xyberShield is a privately held company that protects web applications from hackers. When we were creating our product, our development team recognized that traditional firewall technology (both network firewalls and web application firewalls) couldn’t deliver sufficient protection for web applications. Again and again, we read news stories about the theft of massive amounts of confidential data from organizations around the world. And, like others, we saw more and more companies transfer core business applications to the cloud.
So we set out to develop a solution that would provide enterprise-grade protection to global customers, using both known threat signatures and a new, innovative behavioral analysis and correlation engine, and delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, with all the ease and flexibility SaaS implies.
We began our product development in 2006 and three years later, xyberShield launched the most powerful and effective web application security solution to the marketplace. Over the past four years, in billions of user sessions, xyberShield has provided unparalleled protection to organizations around the globe.
xyberShield took a major step forward in its continued growth in 2012, when Peter Watkins joined the company as CEO. An experienced, successful enterprise security executive, Watkins has honed the company’s strategy and begun building a world-class management team.
xyberShield was formerly part of MARSYS, a world leader in service-oriented IT with over 30 years of experience in application and development management for Fortune 1000 customers.
