We are Futurae

We empower users and companies to deploy state of the art IT security while improving the customer journey.


Our solutions improve state-of-the-art security for our customers and their end-users.


Security is useless when the end user does not like to use it. We provide solutions that are easy to use and thus foster adoption.


Our team is composed of top-of-the-class individuals from top universities and research institutes worldwide.
