We are an intelligence driven security provider, established to meet the growing need for rapid, accurate cyber intelligence and incident mitigation. Our founders are veterans of elite military cybersecurity and intelligence units, where they acquired a deep understanding of how hackers think, collaborate and act.

We partner with organizations to boost their cybersecurity and remediate their cyberthreats. This is achieved through a subscription-based service which:

  • Infiltrates the cyberthreat underworld to detect and analyze planned or potential attacks and threats that are specific to our partners.
  • Provides advance warning and customized insight concerning potential cyber attacks, including recommended steps to avoid or withstand the attacks.
  • Delivers in-depth analysis of cyberthreats originating from in-house sources, third-party sources or threat actors.

IntSights is backed by Glilot Capital Partners, Blumberg Capital, Blackstone and Wipro Ventures.

OUR TEAM

GUY NIZAN

CEO & Co-Founder

Mario Andretti, the world champion American racing driver said “If things seem under control, you’re just not going fast enough”. That really sums up Guy, who has acquired extensive expertise through a number of positions in the defense and intelligence world but is still running fast and growing. Guy was an officer in the cybersecurity unit of the Israel Defense Forces, after which he managed a Security Operation Center (SOC) and served as a cyberthreat consultant to financial organizations. Always seeking new challenges and to share his knowledge, in 2014 Guy established Cyber School together with Alon Arvatz, in order to provide teenagers with courses, seminars and summer camp workshops on cyber intelligence.

GAL BEN DAVID

CTO & Co-Founder

Gal lives cyber intelligence 24/7/365. It’s not his fault – he was born a computer geek, and that’s why he dreams about cyberthreats and knows how hackers think, collaborate and act. Gal previously served as an officer in an elite intelligence unit in the Israel Defense Forces, where he gained extensive experience in information security and offensive and defensive operations. As CTO, he integrates this experience with his thirst and enthusiasm for knowledge. He is an expert at detecting hacker identities, motivations, characteristics and methods of attack, and delivering the tactical, operational and strategic cyberthreat intelligence, analysis and remediation that IntSights’ customers demand.

ALON ARVATZ

CPO & Co-Founder

George S. Patton said “If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking”. Alon thinks, but not like most of us. And it’s this quality that has given him vast experience and knowledge in the world of cyberthreat intelligence, and why he has succeeded in working in the most advanced environments in the world (most of which cannot be discussed here!). After serving in an elite intelligence unit in the Israel Defense Forces, Alon joined Guy Nizan to establish Cyber School, a center providing teenagers with courses, seminars and summer camp workshops on cyber intelligence.
