ABOUT US

The CYSEC story and our commitment to data protection

We are CYSEC, a European data security company, based in Lausanne and Paris, providing a Confidential Computing software solution which enables companies to secure workloads execution. We ​ help companies to securely deploy their application with highly sensitive data in industries such as financial services, edge applications and NewSpace.

Our Story

CYSEC was born in 2018 when Patrick Trinkler and Yacine Felk, two cybersecurity entrepreneurs, decided to focus on answering the biggest challenge: securing data-in-use.

Moving corporate data to the public cloud and process data in the edge is a major accelerator for business development. The more companies follow this strategic path, the more data in use—the point of least resistance—becomes a target for attack.

Having made a successful exit with the world’s first quantum technology, a University of Geneva spin-off, Patrick and Yacine were well placed to develop a business-first solution that would be effective, straightforward, and cost-effective.

Leveraging 20+ years of cybersecurity and cryptography experience, the founders worked with a team of experts to design and build a trailblazing confidential computing solution, CYSEC ARCA Trusted OS.
