Launch Cipher


In a world where every sector can be referred to as tech, patents have become a new currency in corporate strategy. Over 100 million of them. Individual patents may have limited intrinsic value. It’s their interconnectivity that’s important; the way they combine with a business environment that grants incomparable, transformative power. That’s where we come in. Cipher applies this contextual framework, coupled with the latest advances in machine learning, to provide the most innovative approach to patent analytics. Not a specialist patent tool just for lawyers. The first truly accessible source of online business intelligence that analyses technology trends essential for making business decisions which will ultimately define the technology landscape of tomorrow.
