What do we do?

Illusive Networks is the first company launched by Team8 (founders all originating from Israel’s Elite 8200 cyber unit). We brought together top cyber-attack specialists and pioneering cyber technology entrepreneurs with decades of collective experience in cyber warfare and cyber intelligence. Illusive Networks was built to tackle what has been a significant and urgent problem for cyber security practitioners—the challenge to stop Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other advanced attacks that bypass security controls and silently gain access to organizations’ most risk-sensitive and business-critical digital assets.

At Illusive, we’re passionate about what we do. We work as a team and embrace new ideas, wherever they come from. We also enjoy all the benefits of a startup environment.
