About IronNet

Collective Defense is
in our DNA

IronNet was founded by General (Ret.) Keith Alexander — former head of the NSA and
Commander U.S. Cyber Command — to defend companies, organizations, sectors, and
nations against highly organized cyber adversaries and sophisticated attacks.

“I'm not sure anyone can solve the cybersecurity problem, but our bet is on IronNet’s vision and team.”

  • The vision:

    General (Ret) Keith Alexander, former Commander U.S. Cyber Command, launched IronNet to strengthen cybersecurity defense against highly sophisticated adversaries, across all borders and sectors.

  • The mission:

    To deliver the power and resources of Collective Defense so that any company, organization, or public entity can defend better as part of a collaborative ecosystem with shared knowledge and vetted alerts in real-time.

  • The transformation:

    For decades, companies have been defending against cyber attacks on their own while adversaries have been organizing themselves into sophisticated hacker networks … until now, with IronNet Collective Defense.
