CO-FOUNDERS JAY KAPLAN AND MARK KUHR
launched their careers with the NSA and US Department of Defense as technical security experts protecting the country from both kinetic and cyber attacks. They had a shared vision to revolutionize cybersecurity by combining human intelligence and artificial intelligence to create a scalable, effective security solution. Synack trusted crowdsourced security was born.
Our pledge to the cyber community
The name Synack comes from the foundational protocols of the world’s online networks. SYN-ACK is the “handshake” that transfers data packets between sender and receiver. We saw in those trillions-per-second moments a better model for securing the connections that drive communication and business. And we saw something else, too. A chance to unite technology and human intelligence in another kind of handshake—one that would revolutionize cybersecurity based on trust.
