Thanking Our Supporters

August 17, 2022

In early 2020, Shadowserver unexpectedly lost a major sponsor. After working successfully behind the scenes as a non-profit organization (NPO) for 15 years, we found ourselves needing to move our entire data center at short notice, and facing a major funding gap. We had to take the unprecedented step of making a public call for urgent financial support, just as the world was going into COVID-19 lockdown.

Despite the terrible timing, many people and organizations quickly offered to assist. Due to their swift and generous financial support, Shadowserver was able to continue offering and expanding our free public benefit services to constituents, with minimal disruption.

Shadowserver’s mission is to provide a baseline of free, timely, actionable cyber threat Intelligence to raise the bar on Internet security for everyone. The financial support we received enabled us to continue playing our unique role in recent global cyber security incidents, including:

We publicly recognized some of the awesome people and organizations for their support at the time. We would now like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has provided financial assistance to Shadowserver during 2020 to 2022 – whether by direct donation/sponsorship, by requesting and paying voluntary invoices, or through funding specific projects and services. We – and the world – owe our continued operation to all of these generous benefactors.

Plus hundreds of other supporters and individual donors.

On behalf of the entire team at Shadowserver, and all of our constituents, we want to recognize the essential financial support you have provided. We could not continue to serve the Internet defender community without your vision, leadership and generosity. Thank you all.

The Future

We look forward to continuing to work with you, and many more organizations and individuals, to make the Internet more secure together through our soon-to-be-announced Shadowserver Alliance. If you share Shadowserver’s belief in an open, secure, resilient Internet for all – please consider joining us and our existing supporters and become a Shadowserver Alliance founding sponsor.
