About Us

Founded in 1988, CyberSoft took the industry by storm with the VFind UNIX anti-virus product. Not only was it the first anti-virus scanner for UNIX, it was the first heterogeneous (multi-platform) virus scanner, as well as the first scanner to incorporate a full virus description language, CVDL.

We live in a dangerous world where the automation of processes from military battle management to global financial transcation are vulnerable. Our mission is to protect these systems and to do it better than anyone else in the world. We provide UNIX and Linux server security as well as anti virus and malware protection for critical systems.

Our continued research, developement of the lastest tools necessary for us to anticipate and deal with historical, contemporary, and future attacks maintain high degree of efficiency in anti-virus software. Our products will protect the customer to the best of our ability which includes providing support and training to our customers so that they can utilize our anti-virus products to their maximum benefit.

Why CyberSoft?

In the field of anti-virus, computer security, CyberSoft is a niche player - we do one thing and we do it very well. We solve problems. Specifically computer security problems - such as virus attacks, hacking, data theft, etc.

So how can we help you?

Self Healing

Our Avatar tool, which is part of the VFind™ Security Toolkit Professional, provides self-repair - including coded verification of your system baseline. Avatar uses a compiled read-only database that includes security rules along with replacement files.

File Integrity & Event Monitoring

Using a highly-secure encryption process, the Cryptographic Integrity Tool (CIT) - found in all of our VFind™ Security Toolkits can be used to verify the contents of any file, or external volume and will alert you anytime a specific file or volume has been altered. CIT will report on what is actually happening on a system, and compiles a text-based report for easy reading and parsing.

Data Spill Clean-up

The VFind™ pattern analysis program (available in all of our VFind™ Security Toolkits) can not only be used for anti-virus scanning, it is fully programmable by the end user. With our CVDL language if you can think of it, you can scan for it.

We are the only company to support anti-virus on all major UNIX platforms (including Solaris, HPUX, AIX, IRIX, Linux, SCO UnixWare, and BSDi), if you're looking for a robust security toolkit that detects all forms of attacks, our VFind™ Security Toolkit family of products are sure to be the solution to your computer security needs.

While most computer security manufacturers create complicated, monolithic programs, all of our products contain individual tools that are easy to install, configure, and use. Our customers constantly surprise us with new uses for the tools in our VFind™ Security Toolkit line. Each component can stand alone or be linked together as "software objects" with our other tools, and the only restriction is the imagination of the user. The use of standard input/output and "smart scan" make any third-party interface to our products simple and efficient. We can also port to any UNIX system upon request.

By itself, VFind™ is a powerful general purpose pattern analysis tool that can be used to scan every byte of every file for any type of data you need to locate. Because of the strength of our general scan it has great benefits in virus scanning. We release VDL updates at a minimum of four per week. These databases include patterns for Microsoft, UNIX, Linux, Java, Macintosh and any other type of attack we can obtain samples for - these patterns are for viruses that are found in operation globally, not from "virus zoo" found on a hacker web site. CyberSoft will also put out pandemic warnings with database updates as soon as we can determine one exists. We took care the IloveYou virus by 8:30 AM EST on the day it struck. We did similarly with the LoveLetter and AnnaKournikova viruses. We had a code for the Nimda-A virus weeks before it struck (since we got it before it even had a name, we called it the Readme virus).

While there are some effectual anti-virus products on the market, they are not as versatile as our toolkits. For example, an anti virus product only scans for viruses, assuming that the files it scans are identifiable by the file names themselves - it cannot break down the file bit-by-bit to identify the type of file by it's contents, nor can it report on all files that have been added, deleted, modified or duplicated. If you also add the disinfection of macro-viruses from OLE documents - such as Microsoft Office documents - then you have one powerful toolkit!

All of our products use as little System Administrator time as possible. They are easy to install and maintain - whenever possible, the products operate without human intervention and perform their work in the background. The installation instructions for the UNIX version of our toolkits are to execute the "install" script.

Our products assume little to nothing about the environment that they are operating in. We assume that all systems are under attack at all times, and that nothing can be trusted.

"As an Internet Administrator whose main servers are Sun Unix systems, I always seem to be fighting that never ending battle of keeping [hackers] off my computers. Even with the security patches and router access control, one of [them] got lucky. If it wasn't for the CyberSoft Cryptographic Integrity Tool, I would never have known that my /etc/rc* boot files were modified. CIT has really made my life easier administering my system. Besides saving my proverbial skin that day...I look at that output everyday to give me an indication of what is going on the whole system. Great Tool!"
