Defense Contractors

Don’t lose your government contracts - Stay compliant CyberReconn, helps defense contractors protect their networks so they can meet 92% of all the NIST 171 & 181 requirements the US Government has mandated to bid on federal contracts after 2017. We do this within 7 days of implementation and without you having to spend tens of thousands of dollars per each requirement as it normally does. It only takes less than 20 minutes to set up. Not only do we work with hundreds of defense contractors, one of our services protects and defends the information networks for many Fortune 500 companies in the healthcare, financial, insurance, technology, retail, and E-commerce verticals. The cybersecurity provider we partnered with also holds certifications for ITAR, EAR, CJIS, DOJ, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS. In every instance where we've tested our system at a customer site, we catch active threats on their network! More importantly, it works in the background and protects your company's information systems (and your company’s reputation) no matter what your non-tech savvy users do. The system also provides clients with unlimited incident responses at no extra charge. And, we guarantee to provide 0 false positives. We help clients select solutions that are user foolproof.

Why Us?

You know what's really crazy to us having worked with many CIOs and CISOs over the years is that many of them keep a letter of resignation ready in case there's a company breach. They realize that despite their best efforts, they cannot protect their networks 100%. This is why the solutions we work with are more proactive, and are able to detect behavior based anomalies and unknown threats.

This is also why we founded this company. We don't believe anyone or any company should live in fear or held ransom by digital criminals.

Being business owners, we understand how hard it is to build something from scratch. The struggles, the hard work, the late nights and the sacrifices. That's why it makes us angry when a thief breaks into a business network and causes problems, crashes systems, steals proprietary information, and destroys a business that is the brainchild of another human being. We want to catch these bad people and stop them from sneaking inside and destroying, in one night, what took someone years to build.

We rarely meet a company not interested in moving forward once they see the access and insights they will have in real time once they run a test. Running a test will allow you to discover what your current security provider may not be detecting, and/or cannot detect, with their current systems. And if we're out of sync with your budget for the quarter or fiscal year, no problem. You have nothing to lose by trying out our solution, uncover your current threats, learning what our cybersecurity solution(s) can do for you, and adjusting your next budget cycle.
