About UpGuard Stock

UpGuard's proprietary technology tests an organization's IT infrastructure both internally and externally and calculates the potential risk for future intrusions and outages. Upon evaluating the ongoing configuration state of every server and network device, companies are given an easy-to-understand score called CSTAR — a single number which indicates to IT staff as well as their executives their risk level for data breaches. An organization's CSTAR score can even be used by corporate insurers in creating a cybersecurity insurance policy. Thousands of companies, including ADP, E*TRADE and Cisco Systems, use UpGuard to validate infrastructure, continuously detect risks and procure cybersecurity insurance. UpGuard is headquartered in Mountain View, CA with offices in Portland, OR. To see how UpGuard works, or to get your CSTAR rating, visit www.upguard.com.
