Every organization contains countless points of entry across an ever-changing attack landscape, many of which they aren't even aware of. But one single weak spot is all it takes for attackers to get in the door. So how can security teams possibly eliminate every single point of entry, when their security tools can't even see all of them?

We use our intelligence-agency expertise and keen understanding of hacker techniques to help organizations uncover their shadow risk and protect their entire attack surface before attackers have a chance to exploit any gap.


We believe all organizations should be able to protect themselves from even the most sophisticated attackers. That's why we created the first ever Shadow Risk Elimination platform, putting nation-state level cyber reconnaissance techniques into the hands of every organization. When their risks are no longer in the shadows, companies operate more confidently, safely and freely.

"Attackers always look for an organization's path of least resistance. Most often this is through unknown or unmanaged assets, because legacy tools completely miss them. Our journey began with a question: What if we could simulate an attacker's reconnaissance plan, starting only with a target company’s name? That's how Shadow Risk Elimination was born — to empower companies to take charge of what would otherwise be exploited by attackers."
