Damballa was founded in 2006 by pioneering data scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology who were conducting Ph.D.-level research around malicious network communications. They quickly realized that security controls designed to stop attackers at the perimeter would not measure up to advanced methods. Their work caught the interest of ISPs, mobile carriers and forward-thinking large enterprises. Concepts developed in the University lab were put operationalized in live networks and Damballa was born.
Damballa’s nearly decade-long history provides an unbeatable window into global Internet activity. Today, we harvest and train systems on the industry’s largest unfiltered data set, which gives our advanced threat protection solutions the ability to predict unknown threats. Defenders are empowered to combat attackers and keep their enterprise out of the breach headlines.
