Judo was inspired by the principle of applying holds and leverage so one can use the attackers force against them.

Judo’s approach creates a digital-wrapper around the most valuable digital assets of the organization, providing the ability to stave off (hold) attackers. If they do attempt to hack the organization, the only satisfaction they might get is stumbling upon one encrypted piece of the sophisticated puzzle that is your data.
