The company claims to be the first to combine LiFi - a wireless communication technology that utilizes light to transmit data between devices - and quantum encryption technology for individual users. By marrying the two groundbreaking technologies, says the company, it is setting the stage for a new type of wireless networking with unparalleled security, improved speed, and reduced latency.
The release of its first two products, says the company, gives users instant quantum encryption right out of the box with LiFi infrastructure coming in the future. Light Rider LT and Light Rider Quantum both leverage quantum technologies, one using quantum software and the other with an onboard quantum processor. The end user can easily connect a variety of devices, including computers and mobile phones, through a software application. Next, the end user can select the data they wish to encrypt using the company's devices.
The products mitigate security risks by using light to transmit and encrypt data rather than radio waves traditionally used for Wi-Fi connections. By using the existing light in the physical workspace of the user, unwelcomed individuals cannot access the connection remotely, making it nearly impossible to hack. In addition, all the products leverage the power of quantum computing to encrypt data to ensure maximum security.
Quantum technology, says the company, is becoming mainstream with millions of TikTok users embracing a new app, Randonautica. The geolocation app uses quantum technology to generate random locations, the same technology that Light Rider products use to lock and unlock electronic devices.
"Traditional methods and technologies are full of vulnerabilities, so we created Light Rider to design and develop products that would enable the most secure network encryption possible," says Tony Lawrence, CEO and founder of Light Rider. "There is a global race to operationalize quantum technology, meaning those inflicting cyberthreats will have access to this superior technology. Our mission at Light Rider is to equip businesses, organizations and individuals
