We are delighted today to announce a partnership with Kx, a division of First Derivatives plc, to power our communications technology platform. Kx is a suite of enterprise-level products centered around kdb+, the world’s fastest time series database which has the ability to store and process data at unparalleled speeds using a very small footprint. By using Kx for our quantum encryption products, we are able to provide faster development, rapidly evolve platforms and enhance platform cross-compatibility.
