A bit of history

Want to know a little about us? In 1998, CEO Brad Caldwell recognized the need for affordable data security for the masses after his company's website was hacked. At the time, the only organization qualified to help his business through the damaging compromise was extremely expensive. Caldwell realized small organizations not only need affordable forensic investigations, but also simple tools to protect them from hacks in the first place.

Since its founding in 2000, privately-held SecurityMetrics has grown from a small security company specializing in vulnerability assessment scans to a global leader of data security and compliance solutions with over 300 employees. Today headquartered in Orem, Utah, SecurityMetrics continues to provide the expert services Caldwell so desperately needed to small and large organizations around the world.
