“Most cybersecurity systems have the same interface as the cable modem in your house,” he says. “That needed to change.”
ProtectWise, which Chasin co-founded in 2014 in Denver with former McAfee exec Gene Stevens, completely reimagines the way cybersecurity software looks. Instead of staring at pie charts and seemingly infinite strings of characters, you’re presented with something much more visual: a three-dimensional cityscape. Your company’s entire network is laid out in front of you, and you can easily detect and observe abnormal behavior in real time—or rewind to see when and how an attack occurred.
To create the company’s futuristic interface, Chasin recruited Jake Sargeant, a Hollywood designer who has worked on visual effects for CGI-intensive films like Tron: Legacy and Terminator Salvation.
