Syhunt introduces new logo, plans to increase the representation of women in its workforce - In 2015, Syhunt introduced the first version of its logo with a red archer. The logo became the first to communicate the company's focus on cutting-edge bug hunting and penetration testing technology. Now 8 years later, Syhunt is proud to unveil the new version of its logo, featuring a female archer.
Since 2022, Syhunt has been featuring an art of two hunters, a male and female archer in its branding. It wasn't just a cosmetic change, it reflected the company's commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion within the tech industry, particularly in the field of cybersecurity.
Current statistics show that women hold approximately 25% of cybersecurity jobs globally, a number that fortunately has been increasing year by year. In addition, according to researchers dedicated to diversity in the creative industries, almost 90% of the design directors are male, which would be one of the reasons why brand identities mostly consist of male characters .
"In the tech industry, women are underrepresented not only in terms of workforce composition but in terms of branding. This is something that we must all recognize and be committed to change.", said Syhunt's founder and CVO Felipe Daragon.
We hope that the new logo will mark a new era of progress and innovation at Syhunt, as we continue to push boundaries and drive change in the cybersecurity industry.
