Quantum cryptography is a secure technique for transferring secret keys over a distance, created based on the laws of physics. The current method of transferring the secret key is designed using unverified mathematical assumptions. Quantum cryptography is different from traditional cryptographic systems. It is based on physics rather than mathematics. Quantum cryptography key distribution guarantees secure communication. It involves both the parties to produce and share the randomly generated secret key which can be used to encrypt and decrypt the messages. It ensures the document or message transmitted remains confidential to everyone except the person with the key. Depending on the requirements of end-users, quantum cryptography solutions can strengthen key distribution attributes that include confidentiality of key, authentication of key, rapid key delivery at lower rate, and robustness of key delivery. It can operate independent of distance & location i.e. few tens of kilometers through fiber cable, and can resist network traffic while delivering the key over systems. Quantum cryptography solutions are considered a great technique; therefore, organizations such as Google, Microsoft, Baidu, and IBM are investing huge amounts in quantum cryptography solutions in order to exponentially speed up the machine computing process.

Security is a major concern driving the growth of the quantum cryptography solutions market.  Continuous growth of IT networks deployed for various business transactions and enterprise level communications.
