About Us

Saporo’s mission is to help organizations increase their cyber resistance no matter their size or industry. Thanks to a unique approach and cutting-edge technologies, we aim at making defenders win the race against attackers and put order in chaos.

The problem we saw

Privileged account access represents the keys to the kingdom for threat actors, enabling them to move around a network almost unabated. With it, attackers can explore and extract as much sensitive data as they like. These same privileged accounts then allow the threat actor to encrypt that same stolen data and hold the organization at ransom. Identifying all potential attack paths in large and dynamic environments is impossible using manual methods. Finding, quantifying and prioritizing where to start and what to do requires automation.

How we solved it

Defenders can never hope to get ahead of attackers if attackers have a better understanding of the battlefield - the organizations own network. By leveraging the same techniques used by threat actors to visualize the most critical paths to critical resources, defenders can start to see their environment as attackers do. Once visibility is achieved, it becomes much easier to anticipate attack paths and implement the appropriate countermeasures and controls.

Testimonials

They trust us

Organizations need tools that address strategic priorities in a super-fast, simple and understandable way by stakeholders in order to provide an adequate response which is compliant and at a bearable cost. The Saporo solution, according to our experience, meets these criterias but above all its interest lies in its philosophy of anticipation (Hacking Minded) of fragilities (with calculation of priorities) of rights and access paths. Beyond the optimization of defenses, it is a tool for minimizing the consequences for the business of organizations (vital, financial, reputational) in case an attack happens. For these reasons and to the best of our knowledge after a POC, this solution is unique on the market.

Saporo is an indispensable solution to prevent and fight against next-generation cyber-attacks. The solution made us aware that our Active Directory design was no longer in line with current risks by auditing our AD directory in a way that was different from other tools, in particular by listing the various attack paths that we had no visibility into until now. All of the information provided allowed us to address the security issues related to AD.

We are thrilled to count Saporo as one of the selected startups in our Tech4Trust Swiss Program powered by Trust Valley and dedicated to digital trust and cybersecurity. Reducing cyber-risk by eliminating excessive access on directories is a great tool in the current race between attackers and defenders.

Time is of the essence.

It is a race of time between the attacker and the defender. Winning the race against attackers requires ordering the seemingly chaotic connections between users, assets and resources to expose and prioritize paths that attackers will most likely exploit.
