About our company

Welcome to the Shadow
Risk Revolution

CyCognito empowers companies to take full control over their attack surface by uncovering and eliminating the critical security risks they didn’t even know existed.

Our Mission

To build the next-generation security risk assessment product category: solutions that autonomously discover, enumerate, and prioritize each organization’s security risks based upon a global analysis of all external attack surfaces, and attack vectors that a real attacker would likely exploit.

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.”

Shadow Risk Elimination was born to empower companies to take charge of what would otherwise be exploited by attackers.
