Kognos continuously monitors all activity and relationships to detect suspicious behaviors and trigger investigations.
The platform investigates hundreds of billions of relationships using thousands of forensic questions per second. The intuitive UI fuses all observed evidence to form visual storylines for full context and impact to bubble up high risk stories.
Through the isolation of impacted devices and quarantining suspicious processes, Kognos sink-holes malicious domains.
Kognos uniquely understands the importance of identifying attack campaign directionality, blast radius and, most importantly, intent. Through integrating existing investments with API-based adaptors across EDR, NDR and SIEM, the Kognos platform ingests alert data to determine which behaviors are most critical to address to perform both retroactive and real-time analysis of attack campaigns. The Kognos autonomous XDR investigator is the only solution that is able to trace and investigate complete attacker campaigns, active campaigns, and failed campaigns.
“Kognos provides a unique solution to visualize all the happenings on a network, enabling humans and technology to work together and create defensible networks. Kognos is an antidote to solving the problem of seeing attacker campaigns in action,” said Sarah Lucas, General Partner, Lucas Venture Group.
The company has raised a seed round to date from Lucas Venture Group, Cyber Mentor Fund and angel investors.
Launched in 2020, Kognos is the cybersecurity industry’s first and only autonomous XDR investigator platform that detects, investigates and responds to attack campaigns. Founded on the principle that attacker behavior is indicative of attack methodology, attribution and data for exfiltration, Kognos leverages the power of relationships using security aware AI to fundamentally reduce dwell time by tracing the attacker’s path in real-time.
