“I view this opportunity as a great challenge to join a fast-growing company and to focus on advanced digital and account-based marketing approaches to accelerate the company’s growth,” said Shopp. “Digital transformations are rapidly moving forward while at the same time creating new exposure to more sophisticated malware attacks. Deep Instinct’s product based on artificial intelligence technology comes at a time when the world needs a new approach to deal with cybersecurity attacks that are overwhelming enterprises in every corner of the world.”
Deep Instinct has grown rapidly due to the high demand for its groundbreaking Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) technology, with an over 400% increase in annual recurring revenue (ARR) and 300% increase in customer base in 2019. In 2020, the company is on track to double its ARR. Managed Security Service Providers and Global 2000 Enterprises rely on Deep Instinct to protect more than two million endpoints and mobile devices.
About Deep Instinct
Deep Instinct is the first and only company applying end-to-end deep learning to cybersecurity. Deep learning is inspired by the brain’s ability to learn. Once a brain learns to identify an object, its identification becomes second nature. Similarly, as Deep Instinct’s artificial deep neural network brain learns to prevent any type of cyber threat, its prediction capabilities become instinctive. As a result, any kind of malware, known and new, first-seen malware, zero-days, ransomware and APT (advanced persistent threat) attacks from any kind are predicted and prevented in zero-time with unmatched accuracy and speed anywhere in the enterprise – network, endpoint, mobile – enabling multi-layered protection.
