CyCognito solves one of the most fundamental business problems in cybersecurity: seeing how attackers view your organization, where they are most likely to break in, what systems and assets are at risk and how you can eliminate the exposure.
CyCognito solves one of the most fundamental business problems in cybersecurity: seeing how attackers view your organization, where they are most likely to break in, what systems and assets are at risk and how you can eliminate the exposure. Founded by national intelligence agency veterans, CyCognito has a deep understanding of how attackers exploit blind spots and a path of least resistance. The Palo Alto-based company is funded by leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists, and its mission is to help organizations protect themselves from even the most sophisticated attackers. It does this with a category-defining, transformative platform that automates offensive cybersecurity operations to provide reconnaissance capabilities superior to those of attackers. It is a External Attack Surface Management solution.
The CyCognito platform takes the attackers’ perspective to help you dramatically reduce your overall business risk. With no deployment required, it autonomously discovers all assets discoverable via the internet. This process finds assets that were previously unknown, unmonitored, and exposed to attack. Then, it maps your organization’s entire attack surface and identifies the business context of assets. It then detects and prioritizes the critical points of exposure that attackers can most easily exploit and then offers prescriptive remediation guidance, accelerating remediation and validating fixes. The platform continuously monitors and tests all assets associated with an organization. It alerts to new, existing, or recurring issues, and provides remediation guidance to fix those issues and eliminate the risk presented by that asset.
