Barkly Overview

Barkly is advancing endpoint security with a smarter approach

The majority of U.S businesses are compromised in cyber attacks each year despite existing endpoint protection. Barkly was founded to solve this problem.

Our team of veteran tech leaders and career security experts believed there was a stronger, smarter approach to endpoint protection, and developed patented technology capable of blocking all types of attacks and continuously evolving to stay ahead of new threats. The Barkly Endpoint Protection PlatformTM combines this strong, smart protection with simple management designed for the way people work today. Barkly uses automation to reduce or eliminate manual administrative tasks, and was the first endpoint protection company to introduce mobile incident response, enabling administrators to take action on security incidents from their smartphones.

The Barkly Endpoint Protection PlatformTM has been certified as an antivirus replacement by AV-Test and Coalfire and is compliant with PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and NIST-FCIC. The product and team have been featured in Wired, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, SC Magazine, and more. The company is backed by investments from NEA and Sigma Prime.
