Wombat Security Technologies was founded in June 2008 by Drs. Lorrie Cranor, Jason Hong and Norman Sadeh, all faculty members at the School of Computer Science at world-renowned Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). At CMU, our co-founders had been leading the largest national research project on combating phishing attacks, focusing on addressing the human element in cyber security and on developing novel, more effective anti-phishing filtering solutions. This project, which was funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense, yielded a uniquely effective suite of cyber security software training and filtering technologies. These technologies provided the foundation for Wombat Security Technologies’ line of products and continue to be refined and extended by our co-founders.
Today, Wombat Security Technologies is a leading provider of cyber security training and filtering solutions. Its software-based training solutions are designed to be engaging and effective, and have been scientifically proven to be significantly more effective than other traditional training solutions. Wombat’s anti-phishing filtering solutions have been shown to catch significantly more phishing attacks than other filters. Wombat’s products are used in sectors as diverse as finance, government, telecom, health care, retail, education, transportation and utilities.
