That’s why we’ve developed the Q-Network, which leverages “hardsec” to make strong encryption solutions in hardware. No general-purpose computers to be hacked, and no updates. Our system protects you on day one, and for years to come.



OUR TEAM STANDS BEHIND OUR PRODUCT ‐ THEY'VE DESIGNED IT FROM THE GROUND UP. Our leadership team has scientists, entrepreneurs, and engineers, all of whom have decades of direct experience in technology and encryption. They’ve led Q-Net Security to design and implement groundbreaking technology that is deployed in real commercial settings.
