Quantum Computing: The Future of Data Security

Quantum Computing: The Future of Data Security

Quantum computing technologies may soon provide protection from “mega-hacks” that expose huge amounts of sensitive information, like credit card numbers, health records, and high-value intellectual property. These costly cyber attacks put pressure on military, governments, institutions, and businesses to develop new ways to keep data secure during transmission.

This article explains what quantum computing is and how it is reshaping the data security landscape. Quantum entanglement, super-positioning, and quantum key distribution (QKD) are also reviewed in order to show how quantum information science can be used to create ultra-safe networks.

Wi-fi Assist and Other Data Busting Disasters

This week is all about mobility. Today we’ll be covering cost control and wireless features that can blow your wireless costs through the roof.

Mobile data is such a delicate dance, trying hard to stay within the confines of 3GB or 10 GB per month. And then accidentally downloading that app, or watching a movie preview while not on wi-fi.
