01 Communique is a Canadian cyber security and technology company based in Mississauga, Ontario. 01 Communique is focused on cybersecurity with IronCAP,[1] a cryptographic system designed to protect users and enterprises by securing conventional computer systems and protecting against future quantum computing attacks.

IronCAP operates using time tested code-based cryptography, however product improvements allow faster and more secureChromosome number: {{{1}}} encryption, decryption and key generation. By introducing sophisticated linear codes and error syndromes into encryption keys, the company claims that their technology confuses even quantum computers and prevents any information from being compromised. 

According to 01, examples of vertical applications are email/file encryption, digital signatures, blockchain security, remote access/VPN, credit card security, cloud storage, artificial intelligence, IoT (5G), and website security.

Prior to this, the company developed integrated communications software and services. 01 Communique specializes in providing remote access to information stored on a Desktop PC over the Internet.[2] Generally this is referred to as PC remote access software or PC remote control software. The Company's legacy business provides customers with a suite of secure remote access services and products. Prior to this, 01 Communique was active in the Remote Access Software market. Their legacy product line provided users with the ability to establish Remote Desktop Connections via the Internet.
