About oak9

How the oak9 name came to be

An oak tree displays great strength and resilience. The fractal pattern within the tree symbolizes our pre-built security as code blueprints which are the reusable, extensible, and cloud agnostic building blocks that our customers use to deliver secure and resilient cloud-native architectures.

Cloud 9, a state of blissful happiness, symbolizes oak9’s coverage across cloud environments and holistic integration across the SDLC to provide seamless security, making life easier for developers.
