Explore the unique benefits of being protected by PRIVUS


A system is only as strong as its weakest link. Hypersecurity™ ensures that weak links are eliminated when it comes to security and privacy.  Pioneered by PRIVUS, Hypersecurity™ protects communication data by deploying multiple layers of advanced technical defenses that come together to form the Hypersecure™ Framework, all powered by ongoing research and backed by independent verification.

Advanced Evasion Technology™ (AET)

To ensure that communications channels remain available and secure in hostile environments PRIVUS developed Advanced Evasion Technology™.  AET uses a range of defensive technologies including encrypted tunneling allowing access to Hypersecure™ communications from anywhere. 

Zero Trust Architecture

For unmatched communication security PRIVUS solutions are built on a decentralized architecture that does now allow us access to your decryption keys or communications data. This ensures that even in the event of a server or back-end breach your message data cannot be compromised.

Perpetual Threat Prevention™ (PTP)

To protect against the threats of tomorrow, Perpetual Threat Prevention™ is the ongoing PRIVUS research and product development program.  In a world where the frequency and complexity of attacks are increasing PRIVUS solutions are, and will always be, developed and updated to protect against the next generation of attacks.
