Qadium creates and organizes knowledge about the world's devices.
We continually index all devices connected to the public Internet. Our global platform enables organizations to:
· Understand their networks and how they relate to the broader world
· Discover relevant changes across the global Internet
· Make informed decisions with quantified network measurements
Expander provides global Internet sensing results relevant to your organization. Investigate how your networks change, and receive near real-time alerts, all in a common web browser.
No hardware install. No software install. No behind-the-firewall access required.
Help Us Build Something New
Qadium provides global Internet sensing for industry leaders in financial services, auditing & consulting, retail, healthcare, defense, and insurance.
We also work with several US Government agencies. All of our work is defensive for critical infrastructure protection, and helping US service members avoid operational security risks.
Qadium does not, has not, and will not support offensive cyber operations or provide bulk Internet sensing data to any government.
Qadium was founded in 2012. We were seeded by the Pentagon’s blue-sky research arm, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to prototype next-generation data and network analysis technologies. In its early R&D work, Qadium invented aspects of its relationship-based search engine, global sensing platform, and associated analytic modules.
The co-founders of Qadium met while working together as technical consultants on a special project at DARPA’s headquarters. We have since grown from a small group of algorithms experts into an enterprise software company focused on Internet sensing products. Qadium is now backed by top Silicon Valley venture capitalists, including Peter Thiel (Founders Fund) and Scott Sandell (NEA), and a rapidly growing network of commercial customers and partners.
Mission & Vision
We create and organize knowledge about the world’s devices. Major Internet search companies focus on scraping web content, facilitating keyword search across that content, and monetizing ad revenue. Those tools only solve part of the problem of understanding the global Internet and making better decisions related to information technology. Machine-to-machine communication – what Qadium calls the “device layer” of the Internet – comprises a similar proportion of Internet traffic as the web. However, until now, this part of the Internet has only been monetized by selling products and connecting them to each other.
Qadium is the first company to build a technology and product to solve the problems of generating data and knowledge about the device layer of the Internet. Previous approaches to try to understand relationships between devices have been expensive, labor-intensive, and incomplete. With our platform, large enterprises and government agencies can understand relationships between devices at Internet scale, both within their networks and outside of their known IP space. Qadium is pursuing the addressable market of all IT transactions involving asset management or network security.

Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Site are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
10. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
a) Governing Law.
You agree that: (i) the Site shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Site shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Clara County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Company. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Company has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Company agree otherwise. If you are using the Site for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Site for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Company from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
c) Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver.
With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the site for personal, commercial or other purposes, all Claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Company without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
b) Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement.
c) Entire Agreement/Severability.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Site, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Site. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
d) No Waiver.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Company’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
e) California Residents.
The provider of services is:
85 2nd Street, 8th Floor
San Francisco, CA 94105
If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Sites of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112 Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210 or (916) 445-1254.
