ETH Zurich spin-off Anapaya Systems AG commercializes a network technology, which offers highly secure and optimized Internet communication. With the new funds, Anapaya is now ready for scaling the business.

Anapaya’s SCION secure Internet architecture is a disruptive network technology that provides state-of-the-art secure interdomain routing, DDoS defense, secure PKI, and an unprecedented level of availability. The technology offers approximate leased-line properties at nearly the cost of a regular Internet connection.

The SCION architecture was developed at ETH Zurich with support of industry partners such as Swisscom and SWITCH. Over the past 8 years, an estimated 100 person-years have flown into the design and implementation of the SCION architecture.

Several existing customers
The strong interest from corporations in SCION has led to the demand for a commercial solution. Therefore, ETH Professors Adrian Perrig, David Basin and Peter Müller and MSc ETH Samuel Hitz founded Anapaya Systems in mid-2017. One year later Anapaya already serves several institutional customers.

Investors in the fast-growing networking solutions firm include the founders, employees and private investors. “With the funding we will broaden our client base and prepare our firm for scalable growth. Additionally, we will strengthen our management team with skills in sales, marketing and management.”, says Samuel Hitz, Chief Executive Officer of Anapaya Systems.

“SCION is uniquely positioned as it solves the root causes of the Internet’s security problems – in contrast to other solutions focused on solving symptoms. Many corporations have shown a strong interest in our solutions and we look forward to serve them through Anapaya Systems.”, states Prof. Dr. Adrian Perrig, ETH Professor and Chairman of Anapaya Systems.
