Through Partnership, Sheepdog will Offer its Physical Security Customers with Access to AppGuard Autonomous Endpoint Security, and AppGuard will provide its Customers with Access to Sheepdog’s Training

NEW YORK, N.Y. –Dec. 19, 2017  -  AppGuard, a global leader in endpoint and IoT security, today announced a partnership with Sheepdog Response, a military and counter terrorism training organization, founded and operated by Tim Kennedy, widely known as the most dangerous man in the world.  As modern enemy’s capabilities become more advanced and frequent, organizations and individuals are more at risk than ever. AppGuard’s autonomous endpoint security will provide Sheepdog clients with protection against attacks and attack vectors that traditional anti-virus software is not equipped to face.

The partnership itself allows for Sheepdog clients to have access to cybersecurity technology that will protect them from all known and unknown cyber threats. “When I was introduced to Sheepdog Response I immediately recognized that the core missions of both of our organizations were the same - protecting our clients from those who wish to do them harm.  ” said Jon Loew, CEO of AppGuard.

AppGuard’s autonomous endpoint security ensures major corporations and organizations are protected from all known and unknown cyber threats. Sheepdog Response physically trains their clients from major private and public enterprises, including military and law enforcement professionals to be prepared to respond to threats like mass shootings, terrorist attacks, violent mugging or home invasions. Tim Kennedy, Co-Founder and Head Instructor brings his background as a Special Forces Sniper, black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Modern Army Combatives, and top rankings in UFC, to the table in training individuals, major corporations, military and law enforcement professionals around the world.

“Cybersecurity is critical to ensuring personal security.  The ability of the enemy to compromise digital assets allows them to effectively hunt individuals and penetrate companies, military operations, and governments.  We’re excited to introduce AppGuard to our customers as the most effective solution we’ve seen in the cybersecurity space,” said Tim Kennedy, co-founder and lead trainer for Sheepdog Response.
