Meet the Team

We are a group of security veterans with over a century of combined experience building products ranging from firewalls, SIEMs, intrusion detection systems, web threat detection and want to question why our efforts are still struggling to protect enterprises. The day we realized that most products are built on a foundational tenet of events instead of relationships that exist in the data, is the day we decided to start Kognos.

Kognos continuously monitors billions of relationships to detect suspicious behavior. Once detected, Kognos uses an AI powered inquiry engine to ask thousands of forensic questions per second to fully contextualize the attack and present the findings as complete attack campaigns, allowing the analyst to respond in real-time.
