next level of data protection with research-backed, quantum-secure encryption so our industry can maintain our commitment to public trust.”
Services and providers in telecommunications are prime targets for data breaches and “harvest now, decrypt later” (HNDL) attacks. Nation states and cybercriminals are stealing encrypted personal data and intellectual property to decrypt when quantum computers come online. Qrypt offers a quantum-secure encryption solution that removes the vulnerability of key transmission. By implementing quantum-secure encryption now, telecommunications companies can protect customer data indefinitely and future-proof their security and compliance.
“Providing secure communications is critical to protecting our right to privacy. Our team at Qrypt is thrilled to welcome Ken Dixon to our board to further our mission of protecting the world’s data in the telecommunications industry,” said Kevin Chalker, CEO and co-founder of Qrypt. “By bringing together industry experts across telecommunications, financial services and other highly regulated industries, we can strengthen critical infrastructure and permanently protect data through quantum-secure encryption.”
Qrypt protects against the quantum threat through the seamless integration of quantum entropy hardware with cryptographic key generation software. When traditional encryption algorithms become obsolete, every byte of harvested data will be exposed. Qrypt eliminates “harvest now, decrypt later” (HNDL) risk and guarantees data privacy with its revolutionary peer-reviewed encryption technology. Available as-a-service, on-premises, or on any device. For more information and to learn more about Qrypt, visit www.qrypt.com.
