Zerho is a team of accomplished technology experts who joined forces after discovering that most existing cybersecurity products were not nearly as effective as claimed. We saw this industry shortcoming as an opportunity to challenge the status quo with a new security paradigm. Our force-multiplier approach and innovative machine learning enhances your ability to detect, defend and prevail against constantly evolving threats from active adversaries. Our goal is to provide the most advanced and effective technological solution to defend against the fiercest cyberstorms.
With this as our mission, our company was born.
At Juniper Networks I evaluated top cybersecurity solutions to recommend the best product for a large, well-known client. Almost none lived up to the claims made on the outside of the box. Most vendors’ solutions involved a mere rebranding of existing legacy solutions that did not actually utilize machine learning. Only a few use what can legitimately be called machine learning and even these seemed to use off-the-shelf algorithms not suitable for cybersecurity. I thought: Is this really the best there is? I can do better. So, I pulled together a team of people with the background and motivation to make this solution a reality.
Andrew Auerbach is a technology expert and entrepreneur. He was formerly Special Technologies Architect in the Office of the CTO at Juniper Networks.
In this role, he led an elite engineering team for special technologies, architected complex solutions for strategic customers, and was a voting member of the governance committee reporting to the board of directors. Prior, he founded an ultra-low latency quant hedge fund trading equities, options, and futures. He invented several patented technologies. He holds a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in economics and computer science from Harvard.
I had been exploring the use of risk-based technologies and automation in government regulatory oversight as a way to get more leverage from the limited regulatory resources typically available in transition economies. I met Andrew while doing my Master’s degree at Harvard. I was intrigued by the new technology he was pioneering and saw that the potential impact is enormous. So, when he called about forming Zerho, I immediately joined.
Milo Stevanovich is a former CPA and lawyer who ran a series of economic development projects in Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East with Booz Allen, PwC and Deloitte.
A number of these efforts included large scale automation of courts and setup of government oversight authorities using innovative automated risk-based oversight systems. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting, Juris Doctorate, and most recently a Master’s in Public Administration from Harvard.
I’ve taught computer science at Harvard for 45 years because I like smart people who are working on hard problems. I’m proud to be a member of Zerho’s outstanding team, which has developed a suite of sophisticated products to address the biggest challenges in cybersecurity.
Harry Lewis is the Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
With over forty years of teaching at Harvard, as well as serving as Dean of Harvard College from 1995-2003 and Interim Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in 2015, he has helped launch thousands of Harvard undergraduates into careers in computer science. His most well known students include both Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, who originally named Facebook “Six Degrees to Harry Lewis”. He has authored six books and numerous articles on computer science. He holds bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in Applied Mathematics from Harvard.
Stephen Kent is a pioneer in the architecture of network security systems, including the design and development of network layer encryption and access-control systems and standards; secure transport layer protocols; secure e-mail technology; Public Key Infrastructure standards and certification authority systems.
He was formerly Chief Scientist for Security Technologies at Raytheon BBN Technologies, where he was engaged in network security research and development activities for over a decade. He chaired the Internet Engineering Task Force working group of Privacy-Enhanced Electronic Mail, and he currently chairs the Internet Privacy and Security Research Group. He served on the Secure Systems Study Committee of the National Academy of Sciences and has lectured on network security throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Loyola University New Orleans, and S.M., E.E., and PhD degrees in computer science from MIT.
In navigating digital challenges to the retail industry, I recognized cybersecurity as the most important threat of our times for businesses, governments, and individuals alike. Exploring the forefront of innovation, I became interested in Zerho. Zerho’s team is at the cutting edge of this constantly evolving field, which is why I wanted to be involved at the outset.
Peter Lowy is a visionary businessman who was Co-CEO of Westfield Corporation, a world leading shopping center operator with 35 iconic retail destinations in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
He successfully executed the sale of Westfield for $15.7 billion in 2018. Prior to joining Westfield in 1983, he worked in investment banking in London and New York. The Harvard Business Review named him as one of the 100 Best-Performing CEOs in the World. He is also on the executive committee of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council for Los Angeles County, and served on Rand Corp.’s executive committee and board of trustees. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of New South Wales, Australia.
Cybersecurity is a key component of national security. As adversaries become more sophisticated, so must our capabilities. I left the federal government to join Zerho because it is unique and at the tip of the spear of technology to keep ahead of evolving threats.
