Malcovery was launched in early 2013 as a result of an exclusive, worldwide license from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and based on research in cyber forensics conducted at the Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) at UAB, Malcovery has quickly gained commercial success with enterprise customers such as eBay, Facebook, Visa, IBM, and others.

About Malcovery® Security

Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis, delivered through software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities. The company's patented and patent-pending technology provides the ability to identify the ‘root sources’ of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), delivering rich intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging e-mail-based threats.

Unlike services that serve as a response to these attacks today--services that simply address the symptoms, but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal--Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt phishing activities and successfully prosecute cybercriminals.

Malcovery Security is based on technologies developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) The Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) and has offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Birmingham, AL.
