Creators of the Continuous Compromise Assessment™ model.
Our vision? To measure the world’s cyber-compromise by enabling any organization to continuously and intentionally measure and understand compromise to close the breach detection gap from months to minutes.
To make the life of the security practitioner better. To make compromise more difficult. To make companies feel in control of their disperse, complex infrastructure. To make the lives of our team enjoyable by offering infinite learning opportunities. To delight our customers and deliver on our promises. To impact the cybersecurity industry by changing the status quo. To end data breaches dark days.
