The promise of security in current systems is countered daily by news about security break-ins at all system layers, from chips to application software, and embedded systems. Founded in 2002, we invent cutting-edge system assurance solutions for the 21st century with novel software and hardware designs focusing on security technologies that can be game changing.
Our approaches span from vulnerability analysis/avoidance to exploit detection and software self-healing in the field, as well as to post cyber-attack forensic analysis. Products include tools and systems to be deployed. We are continuously involved in cutting-edge R&D with several key R&D funding agencies. Our customers are in 15 countries. Many of our technologies are patented.
