Breaking down barriers
to improve defenses

The cycle of today’s threat prevention companies…

  1. 1. Acquire subscribers with new, but incremental improvements over the old
  2. 2. Increase subscription fees while "optimizing" the business, slimming R&D staffs that maintain the product's edge
  3. 3. Surrender edge to a newcomer
  4. 4. Repeat

PolySwarm is different

PolySwarm rewards those who continuously demonstrate expertise in identifying the latest threats. The need for R&D never diminishes.

Rather than rest on laurels and brand identity to gradually increase subscriptions costs while keeping output relatively constant, PolySwarm experts are rewarded for staying on the cutting edge, innovating on behalf of their customers.

The future of security is clear.

Today’s market forces users into one-size-fits-all products incapable of providing comprehensive coverage, PolySwarm’s distributed community of experts rewards specialized knowledge that together protects users from All Angles™.
