About Malcovery® Security
Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis, delivered through software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities.

Unlike services that serve as a response to these attacks today–services that simply address the symptoms, but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal–Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt phishing activities and successfully prosecute cybercriminals.
Malcovery Security was founded by security thought leaders formerly associated with Symantec, Verizon, Cloakware/Irdeto, Checkpoint and Infor/Lawson and is based on patented technologies developed at the UAB Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) and has offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Birmingham, AL.
