Why we are called Vesper

Vesper is the Latin name of the bright, evening star, Venus. It is the first star visible in the night sky and the last one to disappear at dawn. According to myth, the ancient Greeks believed for a long time that there were two different stars, and it took the Babylonian astronomers to convince them finally that it was one star. This story illustrates clearly that appearances are often deceptive. Vesper is the bright,star that can guide you to safety when darkness falls. This is also Vesper Group’s mission as an intelligence led security company.
