Our Purpose is to “make Mallory go elsewhere”
The roots of Riscure are in cryptography, where security challenges are often explained with fictional characters in a story. One of the stories is about Alice and Bob, who attempt to exchange secrets. In this story, Mallory, a highly skilled adversary who threatens even the most advanced security methods, taps into the exchange and performs cryptographic wiretaps to access information. At Riscure, we try to think what Mallory would do in order to minimize the chance of any intrusion. By offering our customers cutting-edge expertise, we make these intrusions costly and a near-impossible endeavor, which forces Mallory to look for an easier target elsewhere.

Riscure was founded in 2001 by Marc Witteman, who has been working the field of chip security since 1993. Operating from Delft in the Netherlands, Riscure started serving customers from around the world. During the first years, security evaluation services were the main focus, mostly for customers in the financial industry. Later on the evaluation services also evolved towards the pay-tv industry. When in 2005 the first product was sold to a customer, development of security test equipment also became integral to Riscure’s business and we now have hundreds of customers for our industry leading security equipment. In 2011 Riscure opened an office in San Francisco USA in order to get local presence for its customers in North America. We opened our office in Shanghai in 2017 with the same desire to partner with customers in key areas where they operate, facilitating collaboration further.
