About CyberSight

Reinventing the World of Cybersecurity

CyberSight is taking a fresh new approach to endpoint security. We have created a comprehensive security intelligence platform to predict, detect and stop cyberattacks before they happen.

Our first product, RansomStopper™, is bringing new capabilities to defeat malicious software known as ransomware – one of the most damaging types of malware. Our anti-ransomware software uses machine learning to provide multi-layered defense against ransomware. Our proprietary deception techniques combined with our recovery and rollback technology protects from malicious encryption and file loss.

Our Vision: The Future of Cybersecurity

Our vision when developing RansomStopper was to address the changing nature of ransomware by stopping cyberattacks that evade traditional antivirus software. Even the most expensive antivirus solutions often fail to detect new ransomware because they rely on signature and pattern updates. Many other companies are offer expensive, bloated endpoint security products but CyberSight is the first company to deliver lightweight, purpose built anti-ransomware solutions for both home and business users. RansomStopper is a “must have” complement to antivirus software.

The ultimate goal for CyberSight is to predict a security attack and stop it before it materializes. Innovation, efficiency and low-cost is at the heart of our culture and is what drives us to explore and evolve our software each and every day. We want to create a long-term data company around security – one the looks at collective attack intelligence, shares it with the cybersecurity community, and uses this knowledge to win the fight against cybercriminals.

We want to build a company that makes a difference and helps both companies and individuals stay better protected.
