CyCognito was founded by veterans of national intelligence agencies who understand how attackers exploit blind spots that legacy approaches help create, and who recognized the need for a radical new approach to risk assessment. Its mission is to help organizations eliminate their most critical security risks, which are often unknown to them: assets and attack vectors that are part of the organization’s IT ecosystem but may not be managed by IT and security teams because they are in various cloud, partner, subsidiary and “abandoned” environments. Sophisticated attackers actively seek these assets, which create “shadow risk.” Its next-generation security risk assessment platform enables Fortune 500 and other leading brands around the world to autonomously discover, enumerate, and prioritize their organization’s shadow risk based upon a global analysis of their external attack surface and the attack vectors that a real attacker would likely exploit.
