Our Mission

ThreatX is challenging the current standards of web application protection that have left many organizations exposed and at risk. ThreatX’s behavior-based web application and API protection platform secures web applications and APIs from cyber threats across cloud and on-prem environments. We deliver complete protection and deep threat visibility by combining behavior profiling, collective threat intelligence, and advanced analytics. Our Managed Service combines threat hunting with access to experts 24×7, significantly reducing the direct operational costs and maintenance burdens of WAFs for enterprises.

What We’re Building

We experienced, first-hand, the lack of coverage for hybrid cloud environments, the poor accuracy and limited intelligence that [traditional WAF solutions] use to identify advanced cyber threats and their inability to support deep analysis of trends and web application vulnerabilities. So, we built a better solution for web application protection.”
