Matias Katz

Founder & CEO

Byos™ is the endpoint micro-segmentation company dedicated to helping organizations protect themselves from the risk of ubiquitous remote, guest and IoT network connectivity. Byos allows employees, contractors and devices to safely and securely connect to any network, regardless of their location or network environment.

The patent-pending Byos µGateway™ (pronounced “micro-gateway”), implemented as a portable “security stack on a USB stick” or as embedded circuitry directly in a device, automatically creates a micro-segment of 1 delivering hardware enforced protection of the device from the inherent risks on dirty networks while allowing secure zero-trust based access to corporate resources. The Byos Management Console provides centralized policy management and reporting across enterprise wide deployments of µGateways.

Byos is backed by leading Silicon Valley investors and advisors, is headquartered in Halifax, Canada, and sources and manufactures all components in North America.

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 µGateway is fully proprietary and patent protected.
