6 years ago, we foresaw the rise of state-level sophisticated attacks that would render the current cyber security approach ineffective.

We founded KAZUAR based on our unrivalled track-record in large scale cyber-intelligence and business operations.


We developed a ONE-OF-A-KIND solution that provides organizations with unprecedented, intelligence agency grade security.

We partnered with paying design partners, global market-leaders representing increasing demand for our unique solution.

We have created a moat with unique technology and no competition in sight.


Our prediction has been fully realized. The number of businesses being exploited by sophisticated attacks today reinforces the demand for our solution.


Our mission is to become the gold standard of cyber-security for businesses, by helping organisations work securely and conveniently from anywhere, knowing that their most valuable information is safe.
