Cybersecurity Tech Accord led by Microsoft welcomes Hmatix
The Cybersecurity Tech Accord welcomes Hmatix along with 15 new companies to its ranks, bringing the total number of signatories to 106 companies committed to improving the security of cyberspace. This expansion further deepens the group’s expertise by bringing together the companies who stand by the goal.
Dev Gandhi, CEO of Hmatix says,
Hmatix believes in autonomously protecting every device in the world from cyber threats and stands hand in hand with the Cybersecurity Tech Accord. The Accord helps further our goal by establishing a strong framework to strengthen our common cyber defenses.
Protecting our online environment is in everyone’s interest. Therefore Hmatix promises to defend threats and secure our society. Moreover, we commit to build and produce technologies to protect and empower our users, and thereby to improve the security, stability, and resilience of cyberspace.
By joining the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, we strongly agree to commit in four areas:
Stronger defense against cyberattacks by pledging to protect all customers globally regardless of the motivation for attacks online;
No offense by choosing to not help governments or other actors launch cyberattacks against innocent civilians or enterprises, and protecting against the tampering or exploitation of products and services through every stage of technology development, design and distribution;
Empowering developers and the people and businesses that use their technology, by helping them build and improve capacity for protecting themselves; and
Building upon existing relationships and taking collective action together to establish new formal and informal partnerships with industry, civil society, and security researchers. The goal is to improve technical collaboration, coordinated vulnerability disclosure, and threat sharing, as well as to minimize the potential for malicious code to be introduced into cyberspace.
