Fortalice Named to 2018 Cybersecurity 500!

Fortalice Solutions is proud to announce that we’ve been included in the 2018 Cybersecurity 500! The Cybersecurity 500 is a global ranking featuring the hottest and most innovative companies in the cybersecurity industry - from household brands to VC-backed product firms and boutique consulting agencies.

"Fortalice Solutions is a hot newcomer to the Cybersecurity 500" says Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-in-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures. "With a CEO that is the former White House CIO, a strong executive team, and some of the top cybercrime fighters, Fortalice should be on the short list for any organization that needs assistance with incident response and digital investigative work."

"Fortalice is honored to be included in this year’s Cybersecurity 500,” says Theresa Payton, CEO and Co-Founder of Fortalice Solutions. “We have doubled in size and revenue over the past year and it’s thrilling to see our team’s innovative spirit and unique approach to solving cybersecurity issues recognized among such an impressive list of colleagues.”

According to Cybersecurity Ventures’ Official 2017-2018 Cybercrime Report, cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world, and per billionaire Warren Buffet, “one of the biggest problems with mankind.”

Further, the report finds that cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015. This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history, risks the incentives for innovation and investment, and will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined.
