Secret double octopus


Users will make mistakes. We accept that.
End-users are vulnerabilities, which no amount of best-practice policies or educational material will change.
The algorithms and processes that underpin everyday security are unchanged from four decades ago. When considered against the backdrop of tech’s rapid evolution, that’s a problem.
A dramatic reimagining of security is required. Password-based security is a poor fit for fast-growing architectures, such as cloud, mobile, and IoT.  There’s too much to remember – too much complication and exposure.
We’re here to make the world safer. We envisage a world where strong security is a business asset – pitched alongside a great product, delivery, and customer service. Because that’s how much security matters.
