COGNISTX Teams Up With Kriptos to Develop AI Solutions to Shield Businesses From Hacks and Data Breaches

PITTSBURGH (Nov. 19, 2020) – Cognistx (, a tech firm that builds bespoke AI solutions, announces its partnership with Kriptos (, a leading provider of cybersecurity services, in the development of next-level artificial intelligence and advanced technologies to protect businesses from digital incursion.

Cognistx will work with the California-based company to make the Kriptos product offering more robust through specially designed AI solutions. Kriptos is widely known for using machine learning to classify and label a business’s internal documents to protect it from data breaches.

Cognistx data scientists will use machine learning and natural language processing to further elevate Kriptos’s cybersecurity solutions. The enhanced AI will better assess a client’s data quality issues, extolling insights to refine encryption and prevent loss of confidential business information. The efforts will focus on developing solutions that update, adjust and learn automatically as information is updated.

“Our joint efforts will prevent data incursions that can cripple operations and finances and permanently damage a business’s reputation,” said Cognistx CEO Sanjay Chopra.  “The need for enhanced cybersecurity has never been more necessary than now, with companies relying on a remote workforce because of COVID-19.”

Since launching in 2018, Kriptos has gained a reputation as the go-to solution for companies looking to shield their information from data threats like ransomware. On average, 80 percent of a company’s data is stored on individual computers and on-site servers, putting the company at risk for data breaches. Kriptos’s products allow companies to assign security levels to their internal documents; they then track how that information is used and who’s using it.

“We’re empowering companies to take control over their information. Working with Cognistx ensures we’re providing the best technology driving our cybersecurity products and staying ahead of cybercriminals who prey on businesses with weaknesses and gaps in their networks,” said Christian TorresCEO and Co-Founder of Kriptos.
