Your life’s work, secured by ours
At Smokescreen, we build simple and intuitive solutions that enable companies to predict threats, detect attacks, and respond to breaches. Our products have helped security teams around the world detect threats where others have failed.
Before Smokescreen, our founding team ran high-end red team and breach readiness assessments for some of the world’s largest companies, showing them how their security systems could be bypassed.
They were good at it and it was fun. After a while, though, they grew frustrated with the fact that they were consistently able to break in despite the ‘state-of-the-art’ solutions in their customers’ environments.
They kept asking themselves, “what would catch guys like us?”
Smokescreen is the answer to that question.
While deception has been around for a while, it was still mostly academic and experimental due to the complexity of making it work at scale. But the idea stuck.
We began hand-crafting digital traps for highly targeted organisations that could not afford a breach; places where other defences had regularly been defeated. It worked — and how! They caught things that were invisible to ‘state-of-the-art’ products.
This was our genesis; our ‘a-ha’ moment. Smokescreen was born.
We focus on making targeted threat detection simple, so even smaller security teams can punch above their weight.
