RiskSense has a unique DNA, as the company was founded by real cyber security practitioners and not your typical entrepreneurs. We’re a spin-off of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and originally conducted research-as-a-service projects. As part of a think tank that advised the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community, we developed Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism Against the U.S. (CACTUS), Support Vectors Intrusion Detection, Behavior Risk Analysis of Vicious Executables (BRAVE), and the Strike Team Program.
Over the years we realized that our findings and expertise could serve a broader set of customers. We productized our knowledge and created the RiskSense Platform which transforms cyber risk management into a more collaborative and real-time discipline across a growing attack surface. The RiskSense Platform embodies the expertise and intimate knowledge gained from real world experience in defending critical networks from the world’s most dangerous cyber adversaries.
In today’s dynamic threat landscape, innovation is key. Since its inception, RiskSense has invested heavily in research, leading to a variety of patents that are part of the DNA of the RiskSense Platform. To stay ahead of cyber adversaries, RiskSense employs a deep bench of security researchers and collaborates via its Fellowship Program with leading IT and cyber security programs at New Mexico Tech, UC Riverside, and Carnegie Mellon University, among others.
