All thanks to cybersecurity, when cybersecurity was invented it did not matter a great deal but as the internet began to intertwine, cybersecurity problems started to occur and today cybersecurity is paramount to individuals, families, organizations, governments and educational institution.

Understanding the importance of cybersecurity, Nucleon was founded by veterans in the cybersecurity who have over 20 years of experience and deep understanding of the cybersecurity market and its weaknesses. The founders of Nucleon have already founded and managed cybersecurity startup till it was acquired in 2009. Since then the founders had been looking to develop a product that could finally help organizations to really deal with cyber-attacks using the best technology available and that is Nucleon.

Nucleon is built on innovative technology that gives organizations the ability to block cyber-attacks based on predicting where cyber-attacks are going to come from and block the threats before they try to breach the network.

Using Nucleon technologies organizations of all sizes can complement their security tools with a new layer of cybersecurity that is proactive. Nucleon is able to predict threats based on a methodology and tools that were developed, Nucleon is using its own wide network of patented technology called polymorphic sensors, the polymorphic sensors are collecting information about cyber attacks around the world, 24x7. All the attacked data is being transferred to a secure cloud application that is using sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms and other methods to identify details about the attacks. For example, learn who was targeted, from where and how and get to conclusions that are actionable for the end clients.
