KnectIQ, /kəˈnɛkt aɪˈkju/

KnectIQ is a world-leading cybersecurity technology company formed in 2015 because it was clear there was not a good answer to a simple question: How might we keep hackers out and better secure sensitive data?

Company founders believed it was imperative we find a way to stop hackers from accessing communications, systems, networks and devices because sensitive data was being compromised at an alarming rate. And like most new ideas, a roughly drawn picture on a napkin began our journey to build an answer that will help the world eradicate two of the world’s most vexing cybersecurity problems.

It wasn’t long before we discovered that whether it was stolen cryptographic secrets or spoofed identities, the one thing those two problems shared was that their secrets were stored. And a stored secret is a stolen secret. So we asked another simple question: What if secrets didn’t have to be stored? And although there is an entire industry built around secrets management, we found out the answer is secrets do NOT need to be stored and if we do this right it will change the way we secure data in motion from here forward.

The result is a game-changing solution that is the ONLY commercially available patented and patent-pending ultra-secure true ZeroTrust technology that finally solves the stored secrets problem. A three decades old lynchpin that stalled innovative advancements in securing data in motion has been eradicated through the KnectIQ solution. With KnectIQ, no unauthorized persons or devices, even if they are in possession of valid credentials, can gain access to data or network environments. And just like that, silent and undetected entry is a thing of the past. And data is more secure than it has ever been.
