OUR PHILOSOPHY

Inside The Guild

Guiding Principles

One

Cyber. Either Win Or Perish.

When dealing with well-funded attacks, sponsored by states and organized crime syndicates, cybersecurity solutions we invest in must be no less than brilliant. At the same time they should be : 

Easy to Explain, Easy to deploy, Easy to use !

TWO

The Power of Silicon.

When everything else fails, hardware enabled security could be the best solution against new threats both in legacy markets and new ones, protecting every layer of the compute stack, from hardware, firmware and operating systems to applications, networks and the cloud

THREE

Conventional Thinking Not Allowed Beyond This Point

If you are one of those alpha geeks or outliers no one listened to, try us!
The direct path to the Guilds’ success is carved in the idea that Simplicity is Disruptive
