Our Mission

The disruptive power, scalability, and low entry costs of software applications changed business forever. Yet, as businesses have prioritized speed and performance, the ability to effectively protect these applications has not kept pace. That’s where Virsec comes in.

We believe it's time to reimagine security and start protection from the inside, where it matters most. We have pioneered unique technology to protect the entire server workload – from top-to-bottom and end-to-end – on any platform. We provide comprehensive security across all layers, including web, memory, process, and hosts, from development through operations.

Our security platform instantly identifies any deviation or exploit in application performance during execution and immediately protects against it. Our unique technology defends against the widest range of attacks, both known and unknown, with no prior knowledge required. By protecting the entire server workload – we secure all your critical business applications – from legacy to COTS to custom.

Our Team

Virsec is led by experts from various disciplines, including network security, semi-conductors, embedded systems, and real-time memory systems. We are passionate about what we do, and believe our technology will make the world a safer and better place. We have decades of experience delivering innovative technology and leadership at companies including AMD, Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Juniper, Dell, NextGen, BMC Software, Websense, as well a long list of high-growth and successful start-up organizations.
