About us

Formed in 2001, our cyber security products have been used by all major UK Government departments, overseas governments, and thousands of private sector companies.

We work with trusted authorities, including the UK National Cyber Security Centre, helping to address emerging requirements for organisations that require High Assurance products and services to protect their customer, employee and intellectual property data. Today's cyber security threats faced by government and the critical national infrastructure, become tomorrow's challenges for small businesses. We ensure our products are simple to use and deploy, and available for all, from large blue chip to small business.

We have a passionate London-based software team that enjoy seeing the difference they make, enabling the secure use of technology to derive business value.


As one of the pioneers of disk encryption software, we remain focused on endpoint security – where the majority of cyber breaches begin. With the growth of Cloud, we worked with UK Government to develop a security-focused operating system for Cloud and online services. Our commercially available MDM platform grew out of the NCSC Advanced Mobility programme, leveraging unique capability to meet emerging mobile threats.


Our products and services are often born within the government sector, and ultimately deployed across businesses large and small. We focus on ‘High Assurance’ solutions, meaning security claims are explicit and where possible independently validated through product certification. But ultimately our products need to be easy to use, easy to deploy and demonstrate that they enable business value.


Whilst maintaining a range of market-leading cyber security products, we also undertake funded research engagements and customer software development aligned with our expertise, offer consultancy and specialist managed services.
