About

Who We Are 

We are a dedicated technology provider operating in the Nordics and the UK, offering robust cyber security services to swiftly enhance our clients' security posture and develop long-term cyber risk mitigation capabilities through cost-effective subscription models.

Cyber Risk Factors We Tackle

Cynode's founders, Sebastian Rosendahl, Armagan Zaloglu, Pablo Ridgeway, and Cumhur Hatipoglu, merged their ideas to transform Cynode into a provider of cyber security services addressing four key risk factors organisations face:

  • Lack of security posture visibility: The seemingly straightforward question, "are we secure", is challenging for many organisations to answer. Cyber security practitioners often operate in the dark and need empowerment.
  • Inefficient use of the technology investments: The under utilisation of technology investments is a common issue across various industries. Companies invest in solutions like EDR, SIEM, WAF, NIPS, and others, but these defensive capabilities are often not used to their full potential.
  • Talent scarcity and unaffordable services: Numerous independent reports suggest a shortage of up to 4 million employees in the cyber security field. Organisations struggle to hire or gain access to experienced domain experts because they are either non-existent or too expensive to employ.
  • Difficulty of detecting and responding to advanced attacks: Many organisations either lack detection and response capabilities, or struggle to mobilise these functions quickly and effectively.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be and remain a highly specialised cyber security services company that solves customer problems effectively and builds new capabilities continuously as part of the company culture to stay ahead of the cyber criminals.
