Prevoty has developed a new application security technology that enables applications to be monitored and protected at runtime. Existing applications can protect themselves against data exfiltration, malicious content, and user identity theft without requiring any changes to the applications themselves. For new applications, Prevoty’s SDK’s allow developers to add robust application security capabilities into their applications without requiring any security expertise whatsoever. Prevoty can be delivered as a cloud-based service or as a virtual appliance for on-premise implementations.
Prevoty was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
