For whom is Cyberhive EUROPE® developed?

Cyberhive EUROPE® is designed and created for European vendors and end-users. European vendors can be any size, from start-ups to large enterprises, and everything in between. End-users are the users looking for European cybersecurity products and services. This can vary from CISO, IT expert or private individuals.  



Why does it take up to 4 hours during working hours to get validated? 

Every potential user is validated manually. This means that the registration data is checked by the Cyberhive team in accordance with the entry policy. Sometimes, the verification email ends up in spam, so make sure to check your spam box if you have not had a follow-up email on your registration!
