What We’re Building

We experienced, first-hand, the lack of coverage for hybrid cloud environments, the poor accuracy and limited intelligence that [traditional WAF solutions] use to identify advanced cyber threats and their inability to support deep analysis of trends and web application vulnerabilities. So, we built a better solution for web application protection.”

Bret Settle, Co-Founder, Chief Strategy Officer

We take an attacker-centric approach to risk, rather than a profile-based or signature-based approach. We look at an attacking entity and then apply behavioral heuristics to understand, what is that sketchy traffic really up to?

Tom Hickman, Chief Product Officer

We don’t have ivory towers and people who sit in their silos and work by themselves. It’s really about cross functional collaboration, people across the organization, rolling up their sleeves and working shoulder-to-shoulder.

Gwendolyn Quest, Chief Financial Officer
