Founded by domain experts and entrepreneurs with a proven track record in cybersecurity

Michael Mumcuoglu (CEO) and Yair Manor (CTO) are veterans of Unit 8200, the Israeli equivalent of the NSA, where they met and worked together on offensive and defensive cybersecurity.

Michael went on to found one of the first network behavioral analytics companies that was subsequently acquired by Palo Alto Networks, where he spent 3 years launching the Cortex XDR platform. Yair was co-founder of Netonomy, an IoT security company that was acquired by Allot, and previously was Director of R&D for data security company Zerto.

Throughout their careers, they have seen first-hand how complexity and constant change in the environment are the root causes of cybersecurity weakness in organizations. They also noticed that existing cybersecurity tools, systems, and processes don’t address these underlying issues, and made it their mission to solve them with CardinalOps.

Cut the complexity. Cut the noise. Find and fix the gaps …


CardinalOps is a growing company that’s making a big dent in the cybersecurity universe – impacting all industry sectors that we depend on every day to maintain the quality of life we enjoy, including financial, industrial and manufacturing, health and pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, professional services, and more.

Most security vendors pitch customers on replacing their stack or adding new monitoring tools to it. CardinalOps has a more practical approach.

The CardinalOps SaaS platform uses automation and MITRE ATT&CK to address some of the biggest complexity headaches that organizations have in managing their existing SOC detection solutions and operationalizing MITRE ATT&CK. And it does this without requiring you to walk away from the investments you’ve made in your current stack.

Our customers include a top 10 private equity firm; top 10 consumer packaged goods manufacturer; top 25 energy firm; top 10 cable operator; top 10 global law firm; national stock exchange; and a top 15 MDR/MSSP.
