Our mission

Every day, millions of sensitive documents, files, and other data are being exfiltrated because traditional data security products have failed to do their job, resulting in an estimated $600B annual cost to the US economy.

These data breaches cause severe near- and long-term impact, including stolen IP, business interruptions, loss of customer trust, weakened competitiveness, and significant financial penalties. Cyberhaven will help organizations secure all of the data they must protect in order to compete and thrive in the digital economy. It’s one big hairy problem and we are up to the challenge.
