Who We Are

Here’s the story about a company disrupting cybersecurity with technology and software.

About Us

The industry can be better.

“Too many false positives”

“My cyber analysts are overworked”

“I have too many tools”

“I can’t even keep up with patches”

As a cybersecurity expert, Founder Joe Cummins saw the fundamental flaw in cybersecurity as an industry fighting ever growing threats with disparate tools that more often than not made things more complicated, expensive and lacking any positive business impact.

With the creation of CybernetIQ and it’s software CLAW, Joe and the team have sought to create an industry leading solution that connects all cyber security systems under one umbrella. CLAW allows organizations to easily identify and control each individual layer of the network environment to ensure the safety, security and resilience of Critical Infrastructure and Enterprise systems.  

The CybernetIQ team has the highest credentials and includes industry award winners, published authors, and respected thought leaders who regularly speak at leading security conferences including: Black Hat Arsenal, RSA, DEFCON, Blue Hat, CPNI, SANS, and SERENE.
