With more than 20 years of industry experience, Blenkhorn joins CyCognito at a time of record growth and market momentum. As CCO, Sean will be responsible for the customer journey from pre-sales to post-sales.

We welcome Sean with open arms and look forward to a fruitful partnership.”

Sean’s experience in the cybersecurity industry spans more than two decades, leading teams across go-to-market, including sales engineering, customer experience, product, and consulting services.

“As threats continue to emerge and attackers get smarter, the need for comprehensive asset visibility, discovery and prioritization becomes increasingly critical,” said Blenkhorn. “Customers choose CyCognito because it transcends traditional vulnerability scanning, offering a broad framework for identifying, evaluating, and securing an organization’s publicly exposed cloud and web-facing assets. The company’s market leadership and exponential growth is a testament to the value customers derive.”
