Our History:

In 2020, a major cyberattack suspected to have been committed by a group backed by the Russian government penetrated thousands of organizations globally including multiple parts of the United States federal government, leading to a series of data breaches. The cyberattack and data breach were reported to be among the worst cyber-espionage incidents ever suffered by the U.S., due to the sensitivity and high profile of the targets and the long duration (eight to nine months) in which the hackers had access. Within days of its discovery, at least 200 organizations around the world had been reported to be affected by the attack, and some of these may also have suffered data breaches. Affected organizations worldwide included NATO, the U.K. government, the European Parliament, Microsoft and others. The attack, which had gone undetected for months, was first publicly reported on December 13, 2020, and was initially only known to have affected the U.S. Treasury Department and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. In the following days, more departments and private organizations reported breaches. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_United_States_federal_government_data_breach

In December 2020, Bryan Daugherty and Gregory Ward founded Certihash to apply scalable blockchain technology to the National Institute of Science and Technology(NIST) cybersecurity framework.

Certihash research and development team assembled and Sentinel Node is chosen as the first of 5 products, focusing on the detection phase of the NIST framework.

Certihash partners with IBM consulting to begin development of ‘Sentinel Node’, a next-generation cybersecurity detection tool that is able to mitigate the overall time to identify a data breach from the average 212 days to nearly instant, significantly reducing the life cycle and total cost of a cyber-attack.

Sentinel Node launches with selected partners.
