Our mission

We believe that embedded system and IoT security needs to be based on a firm foundation. That means the hardware and firmware of devices need to be designed and developed with security built in and not added as an afterthought.

We work with manufacturers to help them understand their risks and vulnerabilities and help them to create safe, secure, modern products that do not put their customers' information or safety at risk.


Our industrial and community involvement:
