Network security has been a battle of wits for all organizations: cybercriminals try to find loopholes and administrators strive to close them. Ironically, a majority of the organizations today often follow a typical approach and use inferior cybersecurity technologies. As hackers presently have the potential to breach even well-fortified firewalls, protecting an organization’s valuable assets and business information has become a great challenge. In order to combat these growing cyber threats and raise the bar for cybersecurity, Missouri-based Q-Net Security, Inc. (QNS) brings to market the most advanced, game-changing national intelligence grade cybersecurity solution that is simple to implement, incredibly easy to manage, superfast, and quantum compute-resistant. “Our forte lies in protecting the data. Even if the network is broken we prevent cybercriminals from accessing confidential information,” begins Ron Indeck, CEO of Q-Net Security.

Q-Net Security uses a purpose-built device that creates an impenetrable and immutable barrier protecting each of the endpoints within the client’s existing network. Each device, known as a Q-Box, also provides quantum compute-resistant security that will defend against future attacks. QNS not only abides by top US security standards but also absolutely prevents bad actors and malicious threat vectors from breaching any protected endpoint. QNS utilizes a US Intelligence standard approved for Top Secret communications, AES-256-GCM encryption, which makes brute-forced encryption computationally intractable. In addition, QNS changes keys after every packet or transaction, further reducing the risk of exposure. With QNS, organizations can effortlessly manage regulatory compliance such as HIPAA, GDPR-EU, and other governmental regulations. QNS offers industry best practice and raises the bar for compliance with confidentiality of sensitive information and stability within critical networks.

Clients can implement QNS within any IP network. All they have to do is plug a Q-Box into their existing networked computers with point-to-point communications, register it, and they’ll be up and running. The Q-Box operates independently of the endpoint, needing no agents and having no impact on existing configuration or performance. One of the main reasons why customers are inclined towards QNS is because of its cost effectiveness and easy to use systems. "Our guarantee isn't about not letting anybody penetrate a network, but it's about once they get in, they won't be able to access any information on that network because of the next-gen security,” emphasizes Indeck. The company also has developed a robust Admin Portal (QPM), which gives clients a single-pane view of all the user credential management, network security, and server security.

The effectiveness of QNS security solutions can be well illustrated using a customer success story. One QNS client in the critical infrastructure space had issues securing their network. When they decided to adopt a robust network security solution, their in-depth market search came to an end with Q-Net Security. With the help of QNS, the client was able to manage different substations, generation units, and pumping stations securely with a single control device that initializes and monitor search endpoint’s Q-Box.

In the banking ATM market, most ATMs are controlled by vintage general-purpose processors that are relatively easy to hack. To address this challenge, QNS built a hardware based security solution that protects ATMs from nefarious activities, such as the widespread “jackpotting” attack.

Battling security threats will have more complexity going forward. Indeck envisions a holistic approach to revamp network security framework in accordance with the technological advances and security challenges the future holds. "Our ultimate objective is to secure the business world—starting with critical infrastructure, to enterprise networks, and finally consumer applications," ends Indeck
