Quantum Encryption Technology: The Future of Encryption

ID Quantique is a small security firm based in Geneva, Switzerland. They specialize in quantum mechanics to boost data security. Their Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a method by which a sender transmits a key encoded with photons to a recipient. This is not new technology, this will protect data from hackers and is viewed as more secure than traditional encryption because it immediately alerts whenever a quantum line has been accessed allowing for administrators to turn off the communications line before any data is accessed.

With the recent events involving NSA leaks by Edward Snowden that revealed the US Government has the ability to quickly access data from individuals and companies around the world.
