Naming Background
The name Keysight is derived from two English words: key, meaning indispensable or essential, a means of access; and insight, meaning the power of seeing, having vision and perception. The name connotes seeing what others cannot, having the critical or key insight to understand and unlock the changing technology landscape.
“Unlocking measurement insights for 75 years” commemorates the birth of the original Hewlett-Packard Company, from which Agilent’s electronic measurement business originated.
Keysight’s symbol is a stylized waveform – the shape and form of a common electrical signal. The symbol represents the company’s 100 percent focus on electronic measurement once it separates from Agilent Technologies, as well as a tribute to its legacy that dates back to the beginning of the electronic measurement industry as the original Hewlett Packard Company.
Company colors:
The corporate signature’s colors are Keysight Red and Keysight Gray.
