OnDefend Company Newsletter: Creating a Culture of Understanding and Solutions

Have you ever heard the phrase, the days are long but the months are short? That is the only way I know how to describe the first few months of 2023. Between launching a new set of featured services, rolling out more BlindSPOT updates, and keeping up with the news, it has been a rollercoaster for our company. Which is why we are launching this newsletter, to keep everyone up to date with what’s going on with OnDefend and the latest cybersecurity trends. So, before I bore you to death with anymore long winded metaphors, let’s go ahead and get started.

Better Together

OnDefend is proud to call ourselves a partner first company. While we can’t name every company who private-labels our services we are excited to announce some recent partnerships, including PlexTrac. Check out our most recent webinar with PlexTrac CEO Dan Decloss & OnDefend CTO Ben Finke.

Threat- Informed Pentest

Are you limiting yourself to a traditional pentest? Traditional pentests are great but they don’t always answer leaderships question “are we prepared for this specific threat actor that we read about in the news? TIP solves that problem.

OnDefend In The News

It is always an honor to be recognized for achievements within your community. From being recognized for growth in the tech sector to Inno On Fire, there has been plenty of reasons to celebrate our companies success. Personally, I love the fact that one publication used our CEO’s picture and made him look like a character out of the hunger games.
