“This is another step towards our goal of unified global protocols for the Quantum Cyber Security sector.” Said Henry Wao, lead engineer at Suretech’s labs within the USTC campus.
“Tencent has been working with USTC and its many departments for several years. It was important for us to continue this legacy and for our company to expand its partnerships both locally and internationally. By working with Tencent and its global partners, Suretech ensures that its technology is at the forefront of this growing industry.” He continued.
The LOI gives Tencent Holdings Limited’s Quantum divisions direct access to both the proprietary technology and code of Suretech, whilst also bringing Suretech into the fold of the group of companies currently working around the globe, in unison, to remain a step ahead of quantum technology and thereby ensure security and encryption services as the industry develops by maintaining a universal set of protocols.
“If we look back, this is just like when Bluetooth and Wifi protocols were being established. Leading entities within the field came together and instituted global protocols which ensured continuity and development of the said technologies for everyone.” Mr. Wao concluded.
