Keeping personal data safe and secure is one of the greatest challenges posed by the rapid development of today’s information technology. To meet this challenge, Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) has emerged as a revolutionary technology that allows the distribution of digital keys needed for data protection with security guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics. Unlike existing technologies based on public key cryptography, QKD is future proof and is not vulnerable to technological advances in mathematics, engineering, or computing or even the realisation of a quantum computer.
Toshiba Europe Limited has pioneered the development of quantum communication (QKD) systems over the past decade, setting new standards for cryptography and data security, holding the record for both the highest secure key rate and longest distance on fibre. Toshiba quantum cryptography systems are deployed in secure fibre networks in the UK, mainland Europe, US and Japan.
We have recently launched a new business division in the UK to commercialise their world leading technology for securing optical fibre networks. We seek a Business Development Manager for the Quantum Technology business division. He or she will be responsible for developing business opportunities with partners in the EMEA region, supported by the technical and management teams in Cambridge, UK. This is an opportunity to drive market growth in a dynamic new business, supported by one of the best known companies in digital electronics and services.
