THE NAME MINTAKA
Where the name "Mintaka"
derived from Al Mintakah, 'the Belt', and is the first
star in the Belt of Orion seen rising above the horizon.
Ancient astrologers considered it as portending good fortune.
Within the last several years
the Belt of Orion was found to be in precise alignment
with the pyramids at Giza in Egypt. The story goes that
the last Pharaoh of Egypt, who was considered the most
powerful when compared with his predecessors, could have
built the greatest of all the pyramids. However, he understood
his place in the grand scheme of things and built himself
the smallest of the three pyramids, Menkaura, which is
aligned with Mintaka, the star.
We at Mintaka understand our place
within the IT industry universe. Although we recognize
that Mintaka is not the answer to all of the industry's
problems, we strongly believe that we have a crucial part
to play in the emerging discipline of software security
required for organizations to prosper in today's increasingly
complex and insecure world
