Newly headquartered at Bellevue in Zurich, Cyverse has catered to over 50 multinational customers in Europe, providing cutting-edge cyber-defense technology and services.

The Israeli Cyber-Security Ecosystem

Our Services

We offer hands-on cyber-security services which are delivered by an elite team of cyber-security experts.

Our Technologies:

We monitor the Israeli cyber-security startup ecosystem, in search for technology solutions that meet the following criteria:


  1. Best-in-breed, next-generation solutions for enterprises
  2. Highly reliable vendors with sound financial backing
  3. Seamless product delivery and product support
  4. No visibility into customer data or infringement of customer / employee privacy
  5. Commercial use only, no relationship whatsoever to the government or the military


We conduct in-depth analysis of the product and the team to secure that the product is suitable for our customers. We enable our customers to select whether they would like to interact directly with the Israeli vendor, or conduct the business through Cyverse AG. Both options are available.


Here are a few highlights from the Israeli cyber-security ecosystem:


  • The ecosystem consists of over 500 cyber-security startups, concentrated in a few main locations in Israel
  • 15% of the global annual sales in cyber-security are generated by Israeli cyber-security vendor
  • Israeli cyber startups are inspired by the success of publicly-traded companies that were founded by Israeli entrepreneurs, such as CheckPoint, Palo Alto Networks, Imperva and CyberArk
  • The ecosystem enjoys the constant flow of young talent coming out of professional cyber-security military service, in units such as the 8200 Elite Technology Unit of the Intelligence, the Encryption Unit, the Software Unit, and the Talpiot Course
  • The ecosystem is fueled by venture capital funding offered by the State Office of the Chief Scientist, together with a robust infrastructure of Israeli and foreign venture capital funds, and dozens of Israeli and foreign angel investors. According to the IVC Meitar report, between 2013-2017, Israeli cyber startups raised 2.2 billion USD in capital from investors, and exited for 5.4 billion USD (in acquisitions and IPOs)
