Secureling: Simplifying Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

This is the founder story for Secureling and why Raj, Rob and Steve decided it was time to build a security solution for small to mid-size businesses.

In today’s digital age, the significance of cybersecurity can’t be understated. Yet, a substantial gap persists – cybersecurity for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Often the most vulnerable to cyberattacks, these businesses typically lack the resources to establish and sustain an effective security program. That’s exactly where we, the team behind Secureling, step in – striving to democratize cybersecurity, making it accessible and straightforward for everyone.

Why We Started Secureling

Over the years, we’ve worked together on various projects, each of us bringing a unique professional background in security leadership, software development, sales, and product design. Our journey towards Secureling was ignited by recurring inquiries from friends and colleagues: “How can small businesses effectively launch and manage their cybersecurity programs?”

In our quest to answer this question, we confronted a glaring truth. SMEs, critical cogs in our economy, grapple with security challenges typically reserved for large corporations. In the vast, often daunting realm of cybersecurity, SMEs were left to fend for themselves.

Fueled by a shared vision and mutual respect, we recognized it was time to bridge this gap. Secureling was born, not merely as a tool, but as a beacon of hope for organizations of all sizes. Our mission with Secureling is to empower businesses to cultivate tailored security programs without the necessity for expert skills or costly external assistance.

Our work extends beyond just crafting a product; it’s about fostering a culture of safety and trust in a world where uncertainty looms large. Secureling is our initiative to instill an enduring culture of cybersecurity.

Challenges and the Secureling Solution

The cybersecurity industry has traditionally catered to large enterprises. Small businesses seeking certifications such as ISO or SOC2 often found themselves shelling out substantial sums for consulting firms, only to be left with a report and zero progression. We at Secureling are rewriting this narrative by driving action. By answering a few simple questions, businesses receive tailored recommendations and a roadmap to start building their security program.

Much like personal health requires consistency and discipline, cybersecurity is no different. Secureling helps to weave security hygiene into the organizational fabric, reminding employees of their role in keeping the company safe.

Milestones and Vision

Currently, Secureling’s software is being piloted with a diverse range of organizations. From Managed Service Providers (MSPs) protecting their clients, to small businesses recognizing the importance of security, the feedback has been unanimous – Secureling integrates safety into the organizational structure, ensuring security procedures are initiated, sustained, and reviewed.

By 2028, we aim to have helped over 100,000 SMEs build their security programs. Our vision is to partner with cybersecurity organizations, associations, and public institutions worldwide, collectively working towards a safer and secure cyber world.

Secureling is more than just a product; it’s a shared vision and a testament to our unyielding commitment to making advanced cybersecurity simple and accessible to all businesses, regardless of size. By simplifying security, Secureling equips businesses with the tools they need to fortify themselves in the digital age.
