About Us

We're Building the Future of AI in Cybersecurity

Anvilogic is a Palo Alto-based AI cybersecurity startup founded by security veterans and data scientists from Fortune 500 companies. In 2019, we started building an AI-based SOC platform to lower the barrier to entry for detection engineering and threat hunting skill sets desperately needed in cybersecurity.

Our mission is to democratize threat detection and hunting for today’s SOC teams to easily be done across hybrid, multi-clouds and security data lakes without needing to centralize data or rip and replace tools. Further, with our investments in AI-powered automation of detection-as-code to create, test, tune and deploy detections, SOC users can implement high-efficacy detection and hunting techniques without writing a single line of code nor manually wrangling data.

Anvilogic’s AI-powered Multi-Data Platform SIEM is used by many of the industry’s most advanced security teams.

Mission

To Democratize Threat Detection & Hunting in the SOC with AI

-

At Anvilogic, we believe that threat detection and hunting in the SOC should be built on a foundation of generative AI trained on native security domain knowledge and lexicons, leverage low/no-code capabilities, and work across hybrid, multi-clouds and security data lakes without needing to centralize data, rip and replace tools, or learn new scripting languages.
