We make security everyone's business

What we do

Security tools have traditionally been built solely with developers and IT users in mind. Cerby believes security should be everyone's business - not just the IT department.

We deliver a seamless end user experience and address the shadow IT problem by enabling end users to onboard and securely use applications of their own choosing.
