Cyviation NY office will fight cyber threats
The US team will be working to secure air travel for passengers and cargo by helping airlines address and mitigate cyber vulnerability in their fleets. Chairman and security veteran Arik Arad will lead the US HQ.
Cyviation is bringing its multi-layered cybersecurity to the US market from NY.

Cyviation has established an office in the US and named a head of the Americas to lead the company's expansion after recently raising an additional $4 million. The company is an Israeli cybersecurity business focusing on aircraft security by providing multiple layers of resilience ranging from fleet assessment and aircrew training to aviation security information and event management.

The US headquarters, located in New York, will be led by chairman Arik Arad, who has over 30 years of growing global companies and a wealth of international business development and investment experience. In addition to being chairman, he 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," says 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."

CEO Avi Tenenbaum adds: "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 defences 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, ensuring safe, secure and proactive defensive measures, and supports airlines and operators' compliance with upcoming regulations.

The company secured a US patent for its technology that is capable of identifying cyber threats within the aircraft cockpit and avionics systems.
