Our Company

Our story began with our co-founder, Candan Bolukbas, trailblazing cybersecurity avenues as a certified ethical hacker (CEH) for NATO. Thanks to Candan’s expertise, NATO was able to uncover existing cybercriminal loopholes exposing member countries. Candan’s work led him to an epiphany: vulnerable third party contractors were stepping stones to the primary target. In 2016, realizing his insight had commercial implications, Candan and his team built a cyber risk rating platform that could identify, continuously monitor, and scale, sparking a revolution for what third-party cyber risk management means to businesses today—and in the future.
