By Jason Reed, Senior Industry Analyst, Cybersecurity

In early 2014, it was revealed that the NSA was working on a quantum computer whose hacking power could render today‚Äôs cryptography obselete. Quantum technology, it was suggested, could break even the most robust encryption currently available with relative ease. Although it had yet to be operationalized, the theoretical possibility of a future attacker using quantum computing to break into sensitive systems was taken seriously. By late 2017, researchers were making regular breakthroughs in quantum computing that made the prospect of quantum-assisted hacking seem less a futuristic postulation and more a near-future reality.
