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.
PolySwarm is a threat detection marketplace where antivirus companies and enterprises dramatically expand and improve their protection coverage against new threats.
How PolySwarm works
The PolySwarm ecosystem incentivizes what matters most: quality output of malintent detection. It rewards honest market participation through collection and distribution of fees to value-adding, active security experts.
How we compare

|Privacy||Customers can see everything from anyone||Anonymous participation and private communities|
I’m thrilled to be working with PolySwarm because they’re uniquely addressing an important issue in cyber security.

With more and more advanced malware being released on a daily basis, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to perform detection and understand the motives of attackers in near real-time. We believe the PolySwarm ecosystem is capable of achieving this exact goal.

Given the challenges that this industry faces, the ecosystem that PolySwarm has created enables a much broader and richer level of contribution from all cyber experts to tackle new threats. Very happy to be working with such an innovative team like PolySwarm.
