TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / March 25, 2021 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSXV:ONE)(OTCQB:OONEF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that its quantum-safe encryption, IronCAP™, successfully survived a global Bounty Contest challenge. The Bounty Contest was exclusively sponsored by PwC China. 807 cybersecurity and quantum experts attempted to crack IronCAP™'s quantum-safe encryption during the one-month CAD$100,000 Bounty Contest. No contestants managed to break the code and IronCAP™'s encryption has yet again proven its resilience and robustness.

"We believe IronCAP™'s quantum-safe encryption solution is the best-in-class cryptography solution and it is the only quantum-safe encryption product we are aware of to survive a challenge of this scale and intensity," says Andrew Cheung, 01 Communique's CEO. "We would like to thank all the expert contestants who have participated and helped to verify our technology. My special thanks to PwC, China whose contribution and support was key to the success of this event."

Samuel Sinn, Partner, Cybersecurity & Privacy Services, PwC China stated: "We are pleased to see that no one was able to break the IronCAP™ product amid the huge number of participants in our bounty contest this time. It objectively demonstrated that IronCAP™ is a robust product to protect the systems from cyber-attacks. We are also confident that IronCAP™ will also be able to combat the cyber threats when the Q-Day arrives."

Businesses and Governments are now very much aware of and preparing for the upcoming quantum threat that has the potential to eviscerate present classical encryption. We look forward to working with leaders who have the foresight to champion early adoption of IronCAP™. Their effort will no doubt be rewarded by best-in-class protection against the detrimental quantum attack.

About IronCAP and IronCAP X™:

IronCAP™ is at the forefront of the cyber security market and is designed to protect our customers from cyber-attacks. IronCAP™'s patent-pending cryptographic system is designed to protect users and enterprises against the ever-evolving illegitimate and malicious means of gaining access to their data today as well as in the future with the introduction of powerful quantum computers. Based on improved Goppa code-based encryption it is designed to be faster and more secure than current standards. It operates on conventional computer systems, so users are protected today while being secure enough to safeguard against future attacks from the world of quantum computers. An IronCAP™ API is available which allows vendors of a wide variety of vertical applications to easily transform their products to ensure their customers are safe from cyber-attacks today and from quantum computers in the future.

IronCAP X™, a cybersecurity product for email/file encryption, incorporating our patent-pending technology for commercial. The new product has two major differentiations from what is in the market today. Firstly, many offerings in today's market store users secured emails on email-servers for recipients to read, making email-servers a central target of cyber-attack. IronCAP X™, on the other hand, delivers each encrypted message end-to-end to the recipients such that only the intended recipients can decrypt and read the message. Consumers' individual messages are protected, eliminating the hackers' incentive to attack email servers of email providers. Secondly, powered by our patent-pending IronCAP™ technology, we believe IronCAP X™ is the world's first quantum-safe end-to-end email encryption system; secured against cyberattacks from today's systems and from quantum computers in the future. Consumers and businesses using IronCAP X™ will be protected by tomorrow's cybersecurity today.
