Breaches are in the news every day. Whereas, the industry is in an educational phase, called ‘crossing the chasm,’ whereby IT staffs are just learning about how and why do breaches happen on systems protected by antivirus software, and behind their corporate firewall. SnoopWall is one of the very few information security companies who knows the problem. They prevent breaches. They assume that the network or the device is already infected, this makes their approach more proactive and offensive to network security.
Adding a Shield to all the Data and Devices
SnoopWall is the world’s first breach prevention security company, delivering a suite of network, mobile, and app security products as well as cloud-based services; protecting all computing devices from prying eyes and new threats through patented counterveillance cloaking technology. SnoopWall secures critical and highly valuable confidential information behind firewalls with their award winning, patented NetSHIELD appliances and with WinSHIELD on windows and MobileSHIELD on Google Android and Apple iOS mobile devices. These products are upgraded with next generation technology that detects and blocks all eavesdropping and spying. SnoopWall’s software products and hardware appliances are all proudly made in the U.S.A.
CEO Steering the Company to Success
Gary Miliefsky, CEO of SnoopWall is responsible for directing the company to success. He always looks after his company’s shareholders, investors, board members, employees, consultants, customers, and partners and makes sure the company operates in a harmonious, productive, and positive fashion. “I must always listen to all of these parties to make sure I am steering the ship in the right direction, for success,” asserts Gary.
Gary believes in starting each day with an infectious positive attitude. He shares, “I wake up and start every day with one initial thought: being thankful for the abundance in my life – family, friends, company, and more. Nothing good ever comes easy. Hard work and dedication always pays off. I believe that a positive mindset is a key to overcoming all obstacles, and I radiate this to my team. Choose to be positive.”
Expecting same from his team, Gary says that an employee who cannot wait for Monday, to come into work and passionately succeed in a focused and organized way is a lot better than an employee who cannot wait for the end of the week – Friday, and say that they can’t wait to get out of work. He wants team members who end up loving their job and their work environment.
The Journey from the First Product to the Current Advancements
The first product created by SnoopWall was PrivacySHIELD, a consumer-focused mobile security product that has protected all SmartPhones, even the infected ones. They launched it in 2013 and gained great notoriety in the mainstream media for being one of the first companies to provide an actual ‘app layer’ firewall for mobile devices. The problem with this solution is that most consumers don’t care nor do they want to pay for mobile security. SnoopWall then evolved this technology to make it AppSHIELD SDK, more focused on being an embedded app layer firewall, only to run from within mobile banking, mobile wallet, and mobile commerce applications. This allowed them to grow revenues by leveraging the same technology, from a fair and reasonable licensing payment, i.e. B2B model, instead of the no-payment B2C model. As a result, over 100 financial institutions, and growing, are using AppSHIELD SDK to secure their mobile banking experiences for their customers.
The team is now working on integrating their MobileSHIELD for android and iOS as well as their WinSHIELD for Microsoft Windows with the NetSHIELD Enterprise appliance so that they can also be managed through their command center. This will allow customers to solve the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) high risk dilemma. They are also enhancing their Malware Quarantine system, to always stay one step ahead of the next threat.
Unique Features of Solutions
SnoopWall’s solutions deliver on their promise to dramatically reduce the risk of a successful breach in the most cost effective way. They offer fanatical support and they care about all of their customers and partners. The team also provides free training. Speaking of competition, the closest competition takes 10x the time and cost to deploy.
SnoopWall offers innovations that no one has ever seen, such as malware pre-cognition and agentless isolation, to instantly detect, alert, and block systems that are about to get infected, are already infected, and/or are rogue and do not belong on the corporate intranet. They also provide a free command center inside their NetSHIELD Enterprise appliances that can help command and control remote appliances deployed anywhere.
Gary says, even with these innovative and reliable solutions, it’s challenging to get customers to buy their solution quickly, because they don’t have budgets for Breach Prevention, they have budgets for network audits, for firewalls, for antivirus, and other reactive countermeasures.
“This is a great challenge and also a great opportunity for us. Once we show partners and their customers what our NetSHIELD appliances actually to stop a breach in its tracks, they become partners and customers for life,” concludes Gary.
