SecurityStarfish is dedicated to shifting the balance of power on the Internet. Its mission is to take away the advantage from cybercriminals and to place it back into the hands of its enterprise customers. Cybercriminals are well funded, organized and relentless in their pursuit of sensitive, high-value information. SecurityStarfish is helping its clients develop a united and well-organized defensive front that allows them to raise their security posture, defend against cyberattacks, and avoid costly breaches, fines and brand damage.
SecurityStarfish clients receive protection against regulatory backlash through anonymity.
