Sandbox AQ, an enterprise SaaS company delivering the compound effects of AI and quantum tech (AQ), and Ernst & Young LLP (EY US), one of the world’s largest professional services firms, today announce plans to enter into a strategic alliance, bringing quantum AI solutions to EY clients.
As a Strategic Alliance Partner, EY will work together with Sandbox AQ to bring clients the systems integration and implementation experience of EY teams along with practical AI and quantum technology solutions from Sandbox AQ. The alliance aims to help organizations of varying scale address their most computationally intensive challenges and concerns, create competitive advantages to positively impact and further secure their business.
Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Chairman and CEO, said: “Advances in quantum computing and AI technologies are happening with remarkable speed and have the potential to address the most complex business challenges across all industries.”
Di Sibio added: “EY operates at this intersection of business and technology, and I am looking forward to welcoming the Sandbox AQ team to the EY ecosystem of alliance partners. Together we can bring global clients the vision and expertise necessary to leverage advanced computation to drive and protect business value, especially as enterprise-scale applications evolve.”
Sandbox AQ has begun to transition large enterprises from current, vulnerable protocols to quantum-resistant platforms to ensure forward security. Sandbox AQ also delivers simulation software to accelerate drug discovery, material science development and other high-performance computing tasks.
“Today’s largest multinationals are looking for innovation breakthroughs while simultaneously combatting security threats,” said Jack D. Hidary, CEO of Sandbox AQ. “Our strategic alliance with EY will bring advanced technology, deep quantum expertise and value-added solutions to its global customer base, helping solve computationally-intensive problems while mitigating critical threats.”
Dave Burg, EY Americas Cybersecurity Leader, said: “One of the significant business implications of quantum computing is the challenge that today’s encryption technologies face. Businesses and consumers use encryption to protect information and business processes in many ways – all of which will need to be upgraded to be effective. This is an important and urgent business issue that must be addressed to make a better and more secure working world in a time of unprecedented cyber risk. This alliance with Sandbox AQ will offer the opportunity to combine quantum’s leading-edge experience of science and technology with the vast consulting and business transformation experience offered by EY teams.”
