Achilleion is now Agency!
Dear Members, Friends, Partners, and Supporters,
We are excited to share some important news! We are happy to announce that we are changing our company name to Agency. This name change will allow us to better represent our company and what we stand for.
Why We Chose Agency
One of our core beliefs is that digital security and privacy are not products. While most cybersecurity companies sell software-based countermeasures, Agency is vigilantly doing the real process for our members. That means more than software and insurance; it means monitoring and response by security professionals. Something that truly can’t be fully automated. It’s what makes us better than any other solution in the world because it’s about who we are. The name Agency is meant to emphasize this service aspect of what we do above all else.
Our mission has always been to protect individuals and give them the same level of security organizations have. Two of the first taglines we thought up when we started the company were “Own Your Security” and “Take Control of Your Digital Security & Privacy.” During our early customer discovery, we asked people, “Who’s responsible for protecting your (device, social media accounts, email address, financial accounts, etc.)?”, and the answers surprised us. For many, it was the first time they were confronted with the idea that they were relying solely on people with other interests to do something so fundamentally important in their lives. The second meaning of Agency, exemplified in our new domain GetAgency.com, is the personal ownership and control over one’s digital security and privacy. Agency: The capacity of individuals to act independently and to make their own free choices.
Everything else you’ve come to expect from us will stay the same. There won’t be any changes to the apps or security features on any of your devices or disruptions to our service.
We’re also happy to share we’ve recently concluded our first round of outside funding and have been accepted to participate in the Winter 2022 batch of Y Combinator.
For the time being, you’ll be able to access your accounts at both Achilleion.com and at GetAgency.com.
We have more exciting updates we’ll be sharing over the coming months about additional features and improvements to the user interface of our websites and apps. We’ll be in touch again about those soon.
Thank you for all your support and the opportunity to protect you! Happy Holidays!
