Etymology of the Company's Name

The company name is derived from the Greek character string “Ζετετιχ” that translates character by character to the string “Zetetic”. A zetetic is a skeptic who subscribes to the branch of rational or scientific skepticism that emphasizes searching for truth by applying the scientific method to empirical evidence. Followers of zetetic skepticism include Sagan, Kurtz, Popkin, Hume, Kant and Descartes [1-4].

Zetetix Company Description

Zetetix supplies academic, commercial and government clients with R&D services to solve challenging information system problems. These services all execute systematic inquiry into the nature of the information systems. We rigorously exercise scientific discipline in this inquiry to ensure the accuracy, reproducibility, objectivity and, ultimately, defensibility of the findings that we report. As zetetics, we understand that all knowledge suffers from uncertainty so we methodically apply modern statistical techniques to characterize the uncertainty in the products we deliver. We have repeatedly demonstrated our ability to solve difficult problems and thus reliably advance our customers’ understanding of the behavior of their information systems. We routinely employ our detailed working knowledge of the system, software, simulation and security standards from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers, International Standards Organization/ International Electrotechnical Commission, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the US DoD to ensure that our methods and their products represent industry best practices and knowledge.
