About Syncurity

We Synchronize Your Incident Response Team, Tools, and Playbook in a Virtual SOC

Our Company

Syncurity™  optimizes and integrates people, process and technology to realize better cybersecurity outcomes and accelerate your security operations teams by delivering an agile incident response platform. 

We make your security operations center (SOC) more powerful by delivering a fully-realized incident response platform that can be delivered and made operational today. We accelerate your people by giving them tightly integrated incident response workflow solutions that speed response and clarify operational process.  We understand that your SOC is a business. Our incident response solutions are designed to deploy rapidly and calibrate smoothly to create immediate operational value.

Our Beliefs

1. Customer First

SOCs face dynamic and persistent threats 24×7. We understand your focus needs to be on defeating the adversary, not on our product. Our technology is designed to create immediate value by deploying initial capability in hours. Our customer success program ensures every customer gains value from their investment, immediately and rapidly.

2. Technology Enables Team

We believe that a SOC’s most important asset is its team, not its technology. This belief is at the heart of our company. We provide an incident response platform that makes average analysts better, and good analysts great. Contrary to recent marketing hype, the magic is not in full incident response automation; the magic comes from enabling team collaboration on a foundation of repeatable incident response workflows.

3. Collaborative Reusable Processes

We believe that coordinated, useful action produces better security. This is why we developed IR-Flow, a collaborative incident response platform that enables teams to work smarter and faster by leveraging reusable workflows and automated enrichment. IR-Flow speeds your response, reduces analyst fatigue and creates better security outcomes.

Syncurity Helps Security Operations and Incident Response Leaders Respond Faster and
Realize Greater Value for Their Investments in Infrastructure and Personnel.

Allows Analysts to Create Consistent, Repeatable Workflows.

Where We Come From

Starting a company is like any adventure. Whether you’re climbing a mountain or riding a bike across the United States, you need  passion, commitment, and total ownership of the days, both good and bad. Technology can make things easier, but ultimately it’s the people doing the work that make the difference.

Syncurity’s founder, JP Bourget,  saw evidence of these facts while working security consulting engagements around the globe. Everywhere he went, there were SOCs filled with great people that were struggling to succeed. They had the passion, the commitment, and the ability to own problems, but they were constantly being undermined by poor tools, scattershot procedures and overwhelming threat volumes.

This discovery gave birth to the idea behind Syncurity and their first product, IR-Flow.  JP and his team knew if they could standardize incident response; remove unnecessary, repetitive tasks; and provide consistent, reusable workflows, then they could make organizations safer and improve cybersecurity efforts.

With this mission in mind, Syncurity formed in early 2014. By August of the same year, they were selected by MACH37™, America’s premier market-centric cybersecurity accelerator as a member of the Fall 2014 cohort. Less than a year later, Syncurity had launched IR-Flow, an incident response platform, and signed their first Fortune-500 customer.
