About us

At Cynet we are driven by a single purpose: making breach protection within reach for any organization, regardless of its size and security skills. This is why we envisioned the concept of Autonomous Breach Protection – zero operational overhead, zero maintenance efforts, and zero manual operation, while rendering best-of-breed adaptive protection from the widest set of commodity and advanced threats.

We believe that cybersecurity is not an end, but a mean to our customers’ productivity. As such it must not consume resources, but act as a for manual intervention. Our Autonomous Breach Protection platform fulfills this requirement by enabling our customers to transit from a legacy, manually operated stack of multiple point products, to a single platform that seamlessly converges and automates all core breach protection functionalities.

Company History

Cynet was founded by in 2015 by serial entrepreneur Eyal Gruner. Coming from a rich background in offensive security, Gruner closely experienced the unbearable ease with which organizations’ defenses could be penetrated, despite the high volume of security products in place. As a result, he set out to build a new breed of technology that would disrupt the imbalance between the attackers and security products, and radically change organizations’ security level.

With peers from Israel’s best cyber and business talent, Gruner built up the Cynet platform, which pioneered the world’s first Autonomous Breach Protection. Cynet’s flag product Cynet 360 is now deployed across a global install base of hundreds of customer environments and keeps growing at a rapid pace.
