Cyberfort Software, Inc. (OTC: CYBF) envisions a digital future where everyone, from individuals to global corporations, can enjoy free access to data from any device and share private information without fear of malicious cyberattacks robbing them of privacy and security. The company specializes in the development and acquisition of cyber security, content filtering and ad blocking IP with a goal of protecting data and the integrity of personal and business computing assets while defending against attacks or threats.
CYBF sees its mission as protecting and strengthening the cybersecurity of companies and digital end users by focusing on innovative technologies and practices. As the company continues to expand its portfolio of cybersecurity IP, the focus is on:
- Content filtering by restricting access to malicious sites
- Ad blocking
- Malware protection by removing viruses and other potentially infectious malware
- Web security by protecting against vulnerabilities like unpatched browsers
- Consumer security technology development to prevent password theft and credit card fraud
- Targeting other digital security and privacy vulnerabilities that could be exploited
“Since our inception, CYBF and its management have been committed to developing and bringing technologically advanced cyber security software and products into the marketplace,” Daniel Cattlin, Cyberfort CEO, said in a news release (http://nnw.fm/cSoM6). “Our development team is dedicated to identifying and creating important and effective products that secure our digital world. Our commitment as a company is to deliver the best and most effective products to the cyber security market.”
The global cost of cybercrime is more than $600 billion annually, according to a 2018 report by cybersecurity vendor McAfee. Analyst firm Gartner estimates that 2018 global spending on cybersecurity will reach nearly $100 billion, growing eight percent in just a year’s time (http://nnw.fm/KwN38). Cyberattacks are the fastest growing category of crime, with some analysts calling the current state of cyberthreats a pandemic.
To combat this climate, in 2016, Cyberfort acquired Vivio, an iOS ad blocking and content filtering app for Apple hardware including iPhones, iPads and Macs (http://nnw.fm/KfO5l). The app allows its more than 10,000 unique users to browse a faster, cleaner and safer Web. It also cuts data usage on mobile devices by as much as 38 percent and, as a result, provides longer device battery life. To keep current with changing advertising technologies, Vivio implements continuous ad blocking rule updates delivered by a cloud-based autonomous engine with ad blocking tracker and malware detection filters.
The company is developing an enterprise version of Vivio, with enhanced features and technology for business use. Expected features include a range of privacy-centric data and bandwidth optimization options, permission-based controls so companies can ensure the security of their employees’ devices and a cloud-based management suite with analytics tools.
Cyberfort recently agreed to acquire Just Content Software, which also makes an iOS app by the same name (http://nnw.fm/H8tA9). The Just Content app is an ad blocker that also helps protect users against unsafe Web links, adult sites, phishing attempts and hate speech found on the Web. A due diligence phase is underway, and the acquisition is expected to be finalized within a few weeks.
“CYBF aims to become a leader in developing cutting edge ad-blocking protective software that keeps the Internet safe for families and business, which in our highly technological and immediate information-access society, is a significant concern,” CEO Daniel Cattlin said in a news release. “Acquiring Just Content furthers CYBF’s commitment to provide the best and most effective ad-blocking software in the marketplace.”
