Naval Dome has developed the world’s most complete and secure maritime cyber defense solution for mission critical onboard system.

Itai Sela founded NavalDome in March 2016. Itai had spent his career in the Israeli Special Forces and Navy. As part of this work he was heavily involved in electronic and communications warfare. Having seen first-hand the increase in Operational Technology “OT” cyber-attacks he understood the need for a new set of strategy and technologies to fight the coming “OT” individual, corporate and state sponsored attacks.

He teamed up with a long-time friend, Asaf Shefi who served as the division commander of the Israeli Navy’s first focused Cyber Defense Unit. The two of them then signed up their first venture funding from Elron venture partners with Ray Car-Carriers as the lead funding partner. Yohai Bar Zakay joined as VP Business Development with vast cyber knowledge as he had been second in command of Israel’s famed 8200 Cyber Intelligence Unit.

The team focused on building out their first TAS series of products for the Commercial Fleet, Port, Oil & Gas, Military and OEM OT suppliers. They gained the highest level of cyber security rating in the industry and have never looked back as they continue to build the first and only Operational Technology “OT” Cyber Security company.

Naval Dome is led by Israeli ex-navy officers and cyber defense experts.
