We’re working to make the world a safer place.

Cycuity gives companies the power to mitigate hardware vulnerabilities before manufacturing, saving time, money—and reputation.

Cycuity was created as Tortuga Logic in 2014 by co-founders with a shared vision: to revolutionize cybersecurity with trusted microelectronics.

Today, we remain committed to the belief that a secure design lifecycle is essential—from the design & verification chain into post-silicon.

Silicon chip vulnerabilities like Spectre and Meltdown have the potential to exploit weaknesses

in chip design and firmware, and cause irreparable damage to companies who build or rely on semiconductor technology.

At Cycuity, we’re working towards a world where the products that enrich, inform, and protect our lives aren’t just secure—they’re backed by the confidence of hardware security assurance.

Our Values

Integrity is Everything

We cultivate trust with colleagues and customers alike.

Eyes on the Horizon

We are forward-thinking champions of insight and innovation.

Collaboration is Key

We work together in the pursuit of shared goals.

Never Lose Focus

We are determined and resilient in the face of challenges.

Aim for Excellence

We never compromise when it comes to the quality of our work.
