FairWarning Overview

FairWarning is committed to growing trust in an increasingly interconnected world by protecting people from the harm of having their most sensitive data compromised. We partner with our customers to secure private, sensitive information held in mission-critical applications. By partnering, we mean “we listen to our customers carefully; solve the specific problems they are most concerned about by applying our proven expertise, products and services; and take an authentic interest in ensuring our customers receive continual value from our products and services.”
Founded by Kurt Long in 2005, FairWarning has significantly grown year after year and has been the leader in the industry. In May of 2018, FairWarning was purchased by Mainsail Partners, a San Francisco growth equity investment firm focused on the software industry. In August of 2019, FairWarning welcomed our current CEO, Ed Holmes, to the team.

FairWarning strives to protect the health, wealth & personal information of everyone on Earth.
Build information security services that business people find easy to use, pay for themselves many times over and make the lives of everyone involved better.
