About Us

Founded in 2012, Cutting Edge CA is a cyber security and network engineering start-up.  We focus on protecting customer activities on the Internet and providing them with cyber threat mitigation capabilities.  Our management team has extensive experience in enabling Intelligence Community missions and applying those capabilities to the cyber security needs of our commercial customers.  NetAbstraction, our flagship offering, is a patented, cloud-based service that obscures and varies our customer’s network pathways across multiple providers to protect their identity, sensitive data, and critical systems. NetAbstraction can be used to protect networks, communications, applications, and data between the Enterprise, the Internet, and the cloud.  NetAbstraction lowers our customer’s cyber attack profile and traceability.

NetAbstraction also enables cyber threat management and mitigation such as:

  • Cyber threat research, including access to the dark web
  • Malware Analysis
  • Penetration Testing/Red teaming
  • Establishment of emergency communications networks in the event of natural disasters or cyber incidents
  • Incident response, mitigation, and attack attribution identification.

Building from a deep understanding of the current state of the art technologies, we are innovating and providing the next generation of privacy and identity protection capabilities while understanding, first hand, the challenges our customers face when meeting today’s cyber and privacy needs.

We are thrilled to announce that we are a recent graduate of the 2017 Fintech Innovation Lab!
