Make Your Network Invisible.

Our world has changed dramatically over the last 10-15 years with an explosion of mobile devices, IoT, cloud computing, and the shift to work-from-home. There doesn’t seem to be an end to the rapid transformation and complexity. If anything, it’s predicted that the pace of change will accelerate. At the root of this change and complexity, organizations still need secure and reliable networks - both public and private. At the same time, the network perimeter has disappeared. Yet, our security is still designed for the way organizations operated 20 years ago.  

Edge computing is the new standard. It calls for a new way of securing “the network”. We saw the opportunity to make network security simpler and, at the same time, fundamentally more secure. Byos simply makes all devices, and the network itself, invisible. 

Byos Secure Edge™ lets you communicate “on the network” without being connected “to the network” by isolating each device on its own network of one. If a device is compromised in some other way, like malware from an email, Byos limits the spread.

Byos is backed by leading Silicon Valley investors and advisors, and is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. We serve customers in critical infrastructure industries from Defense and Government, Healthcare and Medical Devices, Manufacturing, and Energy, to Financial Services.

Our Journey

CEO and Founder Matias Katz was presenting his security research at the Hack-in-Paris conference when he had the “lightbulb moment” inspiring Byos - even while using a VPN and Antivirus software, he was uncomfortable with the risk, knowing his device was still exposed. He asked himself: “what if you could trust every remote network connection, while isolating your devices from dirty networks and other compromised devices?

The photos below show the progression of our technology, from initial napkin ideation to Proof-of-Concept on a Raspberry Pi, followed by a proprietary hardware dongle, and the final product from factor. With many years of research and development, the Byos Secure Endpoint Edge is fully proprietary and patent protected.
