QuSecure Named as a Most Promising Unicorn in SC Media’s 2023 SC Awards Program
QuSecure Only Post-Quantum Cybersecurity Company Named by Judging Panel of Industry Leaders
SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#PQC–QuSecure™, Inc., a leader in post-quantum cybersecurity (PQC), today announced that it has been recognized as a 2023 SC Award finalist in the Excellence Award category for Most Promising Unicorn. The announcement was made as part of SC Media’s 2023 SC Awards coverage. Now in its 26th year, the SC Awards program is cybersecurity’s most prestigious and competitive program, recognizing the solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security.
“The SC Awards Program is one of the industry’s most important recognition programs, and it is extremely rewarding to be recognized by their panel of judges in the Most Promising Unicorn award category,” said Skip Sanzeri, QuSecure co-Founder and COO. “Our QuProtect solution enables organizations to protect their communications and secure private information as the world accelerates toward a quantum future, due to the looming threat of quantum computing’s ability to break the public key encryption we currently use. QuProtect’s post-quantum technologies are differentiated in the industry and uniquely provide secure, interoperable cybersecurity to protect networks from today’s classical threats and future quantum threats.”
According to SC Media, “This category recognizes privately-held security startups with great promise – and an applied valuation basis at or above $1 billion. Yes, they are still relying on investment dollars; but they also have developed their core product offering and target market, and proven viability. These businesses may ultimately opt for an initial public offering or they may look toward acquisition as buyer or seller. Regardless, these companies have all eyes on market validation and achieving accelerated scale.”
Hundreds of entrants vying for Excellence Awards were judged by a panel of industry leaders, from sectors including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, consulting, and education.

The end-to-end approach is designed to protect the entire information lifecycle as data is communicated, used and stored.
“Both the strategies and technologies embodied by our entrants captured the exceptional innovation of the cybersecurity sector this year,” said Tom Spring, SC Media’s editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance. “Entrants represented our industry’s top-tier products, individuals, and firms. This year’s list of finalists reflects both the robustness and agility of solutions used by network defenders to protect assets within an always shifting threat landscape.”
