the study of networks


Twenty years ago, when we founded the first DDOS defense company, we envisioned this day. We saw networks that could operate without dedicated security devices. Networks that could secure themselves without human intervention or complex security support. 


Today, we have made that vision a reality. By using the vast compute power of the cloud, Netography turns any device in your network into a security asset. Through remote monitoring and analysis, your network secures itself with or without your direction. Additionally, the remote tools give you unprecedented monitoring and visualization of your network. 


IP is a protocol full of flexibility. It can securely enable the free flow of information, or become a tool that is so insecure it encumbers business and can even endanger human lives.

Previous security paradigms have not been working. It’s time we create something new that does work for the modern network.

The Team Building the Future

From San Francisco to Russia, we have assembled a highly skilled team of the most brilliant minds in network security. Each one of us lives, breathes, and thinks security. As a result – without much work on your part – your network will become much more secure.
