About us


We are a start-up from Lisbon, Portugal, founded by researchers from a very proficuous R&D group - LASIGE - within the University of Lisbon.

For the past years, we have been working in several technologies related to data security because we believe everyone is entitled to control and decide the destiny of their own data, and companies should be more responsible in handling such valuable, and personal, assets.

You can reach us by e-mail, or you can visit us in your next trip to Lisbon, at the Faculty of Science Campus.

In May 2019, we were invested by Armilar Venture Partners TechTransfer Fund.
