Cyberfort Software, Inc. (CYBF) is a cybersecurity technology company specializing in the acquisition and development of security software, content filtering, and ad blocking technology. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Cyberfort Software is actively dealing with various cyber threats through the development of innovative protection technologies designed for mobile, personal and business tech devices across multiple platforms.
Committed to the idea that everyone – from individuals to global corporations – should be able to enjoy a digital future free of malicious attacks robbing them of privacy and security, Cyberfort is working to strengthen its portfolio of cybersecurity IPs and stay one step ahead of cyberthreats. The growing plethora of tech devices enveloping everyday life opens the door to increasing cyberattacks through a stunning array of sophisticated cyberthreats. Protecting organizations and individuals with proactive security postures and protective measures is a key component of Cyberfort’s strategy to develop cybersecurity solutions that are smart, simple and efficient.
The company’s 2016 purchase of Vivio, a provider of pioneering AI content filtering and software protection, underscores Cyberfort’s commitment to cybersecurity. Vivio, an iOS 10 ad blocking app, currently serves over 10,000 unique users across iPhone, iPad and Mac. Vivio makes web browsing better, faster and more satisfying by blocking ads and reducing data usage, which also helps save battery life. Continuous ad blocking rule updates are delivered via an Intellectual Property Cloud-based autonomous engine with ad blocking tracker and malware detection filters.
Cyberfort recently signed a letter of intent to acquire Just Content Software which includes the Just Content app, software and underlying source code. Just Content is an efficacious and multi-functional ad blocking app that safeguards families and businesses with proprietary “Home Safe Filter” and “Business Filter” products. The Just Content app is available on iTunes and protects against unsafe links, adult content, phishing sites and inflammatory hate speech found on the internet, among other potential backdoor attacks and cyberthreats. A due diligence review is underway and a final determination regarding this acquisition is anticipated within weeks.
“Cyberfort 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. Acquiring Just Content furthers our commitment to provide the best and most effective ad-blocking software in the marketplace,” says Cyberfort CEO Daniel Cattlin.
Favorable government regulations promoting tightened web security is a major factor driving adoption of web content filtering solution along with the public’s growing desire to better manage network bandwidth consumption and protect their online security and privacy. Cyberfort’s objective is to protect the data and integrity of personal and business computing assets and defend those assets against any threat or attack. The company’s software also offers symbiotic ad-blocking capabilities to complement its cyber defense effectiveness.
As Cyberfort continues to innovate, the Vivio team intends to leverage the current user base as a sandbox to test and optimize future incremental developments targeting an enterprise suite of tools that can be integrated into sector specific areas of growth. Key areas of focus include mobile device management, bring your own device (“BYOD”), mobile app management and secure mobile browser.
The Cyberfort leadership team is headlined by Cattlin, who offers a new age perspective to the business with expertise in project and asset management and a background in corporate finance. Cattlin brings both the operational and financial understanding to take companies from start-up and early development to expansion and capital growth within a public environment.
