A Unique Approach to Cybersecurity
Technology will solve all your security problems.
Until it doesn’t.
For years, organizations believed that investing in more technology was the answer to their security challenges. In reality, companies were just adding technology on top of faulty security practices.
Recognizing the fundamental conflict between what organizations needed to address their security challenges and what the industry was telling them they needed, security executive Rob Davis founded CRITICALSTART in 2012 with a simple mission: to protect customers from cybersecurity attacks while reducing their risk.
Today, we continue to protect organizations of all sizes through our award-winning portfolio, which includes our Managed Detection and Response service, best-of-breed technology partners, and professional services.
For many, resources are limited, leaving you vulnerable to new and evolving cyberattacks. Our process helps secure your infrastructure on-premise or in the cloud, meet compliance standards, and reduce your exposure including:
Resolve every alert and stop breaches by investigating every security alert until they are classified as good or normal and can be safely resolved.
Help you identify risks, document the effectiveness of your existing controls and create a roadmap to improve your security posture, including tools assessment, GRC/compliance guidance, adversarial simulation, and penetration testing.
Protect your endpoints and secure your environment, including endpoint security, next-generation firewall, SIEM, cloud security architecture,
V-CISO and vulnerability management.
Reduce your incident response time and minimize the imapct of a breach, including IR and threat hunting.
Culture at CRITICALSTART is very important & everything we do is guided by these core principles:
Do What’s Right for the Customer.
Do What’s Right for our Employees.
