Our Core Values

Never lose sight of the mission.

We believe we exist to help protect the world by securing the data and information that underpins national security and powers the economy. The stakes are big, and we make every decision and measure every outcome based on how well it serves our mission.

Play for each other.

Above all, we're a team. That means we’re grounded by humility, show up for each other, act with empathy, and bring our authentic selves to the table every day. We're here not for our own personal gain, but for clients and team members.

Enjoy the journey.

We believe in making sure our team feels appreciated and valued. We get a lot done and have plenty of fun along the way.

Do the right thing.

We believe what you do when nobody is looking says a lot. We’re honest, transparent, and committed to doing what’s best for our customers, company and team. We act with integrity, openly collaborate in pursuit of the truth, and have no tolerance for negativity.

Get it done.

We're hungry, we're passionate, and we love tough problems and new challenges. Clients trust us to build things that work, and we take that seriously. Our team is feisty, hardworking, and determined to overcome obstacles, find solutions and deliver exceptional results. When faced with a hurdle, we jump.

Our History

Attila Security's roots are grounded in the U.S. National Security Agency, where CTO and Co-Founder Vesh Bhatt developed the technology that underpins the GoSilent platform. 

2010: Vesh Bhatt joins NSA

In his senior year of high school, Attila CTO and Co-Founder Vesh Bhatt began work at the National Security Agency as a Technical Assistant. He was 16 at the time and got his drivers license the same week he began work.

2015: GoSilent Cube predecessor

During his time at NSA, Vesh and a team he assembled created the predecessor for Attila's GoSilent Cube as part of the Agency's information assurance innovation shark tank competition, and were subsequently selected as winners. 

2018: Attila Security launches, moves into DataTribe

Vesh partners with veteran CEO Gregg Smith to commercialize the GoSilent technology and form Attila Security. That year, the company closed on a $2.5 million seed round led by Maryland-based startup studio DataTribe, and supported by Bull City Venture Partners and TEDCO.

Attila in Action

Today, the GoSilent Cube forms the basis of Attila Security's GoSilent Platform, which offers military-grade protection for data in motion. Our products are in use throughout the U.S. Government, including the Department of Defense and intelligence community, as well as in the private sector where they are sought after for their combination of security and usability.
