Cyberus Labs – SECURE WORLD

Cyberus Labs, Sp.z.o.o. is a new kind of Polish company that is global in its DNA. Co-founded by Silicon Valley and Polish entrepreneurs, Krakow-based Cyberus Labs is cyber-security startup that is introducing innovative cybersec products to the Polish and European markets. At Cyberus Labs we have chosen not to “patch a leaking ship” but to bring a new approach to some vexing security problems.

Founded by George Slawek (CEO), Jack Wolosewicz (CTO) and Marek Ostafil (COO), the company has right from the beginning set its own course - to focus on eliminating cyber threats, and to deliver solutions that will be both secure and easy to use.

Cyberus Labs has taken a different approach to finding a solution to the user authentication challenge and dilemma – the right balance between the need of the user to have a fast and convenient way to log into their online account and the need of the company to have a secure and effective user authentication system. At its core is the elimination of the username/password combination as a user authentication methodology.

The result of our 3 years of research and development in Silicon Valley, CA and in Poland is the CYBERUS KEY password-less logon platform, formerly launched in September 2016 at the Kosciuszko Institute’s CyberSec 2016 conference in Krakow, Poland.

With the CYBERUS KEY users accesses their online account by activating the Cyberus Key mobile application on their smartphone and with one-click logs into their banking or e-commerce account on their laptop. CYBERUS KEY creates a truly secure log on experience and verifies both sides of an on-line transaction, eliminating the risk phishing, key-logging, “man-in-the-middle” or “man-in-the-app”.

SecuRing - more than security testing

SecuRing helps to achieve appropriate level of applications' and systems' security. Founded in 2003. Since then SecuRing has supported leading banks, insurance companies, telecom providers, government institutions and software houses.

Security testing at very end of the project, just before (or after) deployment are still key component of achieving application security. Nevertheless, doing only security tests as a part of UAT is not effective, because significant costs of fixing bugs at late project stages. That’s why besides security testing, we offer support at each stage of development:

Security requirements definition (functional and non-functional)

  • Project reviews
  • Code reviews
  • Consultations
  • Security tests

The goal is to fix vulnerabilities.

  • Our report always includes recommendations on how to fix discovered vulnerabilities.
  • We offer support during fixing phase.
  • We communicate with the tested solution vendor to help them understand problem and provide remediation.
  • We offer additional tests after vulnerabilities are fixed.

The main aspect of security assessment is to take real risk impact into account.

  • Prior to testing, we perform threat identification and threat modeling.
  • We prioritize attack scenarios.
  • We take into consideration business impact as well as business logic.

We say no to fire and forget tools.

  • Automatic tools can only find small percentage of real vulnerabilities.
  • The real threat is live attacker, not automatic tool.
  • We prefer manual verification, using specialized “home-grown” tools.
  • Understandable, customer-oriented report.
  • Realistic and dedicated recommendations.
