Spyderbat’s mission is to empower security analysts with unprecedented speed and precision to quickly verify emerging threats with attack traces, allowing faster intercept of intruders before the breach.

Current solutions have left a critical gap in the security operations workflow between detection and response.

  • This gap widens with digital transformation and the explosion of cloud connected systems.   

  • This gap is only bridged today by overworked security analysts toiling through red herring alerts and ambiguous data.   

  • They manually attempt to retroactively connect the dots between security events and operational activity to determine an attacker’s entry point, attack path, and scope.  

  • This menial, alert-based approach is ineffective, frustrating for talented security analysts, not scalable, and altogether antiquated.

We formed Spyderbat to bridge this gap.  

 

The Spyderbat team includes insiders from cybersecurity and cloud computing focused on developing a solution that is both mindful of today’s threat landscape and security operations, while also an enabler of future trends such as cloud-native DevOps and democratized investigations.
