Faculty Launch Wombat Security Technologies

December 12, 2008

In a CyLab Chronicles interview, three Carnegie Mellon CyLab faculty members, Norman Sadeh, Jason Hong and Lorrie Cranor share insights and inspiration from the collaborative efforts to turn their ground-breaking, phishing-related research into Wombat Security Technologies.

"As demand for our solutions continued to increase, we also came to realize that, as a university, we would only be able to go so far in distributing and maintaining our solutions. So the path forward was fairly clear and Wombat was eventually launched earlier this year. As a commercial entity, we have gained further visibility and have daily opportunities to talk to customer organizations and to closely monitor phishing attacks as they continue to evolve," said Norman Sadeh.
