Company Summary

Companies who have been targeted by foreign hackers frequently cannot identify which of their millions of files contain their trade secrets and valuable intellectual property. Unfortunately this is a required first step before a company can build a strong defensive security framework. After two years of consulting for multi-national companies post-breach, Taia Global has developed a solution for that problem called Chimera.
