London-based quantum and mobile security start-up Crypta Labs has appointed US technologist, entrepreneur and startup mentor Sukanta Ganguly to its Advisory Board.

Sukanta is currently CTO of Entryless, a SaaS expense management solution based in Menlo Park, California. Over the course of his 20+ year career, he has held a number of senior management and board-level roles, and for the past 15 years he has been an angel investor, advisor and mentor to a portfolio of successful startups. Sukanta has a breadth of expertise in areas such as enterprise networking solutions, fintech and security.

Speaking about his involvement with Crypta Labs’ Advisory Board, Sukanta said;

“Innovation is about building something better, that does not yet exist, and the [eventual] fulfilment of someone using your product or service. Innovation is at the core of Crypta Labs’ efforts, as the only company in the world commercially developing a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), for use on a mobile device”.

Random Numbers are used to seed encryption; however, often these numbers aren’t truly random, but are Pseudo-Random Numbers, resulting in encryption could potentially be hacked. Crypta Labs is currently developing a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) for use on a mobile device. By harnessing the quantum property of light, Crypta Labs’ QRNG will result in truly random numbers, and encryption which is uncrackable.

Sukantra went on to say;

“The threat posed by insufficient encryption, especially within the IoT arena, is a real challenge to our financial, and in some cases physical, security. Crypta Labs is tackling this challenge head on, and I’m pleased to be joining their Advisory Board at this important time”.

Crypta Labs CEO, Joe Luong, commented,

“We are delighted that Sukantra will be working with Crypta Labs, and further bolstering the deep expertise of our advisory board, as well as our connections to the West Coast tech community. 

This has been a momentous 12 months for Crypta Labs; we have been joined by some of the brightest and best cybersecurity, fintech and IoT talent in the world – we are all proud to be working together on our innovative product offering”.
