Who Are We?

We are certified Cyber Security professionals with a life-long passion for security and privacy. Our experience in the security field is focused in Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing, Network Security, Computer Network Defense, and Information Privacy Protection.

We started this project because we believe every person has the right to secure and private computing. You should not have to worry about viruses, spyware, hackers, and government surveillance every time you use a computer or access the web. Our mission is to enable people to practice their right to secure and private computing by providing cost effective and easy-to-use tools. 

As featured on: 

 So, What is AnonyStik?

In a nutshell, AnonyStik is a USB stick device that has its own operating system and secure storage volume. You simply plug the device into your computer (PC or Mac) and start it. All of your online activities will be contained within the device, so nothing will affect the computer or laptop hard drive (a computer within a computer basically). 

This is a guaranteed way to protect you against viruses/malware and provide you with online privacy, since nothing is saved or logged by your computer. 

It also has tools that enable you to be online anonymously (masking your IP address) so that no one can monitor your internet traffic and know who you are. 

Most importantly, AnonyStik comes with software and tools that enable you to encrypt and save files that you wish to keep with just a few clicks.

 What Are The Advantages That AnonyStik Offers?

How Does It Work?

 AnonyStik is very easy and simple to use:

If you have a PC that runs Windows or Linux, simply plug in AnonyStik PC edition to the USB port. Press the power button and immediately start tapping the applicable function key to access the boot menu (in most cases that will be F9 or F12). From the boot menu, simply choose the USB drive option and AnonyStik will start within seconds.

If you have a Mac, simply plug in AnonyStik Mac edition. Press the power button and immediately press and hold the Option key to access Startup Manager. Choose the USB media device option called EFI and AnonyStik will start within seconds.

Any Prototypes Yet?

Of course! In fact, not only did we develop prototypes, but we also conducted market testing, where select a few got to try our beta product and provided feedback. We used the feedback we received to make AnonyStik better than ever.

Here are the functional prototypes we have:

Why Launch a Kickstarter?

We have taken this project as far as we can using the startup funds that we have. Now we are asking for your support and help to fund this project and help us finish it. 

Your funding will allow us do the following:

  •  Conduct final testing on the device to make sure we solve any bugs or issues. 
  • We intend on producing AnonyStik in house to ensure the integrity and quality of the product, so we need to purchase tools and equipment that are required for production and building an inventory. 
  • Plan for future features and enhancements.
  • We need your help to promote the product and raise awareness so that together we can help people protect their online security and privacy.

AnonyStik is almost finished. Through your support, we have no doubt that this project will be completed on time. We intend to ship early bird rewards by June 2015.

Thanks in advance for all your support!

Cheers!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face with AnonyStik is making the device compatible with every PC and Mac in the world, but that's difficult to guarantee. We have conducted a lot of testing on many different computers with different Operating Systems. We have discovered a couple of issues specific to certain computer models and we worked hard until they were no longer an issue. We also intend on doing more testing as we reach our funding goal and we will fix any compatibility issues we discover.

The goal is for AnonyStik to work on computers capable of booting an operating system from a USB device. Some older computers that were manufactured before 2007 are incapable of booting an operating system from a USB device. Also, some older Mac computers that do not have an Intel chips can't boot an operating system from a USB device. AnonyStik will not be able to fully function on these computers and there is unfortunately nothing that we can do.

Cyber security, privacy, and anonymity are ever-changing. Although we can't always anticipate these threats before they are known, we do everything in our power to stay abreast of vulnerabilities that threaten the effectiveness of AnonyStik.

Please note that Professionally Secure, LLC absolutely does not condone the use of any of its products for illegal purposes. It is your sole responsibility to use the products within the confines of the law in accordance with local, state, federal, and international laws, policies, and regulations.
