Business description: The name Synack comes from the foundational protocols of the world’s online networks. SYN-ACK is the “handshake” that transfers data packets between sender and receiver. We saw in those trillions-per-second moments a better model for securing the connections that drive communication and business. And we saw something else, too. A chance to unite technology and human intelligence in another kind of handshake—one that would revolutionize cybersecurity based on trust.
