Sandbox AQ, an enterprise SaaS company delivering the compound effects of AI and quantum tech (AQ), has partnered with Ernst & Young LLP and Deloitte, two of the world’s largest professional services firms. The alliances will bring Sandbox’s quantum AI solutions to EY and Deloitte clients.
Sandbox AQ will allow these firms to add practical AI and quantum technology solutions from Sandbox AQ to the firms’ systems integration and implementation experience. 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.
“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,” said Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Chairman and CEO. 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.
“The threats businesses face in this unprecedented environment are more urgent and complex than they have ever been. Businesses that have the right technology in place to get ahead of those threats are going to have stronger staying power,” said Deloitte Global CEO Punit Renjen. “By bringing together Sandbox AQ’s advanced technology solutions with Deloitte’s leading global security services, we are putting that power into the hands of forward-thinking organizations.”
“Today’s largest multinationals are looking for innovation breakthroughs while simultaneously combating security threats,” said Jack D. Hidary, CEO of Sandbox AQ. “Our strategic alliance […] 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.”
