  • Brand

    The origin of the logo.
    We present you the Deepcyber brand!

    The DeepCyber ​​brand was the result of articulated and customized work that could enhance the company's features and core team approach. Our identity is solid, iconic and dynamic. The image is immediately recognizable thanks to its symbolic recalls and the forms that make it.

  • Logo origin


    In ancient times, hexagon has always represented a strong symbolic value (the creation of man-woman, Solomon's seal or the Shield of David).

  • Logo origin


    The 3 triangles that make up our hex, suggest protection but also attack and proactivity and go in three different directions, such as the areas of interest of DeepCyber: Intelligence, Protection, Antifraud.

  • Logo origin

    The triangle

    The triangle at the center of the logo represents an intermediate entity between the substance almost abstract or spiritual (circle) and the material (square) that falls under our senses, as well as the cyber - apparently virtual world - has a repercussion on the real world.
