About Us

Our philosophy, our approach to cyber and our values

Why 2tela?

2tela is derived from the Latin word tutela meaning “Being or serving as a guardian or protector”.

Tutela was a goddess in the world of ancient Rome; she was considered the personification of protection or guardianship. Tutela was a particularly important goddess for protecting cities; the people and the trade that happened in them.

We have chosen this name as we seek a similar (but less divine of course!) purpose; to provide constant protection, focused on enabling businesses within our great cities to flourish, unhindered by the malicious attentions of cyber attackers.
