Privacy and security for the quantum cloud

Protect your enterprise’s most critical data

Secure access to remote quantum computers

Agnostiq builds software solutions that enable users to experiment with quantum processors over the cloud, without compromising the privacy of their data or algorithms.

Protect your data in transit and at rest


Agnostiq’s solutions allow users to keep their data and algorithms secure while being processed on the quantum cloud. This allows even the most privacy-sensitive users to unlock the benefits of quantum computers without compromising any of their proprietary data or algorithms.

Quantum Computer

Built for today's quantum hardware

Part of what makes Agnostiq unique is that we build our solutions with today’s quantum hardware in mind, recognizing that qubits are in short supply. That’s why we allow users to keep overheads to a minimum by providing them with the option to dial them up (or down) for increased (or decreased) security. This dial allows users to increase security as the hardware scales.

Cross-platform Security Solutions

Agnostiq’s solutions are designed to fit seamlessly into your quantum computing stack by offering cross-platform solutions across all major cloud services providers. By integrating with existing SDK’s, Agnostiq makes it easy for your organization to experiment with quantum computers safely and securely.


Oktay Goktas

Co-Founder & CEO

Oktay obtained his PhD in Physics from the Max-Planck-Institute Stuttgart in Germany as an International Max Planck Research School for Advanced Material scholar, working on the fabrication and characterization of quantum coherent electronic devices in the group of Klaus von Klitzing. Prior to founding Agnostiq, Oktay was an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Engineering at Munzur University in Turkey, a post-doctoral researcher at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and a visiting scientist at the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto.

Oktay has expertise in all relevant technologies of the quantum computing stack, beginning with cryogenic technologies to the advanced fabrication methods for quantum electronic devices. He is an experienced programmer on currently-available quantum computing platforms, such as IBM, Rigetti, Xanadu, and D-Wave. His latest research, which he conducted with the Agnostiq team, is on benchmarking quantum processors.

Elliot MacGowan

Co-Founder & COO

Elliot obtained his MBA from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto where he focused his studies on finance and strategy. Prior to Rotman, Elliot worked in corporate strategy at Bell Canada, Canada’s largest Telecommunications company, where he developed skills in finance, operations, and sales. Elliot most recently spent his summer of business school recruiting high-quality ventures to the Creative Destruction Lab. He speaks multiple languages from French to SQL to C (and soon PyQuil + Qiskit).

Edwin Tham

Co-Founder & CTO

Edwin is a PhD candidate in the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto. His expertise is in the design and implementation of quantum information processing protocols -- especially in quantum optical systems -- as well as quantum and classical metrology. In a previous life, after completing an MSc in Physics at Purdue University, he spent 3 years as a research analyst and software engineer at a pharmaceutical consultancy, MDM Inc. There, he developed drug modeling and analytics software for GlaxoSmithKline and Eli Lilly.

Edwin’s research has included the design and implementation of the first fully homomorphic encryption protocol for quantum computing. His other works include the benchmarking of noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) chips, as well as quantum metrology. His broader research interest is in answering the question of when, where, and how quantum states and systems outperform classical ones.


Michele Mosca


Michele is a founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, a Professor in the Department of Combinatorics & Optimization of the Faculty of Mathematics, and a founding member of Waterloo's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He was the founding Director of CryptoWorks21, a training program in quantum-safe cryptography. He co-founded the ETSI-IQC workshop series in Quantum-Safe Cryptography which brings together a broad range of stakeholders working toward globally standardized quantum-safe cryptography. He co-founded evolutionQ Inc. in order to support organizations as they evolve their quantum-vulnerable systems and practices to quantum-safe ones and softwareQ Inc. to provide quantum software tools and services.

He obtained his doctorate in Mathematics in 1999 from the University of Oxford on the topic of Quantum Computer Algorithms. His research interests include quantum computation and cryptographic tools that will be safe against quantum technologies. He is globally recognized for his drive to help academia, industry, and government prepare our cyber systems to be safe in an era with quantum computers. Dr. Mosca's work is published widely in top journals, and he co-authored the respected textbook "An Introduction to Quantum Computing" (OUP). Dr. Mosca has won numerous awards and honours, including 2010 Canada's Top 40 Under 40, the Premier's Research Excellence Award (2000-2005), Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) since 2010, Canada Research Chair in Quantum Computation (2002-2012), University Research Chair at the University of Waterloo (2012-present), Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal (2013), SJU Fr. Norm Choate Lifetime Achievement Award (2017), and a Knighthood (Cavaliere) in the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic (2018).

Anne Broadbent


Dr. Anne Broadbent is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Ottawa, Canada, where she holds the University Research Chair in Quantum Information Processing. Her research focuses on quantum complexity and cryptography and she is perhaps best known for her work on 'Blind Quantum Computing'. Dr. Broadbent was awarded the NSERC Doctoral Prize (2009), the John Charles Polanyi Prize in Physics (2010), the Ontario Early Researcher Award (2016) and the André Aisenstadt Mathematics Prize of the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (2016). She is also a CIFAR Global Scholar Alumni and an affiliate member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, the Institute for Quantum Computing, and the Institut Transdisciplinaire d'Informatique Quantique.

Aharon Brodutch


Aharon has over 10 years of experience working on theoretical aspects of quantum theory, quantum information, and quantum computing. He has an M.Sc from Tel Aviv University, Israel and a PhD in Physics from Macquarie University, Australia with a thesis on quantum information. In 2012 he joined Raymond Laflamme’s group at the Institute for quantum computing (University of Waterloo) as a postdoctoral fellow where among other quantum information projects, he worked on experimental implementations of quantum algorithms using noisy (liquid state NMR) quantum processors. In 2016 he was awarded the CQIQC prize postdoctoral fellowship and joined the University of Toronto’s Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Control where he worked on quantum information processing in optics. He has over 20 published papers on topics related to quantum theory, quantum information and quantum computing.
