The Only Deep Learning Framework Built Exclusively for Cybersecurity.

Deep Instinct was founded on a simple premise: that deep learning, an advanced subset of AI, could be applied to cybersecurity to prevent more threats, faster.

Our Story

Re-Inventing Prevention.

In 2015, Guy Caspi, Nadav Maman, and Dr. Eli David began work on what would become the world’s first and only purpose-built deep learning cybersecurity framework, the Deep Instinct Prevention Platform. Deep Instinct takes a prevention-first approach to stopping ransomware and other malware, stopping threats in <20ms, 750X faster than the fastest known ransomware is able to encrypt.

Deep Instinct was originally founded in Tel Aviv, Israel. Today, business operations are based out of New York City, USA, with a strong presence in Tel Aviv primarily focused on Product, Engineering, and Threat Research.

In September 2022, Lane Bess, former Palo Alto Networks CEO and Zscaler COO, became the CEO of Deep Instinct. Hear his thoughts below on the future of the cybersecurity industry.

"The biggest problem in security is prevention. While most organizations focus on detection, we aim to prevent an attack before it gains access to your organization’s infrastructure because, in many cases, detection is too little too late."
