We are an Internet data measurement and risk modeling company, and we're applying our collective experience to tackle one of the most challenging problems in Cybersecurity — the measurement of cyber risk with the goal of creating actionablemetrics that are immediately useful for mitigating enterprise cybersecurity weaknesses, and ones that are predictive in nature.

In short, we are trying to understand what makes some networks more likely to be victims of cybersecurity incidents, by applying large-scale data measurements, machine learning, and analytics.

To do this, we have built a system using cutting-edge, patent-pending network measurement and attack prediction research. Our approach has been peer-reviewed and demonstrated to successfully predict cyber breach. No other product can make this claim.
