Our Story

At Exium, we are transforming the way lean IT teams connect and secure their users, offices and devices.

We’ve integrated networking and security in a cloud-delivered Zero Trust platform powered by open source.

With our Intelligent Cybersecurity Mesh platform, networking and security are no longer tied to a complex, costly stack of outdated hardware that impedes growth and introduces risk. We deliver a holistic and autonomous cloud-native service that protects your organization from the rising tide of threats– empowering you to embrace cloud transformation and Work From Anywhere.

Whether your applications are in the data center, SaaS, or the cloud, or whether your employees are in the office or abroad, you will never have to compromise on security or networking performance. Cost or a skills gap won’t keep you from delivering the performance and protection that your organization needs. Gone are the days of multiple products, multiple consoles, multiple trainings and overlapping training of multiple people. With Exium, security, networking, and the cloud are converged in one autonomous platform, which means you only need half the resources and effort to get up and running and to manage your security and networking.
