About Gurucul

Gurucul is changing the way enterprises protect themselves against insider threats, account compromise and data exfiltration in both on-premises and cloud environments.

Gurucul is backed by an advisory board comprised of Fortune 500 CISOs, and world-renowned experts in government intelligence and cyber security. The company was founded by seasoned entrepreneurs with a proven track record of introducing industry-changing enterprise security solutions. Our mission is to help organizations protect their intellectual property, regulated information, and brand reputation, from insider threats and sophisticated external intrusions.

Gurucul technology is used globally by organizations to detect insider fraud, IP theft, external attacks and more. Gurucul is headquartered in Los Angeles.
