Our mission

Every day in the business world, millions of sensitive documents, files, and other data are being exfiltrated because traditional data security products have failed to do their job.

These data breaches result in stolen IP, damaged brands, loss of competitiveness, and significant financial penalties. Cyberhaven will help organizations secure all of the data they must protect in order to compete and thrive, not just the data that is regulated by compliance mandates. It’s one big hairy problem and we are up to the challenge.
