What does Cymbel Mean?
The Oxford Dictionary of Music defines a “cymbel” as a control on a classical pipe organ that when engaged generates a sound resembling a “brilliant mixture of things.”
Cymbel was founded with the same goal, to bring our clients together with best-in-class solutions for information security and compliance, producing a harmonious and brilliant combination.
