Arqit (Nasdaq: ARQQ, ARQQW) (“Arqit”), a leader in quantum-safe encryption, announces the application of Arqit’s QuantumCloud™ on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Amazon S3 is an object storage service used by millions of customers of all sizes and industries that offers industry-leading availability, security, and performance, and virtually unlimited scalability.

Arqit’s QuantumCloud™ is a cloud-based symmetric key agreement software platform designed to deliver encryption that is flexible, lightweight, and quantum safe.
This announcement follows the deployment of Arqit’s QuantumCloud™ on AWS. Now QuantumCloud™ will be available as a redundant encryption service to AWS customers, and to enable product development with Arqit’s customers (such as Traxpay).
Commenting, David Williams, Arqit Founder, Chairman and CEO said, “By working with AWS, the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud services provider, we will be able to make available our product to a large audience of customers. Amazon S3 is an incredible tool powering digital transformation for so many organisations globally. Arqit’s QuantumCloud™ integration with Amazon S3 offers a powerful opportunity for mass market availability of our product. We are proud to enable such a large cohort of customers to potentially realise quantum safety on the leading secure cloud.”
An example of Arqit’s customers using the service is Traxpay:
Traxpay MD Markets & Sales, Markus Wohlgeschaffen, said: “Arqit’s technology, enabled by AWS cloud services, is highly compatible with our supply chain finance ecosystem and uniquely capable of delivering clearly indentifiable, quantum-safe digital finance instruments which are urgently needed in the digital trade era. We are now able to create new products for our customers that allow an unrivalled level of flexibility in liquidity management, efficiency, transaction speed, cost reduction and, most importantly, the highest levels of security.”
