Sensato was founded by CEO John Gomez, who saw a disturbing trend among cybersecurity firms and IT professionals: a focus on protecting data from outmoded stereotypes of hackers.
What Gomez knew, and others are learning, is that the cybersecurity threat goes well beyond data: in today’s connected world, attackers have their sights set on critical infrastructure and healthcare. They endanger human lives by infiltrating systems in these sectors. They can. They have. And they will continue.
“Cybersecurity is about standing shoulder-to-shoulder and fighting back...as one team.”
—John Gomez, Sensato CEO
Our mission is to stand between good and evil.
John Gomez founded Sensato with a mission. Not the boilerplate mission statement every company concocts. A true mission.
Gomez has developed an impressive arsenal for achieving this mission. Designing software from age 12, he went on to train in advanced technology. His expertise ranges from artificial intelligence and predictive systems to enterprise and cloud computing and security.
He understands the IT and security worlds from the inside out. His roles have included: a managing consultant for Microsoft, a CTO for WebMD, a consultant on agent technology for Intel (during the Pentium chip rollout), and CEO of Group Espada (special operations and tactics, counter-terrorism programs for military and law enforcement).
