The first decentralized threat intelligence marketplace

Crowdsourcing truth by market design and Ethereum smart contracts.

The antivirus industry is broken

Existing antivirus products offer duplicative coverage, are not interoperable, and are designed to focus on known widespread threats. New malware is being produced and deployed at a faster pace than antivirus products can keep up with.

Introducing PolySwarm

PolySwarm is a threat detection marketplace where antivirus companies and enterprises dramatically expand and improve their protection coverage against new threats.

A single vendor, employing a centralized group of threat experts, provides a one-size-fits-all solution. This leaves you vulnerable to attacks.

Micro-engines, developed by a global community of security experts, converge to quickly analyze the threat, providing broader analysis and protection that’s tailor-made to your exact needs.
