JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sept. 13, 2018 - PRLog -- OnDefend, a cyber security company, recently had an innovative cyber security product accepted into the Y Combinator (YC) Start-Up School. YC is the most prestigious and largest technology accelerator in Silicon Valley, California. Since 2005, the esteemed Y Combinator has helped launch over 1,900 companies including Airbnb, Dropbox, Reddit, Instacart, Stripe, and others.

Chris Freedman, co-founder and managing partner at OnDefend said, "When our Business and Technology Advisor Jack Caven saw our growth potential, he suggested we apply. With a small percentage of companies and products accepted into the accelerator each year, some say it is harder to get into than Harvard, and given the company we are in, I believe it."

OnDefend, founded in 2015, already assists large national clients to protect their companies against cyber attacks, but now YC can help catapult the company's new product, CyberSURE into rapid growth to assist small to medium sized businesses.

Billy Steeghs, OnDefend's cyber advisor, is thrilled YC recognized the importance of CyberSURE, an affordable cyber security solution. "With over 4,000 cyber attacks per day costing small to mid-sized companies millions of dollars, OnDefend saw a need. We created an innovative product to protect these sized companies to help remove their cyber risks and help them prove they are safe to do business with", said Steeghs.

As a selected company, OnDefend will have exclusive access to a YC mentor, online course material and an extensive network of innovators and investors to help cultivate CyberSURE. The culminating event will occur in California where OnDefend will have an opportunity to present their cyber security solution to potential investors.
