About ARMA

Why we’re here

In 2017, when we looked at available secure communications technology, we saw products technologically incapable to deal with advanced adversaries, and products challenged by the involvement of Nation State Actors. We saw a need for a different kind of technology, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded ARMA Instruments. ARMA is an acronym to Advanced Relay Mission Applications.

Challenges we solve

You cannot prevent espionage on just the software level using encryption or even quantum resilient encryption. An attacker may tap into system vulnerabilities hidden in files or applications, hidden in operating system components, or perhaps in the many hardware components. The more convenience a system offers, the more complex it gets, giving room for many different angles of attack. This way, the encryption is already compromised before it has even come to effect. All system layers in a communications solution need to be secured, from the applications and software to the operating system and hardware platform.

Our mission

To provide absolute communications and data- security, based on zero-trust principles, while being transparent in organization and technology. We stay politically neutral.
