Making security everyone’s business
Security tools have traditionally been built solely with security and IT users in mind. Unfortunately, the pandemic only made things worse with remote work and the emergence of many applications that don’t support essential security standards like single sign-on.
This unruly group is best referred to as “unmanageable applications” (yeah, we coined that term) because, in their current state, they are precisely that, unmanageable in the enterprise. With Cerby, we flip the script and bring them into the fold. We believe security should be everyone's business.
The power of a name
Our name is short for Cerberus, the Greek three-headed dog that guards the gates of hell. At Cerby, we prevent all hell from breaking loose when it comes to your unmanageable application security.
Our mission is to transform security into an employee productivity booster and make it simple for any team member to deploy, access, and share the technology they need to securely get their work done.
