Nimbusec was born from a real challenge: What is the best way to keep a large number of decentrally managed websites secure while maintaining data protection?
We asked this question when we were running servers for hundreds of websites of an Austrian university. Students and affiliated offices operated a large number of content management systems, which were often barely updated. This led to many successful cyber attacks, but due to university policy, administrators were not allowed to read or write data in user directories.
We therefore developed a solution that used public information only in conjunction with a machine-generated, abstract code-behavioral description to detect malware, defacements and blacklisting: Nimbusec was born.
