Quantum Xchange, a global leader in quantum-safe products and services for crypto agility and quantum readiness, in a recent press conference, has announced that its key distribution system, Phio Trusted Xchange (TX), has met the requirements of the Cisco Secure Key Integration Protocol (SKIP). With that, it can now use quantum-safe keys from Phio TX to protect its network traffic.

Additionally, Phio TX distributes continuously rotating encryption keys to various nodes on the Cisco network as per the quantum-safe manner over any distance or media type. This enables Cisco customers to benefit from the strongest encryption available to protect and encrypt data in transit today and in the quantum future, backed by modern security best practices. Also, Cisco VPN users achieve further security benefits from the continuous key rotation in the Phio TX hive.

This integration of Quantum Xchange with Cisco's SKIP protocol is the latest example of how the company is working with leading infrastructure providers to offer their customers and the market a practical path to quantum readiness and infinitely stronger security today. The firm further protects its customers against advances in computing and mathematics by providing a practical, crypto-agile solution.
