Securing the supply chain in a geopolitically charged world is very challenging, and we have various solutions and products to address common threats to the most severe.

Protecting the Digital Supply Chain

A fun read from 2018 about Purism protecting the digital supply chain, it is something you first learn about as a child. You discover a shiny object on the ground and as you reach down to pick it up your parent says “Don’t touch that! You don’t know where it’s been!” But why does it matter whether you know where it’s been? When your parents know where something came from, they can trust that it’s clean and safe for you to play with. When they don’t, their imagination runs wild with all of the disgusting bacteria and viruses that might taint it.
