Who We Are

Verayo develops solutions based on its proprietary PUF technology to revolutionize digital authentication of products, people and machine. We provide complete authentication solutions. Our solutions include: unclonable chips, authentication software, consumer engagement, back-end data analysis enabling platforms and key generation.

Since its founding in 2005, our team has designed, built, and tested silicon chips based on its PUF technology and built-up a growing body of additional Intellectual Property (IP) and substantive know-how beyond the core technology that Verayo licensed from MIT. Verayo is funded by Khosla Ventures and has assembled an experienced advisory board drawn from the semiconductor, mobile and security industries. In the past year, the company has also deepened its relationships with US Department of Defense agencies and has received multiple contracts.
