Cyemptive Technologies, a provider of preemptive cybersecurity products and technology and winner of the Department of Homeland Security’s national competition for most innovative border security-related solution in the market, today announced that it has named cybersecurity expert, author, speaker and ethical hacker Bryan Seely to the position of Senior Security Architect.
Seely rose to fame when he became the first hacker to successfully wiretap the United States Secret Service and FBI. A frequent industry speaker, advocate of consumer rights and privacy relating to technology and author whose books include Cyber Fraud: The Web of Lies, Seely has a long track record of providing consulting and training services to companies of all sizes on how to outsmart hackers and protect their organizations from cyberattacks.
“We’re pleased to have another person of Bryan’s caliber join the Cyemptive organization,” said Rob Pike, founder and CEO of Cyemptive Technologies. “His unique blend of experience and knowledge of cyberthreats, particularly of hacker behavior and mindset, will be of great benefit in helping clients protect their organizations from cyberattacks.”
“Cyemptive’s approach is a such a game changer that all my previous hacks would not stand a chance against this technology,” said Seeley. “It is far superior to any Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology I have seen and will rapidly replace AI-based solutions in the market today as the company continues to scale. It is amazing to finally see a cyber defense technology that actually works and very exciting to be part of it.”
In his new role with Cyemptive, Seely will be responsible for designing, building and overseeing the implementation of network and computer security for Cyemptive’s base of business and government customers, using Cyemptive’s patented technology that monitors the state of files, rather than the state of APIs. By using this approach, Cyemptive’s products can identify and eliminate cyberthreats in files before a problem is initiated, unlike current API monitoring technology that only reacts and attempts to correct once compromise has already occurred, which is often too late to prevent disruption to a system.
