About Exonar

We believe that data should protect and power organisations and the people they serve


On a mission

Every organisation struggles to know what's contained in the volumes and the complexity of the data they own. We have a simple mission to solve this problem by discovering organisational data at an epic scale

How it all started

When our first client came knocking, they’d already employed nine people to search through two million documents for nine months in an attempt to identify what had been stolen in a cyber attack.

Their view was that “we don’t know exactly what information we have, so it’s hard to know what’s missing”.

So we thought, what if we came at it from a different angle? What if we put ourselves in the shoes of someone wanting to steal data. How would they see what was there and know what to steal?”

With the freedom to think creatively, we worked out a way within 21 days, and the seeds of our current product was planted.

And it’s captured the eye of our investors, because they too believe that organisations should be able to use data better to power and protect their organisations and the people they serve.

This is why Exonar is a Series A funded, UK technology business.
