Our Speakers

James Derbyshire and Henry Harrison - Garrison Technology

Garrison has engineered a unique hardware approach to enabling highly secure internet access using ARM processors. This means that the user browsing experience is exceptional, even when watching video at 1080p. Due to the protocol gap they provide, it is not possible for JavaScriipt / HTML to transverse this break. The approach is so secure that we’re being evaluated by the NCSC for use at the highest level of government classification, which is significant as the technology is engineered specifically for enterprise scale. Due to the high assurance that Garrison provides, they have the potential to transform how large enterprise protect itself from internet borne threat whilst reducing the cost and complexity of traditional defence in depth.
