  • Horizon3.ai

    Horizon3.ai fuses former US Special Operations cyber operators with AI experts and cyber-security engineers, to deliver continuous, automated red teaming as a service. We see the world for what it is - bloated security tools, alert fatigue, reports filled with false positives, ‘checkbox’ security culture. CISOs are tools rich and capabilities poor. Security teams are understaffed and overwhelmed with fix actions: patches, vulnerabilities, and alerts. Attackers know your organization better than you do. Attackers don’t ‘hack in’, they log in by chaining exploitable vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and harvested credentials. We ‘Turn the map around’, to see your enterprise through the Attacker’s perspective to find, prioritize & fix security problems that matter by prioritizing attack vectors over vulnerability defense. We deliver the attacker's perspective by running Node Zero (N0) recon, continuous, automated pen-test & red team operations, building “cyber terrain maps”, and running analytics to identify angles of attack. 100% True SaaS – no consultants, no professional services - using AI to attack as insider threats & APT’s to identify your ‘exploitable’ vulnerabilities – ‘no cheating’ with agents or up-front configuration. Organizations must shift to agile security operations with continuous assessments, changing behavior from reactive to proactive and maximizing ‘Return on Effort’ by finding, prioritizing, and fixing what matters. Our vision isn't to be a pen testing company, we're a data company that will use our cyber terrain maps to deliver disruptive security products. Legacy Pen Testing & Red Team operations are just the first pillars to fall. Horizon3 is an HMG Ventures funded company.

  • Sonatype

    The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.
