ARGOS was founded in 2020 after our founder David was called in to an organisation to review and uplift yet another cloud environment’s security posture after they had a security incident.
David saw a pattern that was repeating itself at almost every organisation he worked for, and that was a misinterpretation of basic cloud security principles, the Cloud Shared Responsibility Model, and the outcome that existing products delivered (and what outcome they did not deliver). After yet another avoidable breach that was traced back to a cloud misconfiguration David started to develop ARGOS.
From the start ARGOS was driven by the following principles:
- Security first! We do not charge for basic security practices like Single Sign On (SSO) or multi factor authentication (MFA). Everybody should have access to this, so we support that.
- ARGOS needs to seemlessly integrate and not waste people’s time. This is why we set ourselves a goal of an average “implementation time” of less than 20 minutes.
- Build for the customer. We know, because we were on the customer side before. Make it easy to be consumed by small businesses with minimal staff and Enterprises alike
ARGOS has its roots in Greek mythology, a many-eyed giant that is sometimes described as “all-seeing” and “always watching”, exactly what our customers expect us to do as well.
