Meet The Team

Founded by Serial Cyber Security Entrepreneurs, Extremely Passionate Red Teamers & Security Researchers. The team has multiple patents in IT security and have broken the best of the cyber security products like McAfee, Microsoft Bit Locker, Sophos, AVG etc

Our Story

One area where cyber attackers have an edge is that organizations test “some” of their assets “some of the time” whereas hackers are attacking all of the assets all of the time. That’s why we built a technology that continuously indexes and monitors the deep, dark & surface web to map out an organization’s digital attack surface including Shadow IT blind spots. The platform then automatically launches safe multi-stage attacks, mimicking a real attacker, to help identify attack paths before hackers do. The platform eliminates the need for multiple tools and significant manual effort while providing continuous and proactive security.
