From Vision to Action

Our vision is to create resilient enterprises, ensuring continuous protection and integrity of every client’s digital architecture (the ‘hive’).

1 The Name Origin

Hive Pro’s name reflects our commitment to teamwork, mirroring bees to a hive where each expert contributes to your unified cybersecurity defense.

2 Conceptualization

Our journey began with recognizing the issues that the scanner tool sprawl and resulting data chaos cause in reducing the attack surface. Enterprises deserve a simple and unified approach to proactive threat defense.

3 Exposure Assessment

We started by building for exposure assessment, meaning a way to identify and evaluate vulnerabilities, prioritize them by threat impact, and provide remediation options.

4 Cyber Validation

We then added cyber validation to confirm the effects of potential threats and assess the ability of security controls to block or mitigate their impact effectively.

5 Continuous Intelligence

The best intelligence serves the best outcome. We enrich our capabilities with HiveForce Labs’ 4 R&D teams tracking threats, actors, vulnerabilities, and attacks.

6 Where We Are Today

Today, we provide Uni5 Xposure, one platform offering comprehensive threat exposure management via exposure assessment and cyber validation, backed by intelligence curated by HiveForce Labs’ R&D teams.
