Digitally Transforming A Company Enabling Them To Go Public
Cybersecurity (IRNT – NYSE)
IronNet is a market-leading cybersecurity software company whose Collective Defense Platform leverages advanced AI-driven Network Detection and Response (NDR) capabilities to detect and prioritize anomalous activity inside individual enterprise network environments.
Founded in 2014, IronNet Cybersecurity’s two core offerings as part of its Collective Defense platform, IronDefense, and IronDome, are cutting-edge technology. Throughout six years of rapid Collective Defense growth serving hundreds of customers internationally, IronNet continued to invest to ensure their products are technologically advanced and best of breed in their market. For IronNet, it is paramount to ensure they innovate rapidly, deliver value efficiently and scale while providing a world-class experience.
The IronNet product leadership team determined that IronDome and IronDefense must scale to support orders of magnitude more customers to meet expected demand. IronNet wanted to improve the architecture to be leaner, increase performance, and leverage SAAS and Amazon Web Services design best practices as they evolved both products.
