Protectstar™ was founded in 2004 by German security expert Chris Bohn in a small storage facility. Today, Protectstar™ has more than 3,000,000 customers in 123 countries, from industrial, government, and military sectors, as well as individual users. Protectstar™ was among the first companies to check mobile devices for security risks, a pioneering effort leading to significant security improvements in smartphones. In 2006, it released the award-winning iShredder™ Windows, which has become an industry-standard in secure data deletion. The company's iShredder™, released in 2011, is the leading Android and iOS data erasure app that protects against third parties restoring deleted files. Since 2016, Protectstar™ is one of the first companies to apply artificial intelligence and deep learning to cybersecurity. The coming new revolutionary technologies provide real-time prevention and unmatched zero-day attack protection for endpoints and mobile.
