About us

Sikur was born in 2014 to revolutionize the global cyber-security market by introducing a new concept of secure communication: military-level protection for data transmission, credentials, information, and transactions.

It develops cyber-security solutions to shield corporate communication from end to end, without sacrificing usability.

Sikur’s work covers critical aspects of private and public organizations: data breaches, financial losses, operational inefficiency, auditing, IoT device intrusion, regulatory market and reputation. Therefore, more than a technological solution, it is a strategic decision for organizations.

Therefore, Sikur’s main mission is to help organizations develop a preventive rather than a reactive mindset. After all, fighting the root of the problem is more effective than dealing with the consequences in isolation.

It operates globally through offices and distributors in Europe, Latin America, and the United States. It is headquartered in the second largest technology center in the world – Sophia Antipolis (France), where it also operates one of its research and development cells focused on IoT (Internet of Things).

It is a member of the Digital Security sector in the SCS (Secure Communicating Solutions) Cluster of Sophia Antipolis and the founder of Call UX for SMART LIFE: Home & Mobility, in partnership with IMREDD, at Université Côte d’Azur.

In 2020, it was selected to participate in Euronext’s Techshare Program, which helps technology entrepreneurs become familiar with the capital markets. Since then, it has had the opportunity to expand its operations side by side with large companies and leaders in the technology sector.
