Cyolo is the first real, zero-trust access solution capable of securing every infrastructure regardless of the businesses running on legacy or newer technology systems. This modern approach was sought after one of the founders, Almog Apirion, experienced first-hand as a CISO himself all the challenges to fully “trust” connectivity and access vendors. He understood the importance of closing the multiple gaps in today’s security solutions, especially addressing high-risk identity access within a hybrid world. Almog partnered with two of the world’s leading ethical hackers, Dedi Yarkoni and Eran Shmuely, to pioneer an innovative platform with capabilities not yet explored in the market.

Cyolo implements a new way of layering security by retrofitting existing corporate networks to accommodate a host of modern authentication tools like MFA, SSO, end-to-end encryption, etc. More than 120,000 users are securely connected across the globe to resources, applications, desktops and any required component within their infrastructure. Remote and third-party users can be carefully monitored through auditing and recording capabilities, fast and secure access and continuous authorization and end-to-end encryption.

Cyolo is already providing unmatched user experience and accelerating the traditional levels of visibility and control IT and security leaders have over access, connectivity and oversight – including users on-prem, in the cloud or in hybrid environments. The company has provided multiple enterprises within critical industries – including energy, utilities and finance – with simple, seamless, secure access to the entirety of their organization’s digital assets, while simultaneously limiting user access to only the applications or tools they need to do their job. All without impeding operational productivity and no requirements for change management.

How we are different

Cyolo’s innovation begins with its founders. Through their own experience, they all saw the need for a completely new way to address identity and access. The fundamental gap within vendors was securing connectivity within the impending shift from being network-based to being based on cyberspace identities. This is where Cyolo’s zero-trust platform redefines the way organizational users are connecting to their working environments. Its zero-trust access platform provides a fast, reliable and secure solution that protects both legacy implementations and new technology adoption equally.

Cyolo’s platform is currently the only true enterprise-grade, zero-trust solution for OT, SCADA and ICS systems. Its solution has provided quick, secure connection among onsite and remote users to authorized assets in the organizational network, cloud, IoT environments and even offline networks. Cyolo provides customers with key modern capabilities including supervised access and recording, SSO to legacy applications and real-time threat response. This empowers IT teams with holistic insight and control over both internal and third-party access - including external parties such as clients, customers and business partners.

Cyolo truly understands the value of protecting sensitive corporate information – even from the vendors securing it. Its solution takes a one-of-a-kind approach to customer privacy by providing a fast, low-latency cloud-delivered service while having no access to corporate data and storing nothing in the cloud – meaning, the keys are always with the customer never with Cyolo, which is crucial in highly regulated industries. Recently, PIB, a UK-based brokerage company, leveraging Cyolo, protected their infrastructure while ensuring that sensitive information (such as passwords, encryption keys and tokens) remained within their security perimeter. This automatically improved their ability to adhere to compliance requirements and eliminated the potential for Cyolo’s trust-less architecture to be weaponized against them in a potential supply chain attack.
