We build and provide tools, technology and services that allow organizations of all sizes to measurably improve their cyber security knowledge, experience and operations, saving them time, money and lots of unnecessary frustration.

VisionWhere We’re Going

We enable our customers to improve their cyber security operations with better technology, operational processes, and human capability.  This end-to-end approach allows our customers to create stronger networks, more responsive processes, and highly confident teams that are resilient in the face of modern IT and cyber security threats.

ValuesWhat We Believe

Cyber Security tools need to be both effective and usable. Tools and Services that offer complicated or difficult user experiences won’t result in improved network and system security. By respecting the needs and realities of our clients, our ecosystem will raise the ‘cyber security floor’ of the organizations we support.


In our products, deployments and operations, simplicity is king. We believe workflows should be easy to understand and that tools should be intuitive. In fact, just minutes after setup, you’ll look like a pro.


Growing shouldn’t be painful. As you require more data, more speed, more analytics and more integrations, we’re ready to support you.


We don’t pretend to understand the internal business requirements and setup of all our clients. Everything we build, we build to be modular, easily integrated and flexible. There are no silver bullets or all-in-one solutions in IT, especially in the world of security. You need to be able to adapt. Now you can.


Security is at the core of our business, and nobody does it better. “Raising the collective security floor” has long been a mantra at Field Effect Software and it guides every decision we make.
