Critical Start is a dedicated security company with the goal to cost effectively improve the security capabilities of our customers.  While focused on security services, we also resell a limited set of security products.

We tend to deeply engage with our clients and seek to understand their long term security strategy.  With an understanding of a client’s current security posture and long term strategy, we are in a great position to help them improve their security capability.  We take a framework approach to security called the Defendable Network that influences everything we do. While we do sell various 3rd party security products, we are NOT a vendor management company.
