CEO of Plano’s Critical Start Discusses International Expansion and More

February 13, 2023

Our CEO Rob Davis sat down with the Dallas Business Journal to discuss Critical Start’s beginnings, new international expansion, and thrilling things to come in the cybersecurity industry.

After seeing numerous cyberattacks on business and government organizations while holding various leadership roles at a previous network security company, Davis created Critical Start in 2011. Since then, we have gone from a startup in 3,000 square foot office space to one of the fastest-growing private companies in North Texas in 2022. Not only will we add headcount over the next several years to continue to bring value to our customers who use our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, but we are also growing globally with a new location in Pune, India.

When asked what opportunity he is most excited about for Critical Start, Davis responded:

“I’m incredibly excited about how the cybersecurity market is transforming from buying products and services to a focus on outcomes that impact the business. The cybersecurity market is making a transition to customers wanting to purchase the outcome of reducing the risk of a cybersecurity breach.”
