Abstract Security

Abstract Security is building a cyber analytics platform that allows enterprise customers to detect and stop data breaches. Abstract’s data management helps teams optimize data without compromising on compliance or security effectiveness, providing teams immediate cost-savings on storage, faster detection, and powerful analytics capabilities.

When industry experts Colby DeRodeff, Ryan Clough, and Aaron Shelmire leveraged their extensive experience in enterprise security, the trio identified a significant gap in the market. They observed enterprise security teams investing millions of dollars into logging and analytic products, only to receive minimal value in return. Convinced that there was a more efficient and effective approach to address these challenges, the co-founders decided to redefine the standards of enterprise security software and offer solutions that deliver real value to their clients.
