IBM plans to provide "quantum-safe" cryptography services on the IBM public cloud in 2020. Additionally, IBM cryptographers have prototyped what the company calls the "world's first quantum computing-safe enterprise-class tape." At the current rate of progress in quantum computing, IBM says, it is expected that data protected by the asymmetric encryption methods used today may become insecure within the next 10-30 years. Acknowledging that this is a significant time away, IBM however cautions that data can be harvested today, stored, and decrypted in the future with a powerful enough quantum computer.
