Why We Exist

CyGlass is a leading provider of cloud and network-centric threat detection and response solutions that help organizations see risks, stop threats, and prove compliance. Our unique 100% cloud-native, eXtended Cloud Security platform delivers enterprise-class cyber defense across hybrid networks, to mid-sized and small organizations at an affordable cost and without hardware or software. In September 2023, WatchGuard Technologies, a global leader in unified cybersecurity, acquired CyGlass to bring AI-based NDR and Open XDR capabilities to its Unified Security Platform architecture.

The Mission and Values that Drive Us

Our mission is to bring enterprise-class, AI-driven cyber defense tools to organizations of all sizes to democratize cybersecurity by giving all organizations the ability to safely operate across all connected technologies.

We believe that network traffic is the “truth” and “foundation” of cybersecurity, and we are relentless in finding new ways to utilize data science to improve the efficacy and automation of cyber attack detection and response.

Our values start with hard work, an entrepreneurial spirit, and respect for all peoples and cultures. Our team values are strengthened by our global cultural diversity. We also understand that data science is a black box to many, so integrity and transparency are also at our core.

Our CyGlass lens sees the world in terms of serving and supporting our customer’s success in the enterprises and communities they serve.
