Who We Are

Bricata supplies network security solutions that deliver innovative next generation intrusion prevention, advanced threat detection and analysis, and threat hunting to enable large organizations to actively pursue and identify advanced, persistent, and coordinated attacks. A specialized component-based approach to today’s attacks has left organizations with a stack of tools to manage that provide a patchwork of uncorrelated data, leaving penetrable gaps and inconsistent security policies. The Bricata platform provides organizations with process automation, streamlining operations with the most effective, affordable solution for situational awareness and proactive threat defense, reducing complexity, dwell time, and time to containment.

Management Team


Bricata was founded by three industry innovators in 2014 and has subsequently grown an experienced management team with over 11 decades of combined global cyber security, engineering, sales, marketing, and management experience.
