ID Quantique logo

ID Quantique (IDQ), the Swiss provider of quantum-safe security solutions, integrates with the Fortinet Security Fabric to provide long-term security for critical data transported over Virtual Private Networks (VPN).

Fortinet’s flagship next-generation firewall, FortiGate, will offer a dedicated interface for quantum keys based on the ETSI key delivery standard. FortiGate is a key part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, which has an open architecture and interfaces to enable technology partners in Fortinet’s Open Fabric Ecosystem to develop integrated solutions for comprehensive cybersecurity.

This joint solution will be the first commercially available quantum-safe VPN platform built on a standardized interface. QKD is added as an extra layer of security on top of the encryption taking place at Layer 3 to protect data in transit. The key use cases of this joint solution will be for deployments of Quantum-Safe L3 VPNs in Data Center Interconnection (DCI) and 5G backbones.
