SoftIron has integrated Arqit's Symmetic Key Agreement Platform (SKA-Platform™) into HyperCloud, SoftIron’s ready-to-run true private cloud experience, deployed on-premises or on the battlefield. This brings the security of symmetric encryption across data centre and edge compute environments without the need for additional infrastructure. It ensures customers win from optimal security, pace of deployment, performance, scalability and sovereignty.

The technology represents a strongly complementary offering and both companies will leverage their existing industry partnerships and defence customers.

"We are delighted to partner with SoftIron to bring Symmetric Key Agreement to the deployable cloud. The combination offers customers huge advantage in rapid and secure deployment of SoftIron’s impressive capability, compatible with the requirements of standards laid down for National Security Systems, and great synergy in our customer bases," said David Williams, Chairman and CEO of Arqit Limited.

"We are excited to have Arqit join the SoftIron+Co Partner Program as a Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) that will enable all of Arqit’s best-in-class encryption solutions to our customers," said Phil Straw, CEO of SoftIron. "By integrating Arqit's SKA-Platform™ with our true private cloud solutions, we are empowering organisations to stay ahead of evolving cyber threats and ensure the integrity and confidentiality of their data in rapid on-premises and battlefield deployments. Complying with the new standards laid down for National Security Systems in using symmetric encryption but in a manner that is flexible and fast gives us an important edge."
