Security is the enabling layer for innovation. From autonomous driving to digital healthcare, the technologies of the future will not reach their full potential without secure digital foundations.

Cyber threats to this future digital economy evolve fast, and so defenders must too. We believe that these breakthrough security technologies will be created by nimble innovators.

CyLon was founded to give these innovators, startups and entrepreneurs the platform they need to succeed in a uniquely challenging industry.
