Why Inception

Get deep and actionable visibility into your own environment so that any member of your security team can detect and respond quickly to attacker compromise—whether current, future, or even in the past. Inception enables a SOC analyst to identify malware variants with the click of a button.

Guided threat analysis, detection, and response

The Inception platform delivers pioneering capabilities for recursive threat hunting, detection and response, enabling you to outsmart attackers.

Because Inception pre-preserves the evidence in your environment, you have the ability to apply new learnings across past, present and future states. Contrast this with anti-virus, which is point-in-time, and SIEMs that store data, but don’t preserve the original artifacts for later examination.

Inception gives you visibility from the inside out, streamlining your ability to determine which threats matter most to your organization.

And attackers can’t perceive or test against the out-of-band defenses you create with Inception, keeping you out of their reach.

How it works

Create tailored, constantly adapting defenses


Inception makes it easy to collect any file within your environment, creating a virtual evidence locker that’s private, secure, searchable, and tailored to your organization.


Inception automatically analyzes all collected files, keeping a living record of your environment—past and present—to create tailored intelligence and enrich it with external information and emerging insights.


Use the pre-preserved view of your environment to separate the signal from the noise, understand relationships between the malicious and the suspicious, and identify previous compromises and prevent future threats.


Inception is designed to integrate with your security workflow. You can use pre-built integrations or use the Inception API to build a custom integration.

Continuous and retroactive scanning with the Inception platform gives us increased visibility to potentially malicious activity across our network environment—even in the past— and the ability to quickly triage those files.
