BOSTON--()--Aliro Quantum today announced the addition of Dr. Eric Ostby as Chief Product Officer. Aliro has developed the technology necessary to build multipurpose entanglement-based secure networks, and over the last 18 months has expanded its engagements with systems integrators, telecom providers, major government agencies, and academic and industry partners. Ostby brings more than ten years of experience leading product development for quantum technologies and will drive the next level of product capabilities and solutions to increase adoption of entanglement-based quantum networks.

Ostby will lead Aliro’s product management team and will be responsible for setting product strategy and roadmaps, driving product direction and commercialization, and working closely with customers and partners to incorporate product requirements. He has held product leadership roles for quantum software and hardware at both Rigetti Computing and Google. He played a key role in the demonstration of quantum supremacy at Google. Ostby also has over a decade of experience in strategy development and product management at Ingram Micro and Boston Consulting Group.

“It’s already been an incredible year for Aliro. We rolled out AliroNet, the world’s first comprehensive multipurpose entanglement-based quantum network solution, and revealed that EPB is deploying AliroNet on America’s first industry-led, commercially available quantum network,” said Jim Ricotta, CEO and Chairman with Aliro Quantum. “Dr. Ostby has had repeated success driving quantum technologies to market, and his expertise will be instrumental in increasing our momentum and product leadership in quantum networking.”

"Since spinning out of NarangLab, Aliro has demonstrated impressive growth,” said Dr. Prineha Narang, founder and Chief Technology Officer with Aliro Quantum. “We have built a team of world-class experts in quantum physics, quantum networking, classical networking, and security. With Eric Ostby in place to lead product, we know that we have the right team to accelerate the momentum for quantum networking.”

“I am excited to join Aliro as we gain traction with public and private sector customers deploying AliroNet for entanglement-based networking” said Dr. Eric Ostby, Chief Product Officer with Aliro Quantum. “Aliro has extensive technical expertise in this field and strong relationships with partners, vendors, and a growing list of customers. Quantum technologies promise to revolutionize and improve our lives. A critical piece of the puzzle is quantum networking, which enables the scaling of quantum solutions including sensors, secure communication, and quantum computers so they deliver value to customers.”
