About CloudVector

About Us

CloudVector is a Silicon Valley cybersecurity company that was established in 2018 by founders, executives, and the topmost engineers from Netskope, Agari, McAfee, Juniper, Bromium, Google Cloud, and VMWare. We’re on a mission to accelerate businesses on their digital transformation journey by protecting them from advanced API threats.

As application architectures are undergoing a revolution and enterprise perimeters are disappearing, the APIs are the new ‘network’, forming the new ‘fabric’ of computing. Current security solutions cannot address the latest and evolving threat models. APIs are now the big threat scene. Our software solution offers the most comprehensive API security platform, allowing your enterprise to discover, monitor, and secure absolutely all APIs in your environment with zero-impact to your developers.

Why the Name CloudVector

As enterprise assets increasingly move to the cloud, so does the attack vector. CloudVector is a recognition of the powerful potential of cloud computing and our mission to protect these enterprise-scale computing environments from emerging API threat vectors.

"We are on a mission to protect enterprises everywhere from large scale hacks and breaches by keeping APIs secure."

Careers

Do you want to be part of the mission to tackle the next big cyber threat for enterprises? See open positions below!
About Us:
CloudVector is the first API Threat Protection platform to go beyond the gateway that discovers, monitors and secures APIs to prevent data breaches. The proliferation of APIs have encouraged threat actors to target this new attack vector, increasing the risk of major data breaches.

CloudVector is purpose-built for modern application architectures, and is deployed with zero impact to inline performance, with no changes required to applications or DevOps processes. In fact, CloudVector eliminates the need for manual API specification to deliver immediate time to value. CloudVector was established in Silicon Valley by founders, executives, and the top most engineers from Netskope, Agari, McAfee, Juniper, Bromium, Google Cloud, and VMWare.
