The Salesforce of Cybersecurity

Salesforce.com is the largest, most widely used CRM company in the world. It has fundamentally changed the way organizations sell, market and manage their customers. By replacing painful, expensive, and labor-intensive methods with intuitive tools and dashboards, Salesforce provides unprecedented organization, visibility and control. It’s time for cybersecurity to make a similar big leap.

Cybersecurity Is Hard

Let's face it, building, managing and reporting a cybersecurity program as a SaaS company is challenging. The threat landscape is constantly changing, and every SaaS company big and small is being audited on cybersecurity by their prospects and customers. There are too many vendors with point solutions you’re trying to manage. And, there is a shortage of affordable security talent to help you reach your goals.
