About us

Background:

The know-how leading to the development of Cynorix products and solutions stem from many years of academic research in the areas of Information Theory and Software Systems. Backed with liberal IP policy of the University of Waterloo, plus generous support from Canadian government and some personal investment, we have managed to bring these theoretical findings to practical use.

Mission:

Information bits are the heartbeats of our modern society. Information is used by all, and misused by some. Information theory is the mathematical know-how guiding how informative contents can be processed and communicated. This fundamental framework, in spite of all its power, has remained somewhat obscure in industries dealing with information technology. We believe information theoretical guidelines are underutilized in industry, and can potentially have a much deeper root in designing practical systems. Our mission is to bridge the existing gap between mystical and complex concepts of information theory, and practice of information processing, storage and transmission. Our mission is to build products and solutions that eases access to information, while providing strong shields against those that endanger the rights and security of others in this respect. We believe progress in handling information can improve society’s well-being, and our mission is to play a big role in realizing this enormous potential.

Vision:

Low cost and secure access to information can change humans for better. At the same time, information is arguably the most powerful weapon in our modern society. Ease of access to information and information exchange over the internet, accompanied with wide-spread availability of powerful computers, has provided a fertile ground for potential abuse.

Our vision is that, if the current alarming trends in misuse of information are not dealt with, information may do more harm than good. Our vision is to become an industry leader in facilitating low cost access, reliable and secure access to information, and we believe Information Theoretical tools provide the framework to guide industrial developments in this arena.

Noting the urgent need for better security mechanisms, our vision is to start our commercialization activities by focusing on products related to security. We have a number of other products in the pipeline, which are protected by numerous patents, and for which we have developed functional prototypes. Our vision is to introduce these other products to the market over the next few years, with the goal of turning Cynorix into a multifaceted company in the area of Information Technology
