A cybersecurity company that focuses on aircraft security by providing multiple layers of resilience – from fleet assessment and aircrew training to aviation security SIEM – has established an office in the U.S.
The U.S. headquarters of Cyviation, located in New York, will be led by Chairman Arik Arad, who has over 30 years of business knowledge in growing global companies and a wealth of international business development and investment experience. In addition to being chairman of Cyviation, Arad is a partner at Stonecourt Capital and was previously an operating partner at Pegasus Capital Advisors.
"In a time marked by unprecedented international risks and escalating cyber threats, our dedication lies in furnishing the aviation industry with unmatched cybersecurity safeguards, ultimately heightening safety standards," stated Arad. "I am enthusiastic about the positive impact our global presence will bring, ensuring that clients worldwide will also benefit from the superior safety protocols Cyviation offers."
Cyviation CEO Avi Tenenbaum, added, "We are thrilled to embark on this new chapter, expanding our cybersecurity solutions to North America and broadening our global footprint. As cybersecurity threats continue to evolve, our mission remains steadfast: to empower the aviation industry with robust defenses and proactive strategies. This expansion marks a significant milestone in our journey to fortify businesses worldwide against ever-growing cyber risks."
Cyviation provides aircraft cyber event management and intrusion detection for commercial aircraft and private jets with the leading model of aviation cybersecurity, ensuring safe, secure, and proactive defensive measures, and supports airlines and operators’ compliance with upcoming regulations.
As a testament to Cyviation's continued growth and innovation, the company secured a U.S. patent for their novel technology capable of identifying cyber threats within the plane cockpit and avionics systems.
Together with the Cyviation team, Arad will be working to secure air travel for passengers and cargo by helping airlines address and mitigate cyber vulnerability in its fleet.
