A specialist in counterveillance security software, SnoopWall was recognized by Insight Success magazine as one of the “50 Most Valuable Tech Companies for 2015” and listed by CIO magazine as one of 10 “cloud security startups to watch.” The company has leveraged its patented cloaking technology to develop a range of solutions: NetSHIELD appliances, MobileSHIELD agent, and AppSHIELD SDK, designed to provide security for networks, mobile devices, and apps. The latter technology, AppSHIELD, was demonstrated during Snoopwall’s appearance at FinDEVr 2015, and has been deployed at more than 95 financial institutions.

SnoopWall was founded in 2013 and is based in Nashua, New Hampshire. Gary Miliefsky is CEO.

SnoopWall Earns Spot in “50 Most Valuable Tech Companies for 2015”

SnoopWall_homepage_Jan2016

Insights Success magazine has named SnoopWall one of the “50 Most Valuable Tech Companies for 2015.”

“This recognition reflects on the professionalism of the entire team at SnoopWall,” company CEO, Gary Miliefsky said. “We are committed to continuing to provide high-quality cyber security solutions for our customers in 2016.”

Writing about SnoopWall, Insights Success magazine praised the company for “build(ing) innovative and next generation security solutions that solve the worst problems in network security not resolved by firewalls and antivirus solutions alone.”

Miliefsky echoed this last point, noting that “most breaches happen behind firewalls,” and adding that SnoopWall represents “the world’s first patented Intranet Security solution priced right” for SMEs. SnoopWall specializes in providing application, cloud-based, mobile, and network security products and services that leverages its patented “cloaking technology” to defend against both hackers and malware.

SnoopWall was named by CIO magazine as a “Top Ten Cloud Security Startup to Watch,” and earned a #1 ranking by Cybersecurity 500 as a mobile device security company. The company acquired NetBeat NAC Technology and Business Unit from Hexis Cyber Solutions last May, and launched its mobile wallet security toolkit in February.

Calling itself the world’s first “counterveillance security company,” SnoopWall was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire. The company demonstrated its APPSHIELD SDK at FinDEVr 2015 in San Francisco.

SnoopWall_homepage_FinDEVr2015

snoopwall.com | snoopwall.com/blog | @SnoopWallSecure

SnoopWall_FinDEVr2015_logoIt’s the year of mCrime (mobile Crime), and all banking apps are easily eavesdropped on by ‘trusted apps’ that actually have malware allowed on iTunes, Google Play, and Microsoft App store. SnoopWall will present a live demo of this ‘breaking into my own banking account’ on mobile using a malicious Flashlight App. Then, you’ll learn about AppSHIELD SDK.

Increase Adoption of Your Mobile App with AppSHIELD SDK
AppSHIELD SDK is the only solution to this problem that works. We;ll show how IBM Trusteer SDK and INAUTH SDK and Arxan are easily circumvented by Cyber criminals to steal consumer PII. If you see AppSHIELD SDK in action (in 95+ financial institutions), you’ll want it in your banking app to protect your consumers and your brand.

Key Takeaways:

  • All Mobile Banking Apps are Insecure and Hackable
  • Many Trusted Apps Exploit these mBanking Vulnerabilities
  • Our AppSHIELD SDK is the only solution to make mBanking Apps Bulletproof
