NephōSec, quite literally, means “Cloud Security”.
Derived from the Greek word for cloud, the term “Nepho-” has a wealth of history behind it. Nephthys, for example, is a goddess who was portrayed as a symbol of protection. In ancient Egyptian temple theologies, she was seen as the “Helpful Goddess”. There was another figure in Greek mythology named Nephele. According to legend, Zeus created Nephele from a cloud in order to trick King Ixion.
Due to the connections between clouds and protection, “Nepho” became a perfect fit for part of our company’s name.
Finally, “sec” was added to the end of NephōSec as a shortened version of “security” to emphasize our dedication to keeping your assets and data secure.
