Salt is necessary to life – it’s in every cell of the human body. Salt was so valuable in ancient times that workers were often paid in it. We believe that cybersecurity is that way too. Both necessary and valuable.

Salt Cybersecurity was built on the principle that all organizations deserve to be protected from the dangers of today’s cyber world. Developed from experience working with the largest enterprises, Salt Cybersecurity sifted through the multitude of security products and services, determined what was most important and effective, and created a solution to help all organizations protect themselves.

The SaltCISO Solution can manage your entire cybersecurity program, from creating policies to conducting assessments to interfacing with the board.

Leverage our expertise so you can focus on yours.
