Protecting our future, by securing our Cyber-Physical society

With deep roots in AI-driven cyber-physical security research and intrusion detection, at Exalens, we are enhancing operational resilience for cyber-physical systems at the OT edge.

Our Mission

Industries like Manufacturing are making a massive shift to an ever-connected ecosystem.

We know that business owners and teams have enough on their plates that integrating and maintaining sophisticated cybersecurity in operations creates greater complexity to an already challenging network of systems. We believe that to make digital transformation a true revolution, cyber and physical system visibility needs to be unified, and security monitoring needs to be automated.

That’s why we’ve created a single automated platform to empower businesses and engineers with the cyber-physical security they need to keep producing every day.

Our Story

Exalens was born out of the passion to protect and enable our emerging Cyber-Physical society.

Back in 2012 Exalens’ founders, working across Industry and Academia, discovered first-hand how the technology landscape was shifting on a seismic scale. Increasing connectivity and automation between computer systems and physical machines was leading to greater and very real risk of cybersecurity compromise, that would not only affect computer systems, but also have the potential to create significant adverse effect in the physical world, threatening critical infrastructure that protects our very way of life.

This led Exalens founders to begin the first research in proving how convergence of cyber and physical behaviour monitoring, with the use of AI, helps to shift cybersecurity balance, by automatically spotting and distinguishing cyber, physical and cyber-physical threats faster and more accurately than either alone. Armed with this insight and understanding its ramifications for securely enabling connected-industry and cyber-physical systems, Exalens was created.
