About Symmetry Systems

Symmetry Systems is a new kind of cybersecurity company. While traditional cybersecurity solutions are focused on securing the perimeter and endpoint technologies, we help organizations manage their security posture, from the data-out. After all, all cybersecurity is data security.

For the
Love of Data


We can’t help it. We love data. That means we take privacy and security more seriously than anyone. Privacy is a fundamental right that too often is trampled over by poor security. It enables individuals to have agency over their future.

Data should be treated with the respect it deserves. And giving that requires data security to be built not only into the infrastructure on which data is stored, but also into every activity that touches that data.

The Symmetry Systems Story

Symmetry Systems believes that in order to secure organization, their customers and their partners, a data first security approach needs to be pursued and adopted. Based on extensive and award winning research at the University of Texas at Austin, Symmetry Systems developed and brought to market DataGuard—defining the Data Security Posture Management space before it even had a name.

Driven to Lead

Founded and led by forward-thinking data security innovators and experts, Symmetry Systems is devoted to changing how organizations think about and manage their data operations.
