Our Story

sandfly is a small, annoying, relentlessly-biting black fly indigenous to New Zealand.

We’re called Sandfly because like sandflies, we’re headquartered in New Zealand. We also relentlessly bug and discourage intruders, deploying like a ‘swarm’ onto endpoints and then disappearing only to return again and again. Our swarms of checks make life miserable for intruders on your Linux hosts while minimizing system impacts.

Our Mission

At Sandfly we believe that Linux needs a dedicated and reliable security solution that works across all systems and infrastructures without drama. With so many mission critical systems running Linux, we are exclusively focused on securing this platform with market-leading agentless technology that goes beyond traditional approaches.
