About Symmetry

Symmetry is the Data+AI Security company. Our platform is engineered specifically to address modern data security and privacy challenges at scale from the data out, providing organizations the ability to innovate with confidence.  

Our Vision: Unprecedented Data Transparency

We believe that Respect for Data is the cornerstone of progress. In an increasingly AI-powered digital world, Data should be treated with the respect it deserves, and that starts with privacy and security. Not just security of the infrastructure on which that is stored, but into every permission and operation performed on that data. Only with this fine grained visibility and control, can organizations innovate with confidence and avoid trampling over individual’s privacy and data rights.

Our Mission: Safeguarding the World’s Data

To protect the World’s data at Scale by empowering our Customers with the complete Data+AI Security toolkit that provides total visibility into what data you have, and control of where it lives, who can access it, and how it’s being used.
