10+ Years Finding Security Solutions.

Upstart Cyber was founded by Nigero Vargas and Burke Adams, cybersecurity enthusiasts who shared the same vision on how to provide better security to companies. They’ve been working together solving some of the biggest security problems for governments and militaries, banks, hospitals, and some of the largest companies worldwide. Now, we’re giving small businesses access to that same high-quality security.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my type of business in a high risk category?

Any business that transacts electronically, contains information about customers, or relies on the use of networks to function day to day is at risk. Your risk is determined more by your protection or lack thereof than it is your industry.

Why would hackers target us if we’re a small business?

The most sophisticated cyber attackers will target big business and big money, but after the first time and once these methods become known, far less sophisticated hackers will replicate these attacks on any business who allows themselves to be a soft target.

How can I afford cybersecurity services?

Maintaining an in-house security team can be expensive and out of reach for many small businesses, where having even one full time person on staff may not fill a work week for a security professional. Upstart can provide whatever fraction of a security professional you need at a comparable fraction of the cost, with the added benefit of having a team with a wide array of security specialties.

Why can’t I use free cybersecurity?

Many out of the box products will underline how secure they are with zero effort, but new threats are being introduced regularly. Cybersecurity requires knowledge and upkeep. Potential cyber attackers are putting in the time and effort to find ways around these common concepts, and you will need to do the same to combat them.

What is ransomware?

Ransomware is encryption of and loss of access to data which you rely on to perform your business functions, where the attacker will release to you on payment, essentially selling you back what already belonged to you. Encrypting data is a simple process, what we need to do is prevent an attacker from gaining access to it in the first place.

What is the best way to protect myself from hackers?

Make yourself a harder target by educating your employees and other users on social engineering attacks, securing yourself from known vulnerabilities today and in the future through consistent upkeep, and constantly monitoring for suspicious events.

How much does a cybersecurity solution cost?

Cybersecurity is a widely varied and highly complex subject. Even with a limitless budget covering every vulnerability would be a challenge. Upstart can work within your budget, helping you prioritize and optimize your security, while perhaps more importantly helping you understanding the threat vectors that remain so that you can make intelligent operational decisions going forward.
