SandboxAQ Named to Fast Company’s Second Annual List of the Next Big Things in Tech

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 18, 2022 – SandboxAQ, an enterprise SaaS company delivering the combined impact of AI and Quantum technology (AQ), today announced that it has been named to Fast Company’s second annual Next Big Things in Tech list, honoring technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries—from agriculture and environment to productivity and artificial intelligence.

This year, 83 technologies developed by established companies, startups, or research teams are highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses, and society overall. While not all of the technological developments are available in the market yet, each one is reaching key milestones to have a proven impact in the next five years. Fast Company also recognized 41 honorable mentions.

Fast Company evaluated the SandboxAQ security suite of applications that helps enterprises and government organizations assess their security posture, and manage cryptography to protect sensitive data from emerging quantum threats such as SNDL attacks via implementing quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms and protocols. SandboxAQ not only protects organizations, but it also empowers them to reevaluate and strengthen their entire cyber architecture, building more adaptable and scalable IT architectures, efficiently replacing vulnerable algorithms, protocols, or cryptographic providers, and infusing cryptographic agility into their enterprise.

“We are thrilled SandboxAQ is being recognized by Fast Company for our innovative software,” says Jack Hidary, CEO of SandboxAQ. “We will continue to provide our customers with the best AQ security solutions to help protect the world from emerging quantum cybersecurity threats that could be perpetrated right now, before the availability of fault-tolerant quantum computers.”

“Fast Company is excited to highlight some of the organizations, of all sizes and industry backgrounds, whose technology advancements today will lead to a better tomorrow,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company.
