Existing cyber security technologies fail to provide adequate protection against today’s new breed of ransomware, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and malware.

Led by hard core researchers, engineers and a seasoned management team, SlashNext is uniquely positioned to protect against the toughest network security challenges.

SlashNext detection efficacy comes from our deep understanding of network protocols, their vulnerabilities, cutting-edge cyber threats and the hackers who create them. Our solutions not only detect attackers attempting a breach, they actively seek out malicious servers to gain an ever deeper understanding of the attacker’s security posture and identify their next move before they make it.
