When we started Federated Networks we set some very aggressive ‘aspirational’ goals, like literally unbreakable cyber-security. Our belief was then and is now that for the Internet to deliver on the promise of its unbounded potential to enable human interaction, communication and transaction, a much more robust foundational security infrastructure is required ~ in essence, the Internet must become more trustworthy.
So we spent the first six years of our company’s existence systematically seeking to eliminate all known threats to the compromise of User data driven by an unwavering belief that not only is meaningful cyber-security possible, but in fact that cyber-security can be made more secure than its analog counterparts. Suffice it to say that our views might be viewed as ‘unconventional’ as seen through the lense of current thinking on the subject (to put it mildly), but we remain uncompromisingly undaunted in our views, beliefs and aspirations for three important reasons:
- The next final frontier is cyber-space, and like its predecessor, “failure is not an option” here either.
- By aiming unreasonably high and daring greatly, we know that even if we fall a little short, we will likely achieve more than enough to materially change the landscape of cyber-security towards a locus of trustworthiness.
- Deep immersion in the subject coupled with an unrelenting results orientation and importantly the achievement of provable outcomes has led us to no longer just believe, but rather to know that the combinatorial effects our each of our small steps, when aggregated, are becoming a ‘giant leap’.
So yes, we are dreamers, but we are dreamers with strong convictions and the sincere hope that our efforts can play a role in achieving the boundless possibilities and promise that is the Internet.
