We are Illumin8

Making cyber security simple and affordable for everyone

Illumin8 is a dynamic tech startup on a mission to make cyber security simple and affordable for everyone.

Cyber Security is rapidly becoming the next big disruptive space for organizations facing strict regulations to protect confidential data. As tech entrepreneurs, we have been in this space for more than 20 years.

We are fast, focused, agile, and adaptive, creating products and services today to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

Core Beliefs

Integrity is Everything

Integrity is fundamental. We only recommend products and services that are the best fit for your enterprise. If our products are not the best fit for you, we won’t recommend them.

Data Drives Solutions

Intuition will only get you so far. Effective vulnerability and risk management is foundational to your organization’s security. We make data-based decisions about which solutions are the best fit for you.

Be Vigilant, Always

Threats and vulnerabilities change every day, so must your defences. Continuous monitoring with threat intelligence is the best way to protect your assets.

Take Responsibility

Although security is a responsibility of the whole organization, your IT team is not ultimately responsible for a data breach. That honor belongs to the CEO, CIO, CISO and Board.

Empower People

Cyber Security is not just an IT issue. The reality is that most breaches can be traced back to human error. You must empower all people in your organization to avoid and respond to cyber threats.

Know Your Risks

Chances are, your organization is-being, has-been or will-be hacked. This has to be your operating belief to establish a solid defense.

“I am convinced that there are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be. And even they are converging into one category: companies that have been hacked and will be hacked again.”

– Robert S. Mueller III, Director FBI

What Makes Us Different?

We Make it Simple

There is a lot of inherent complexity in cyber security. At Illumin8, our goal is to make it simple for you. We shine a light on vulnerabilities, transform data into insight, and empower your team to strengthen security. 

We don't overwhelm you with unessential data or industry jargon. Our experts are trained to speak your language and avoid using too many confusing acronyms. All we do is cyber security, and we know how to make it easy for you to understand. 

We Act with Integrity

Trust is at the heart of cyber security. 

We take a proactive, collaborative approach to cyber security, working closely with you to understand your unique risks and challenges. 

While there are many ways to address the same problem, we simply offer well-designed, need-specific solutions and nothing more.

We Are 100% US Based

Many large managed security providers employ teams in India, Ukraine, Russia and the Philippines to keep costs down.

Sharing vulnerability information with low paid analysts in a foreign country puts your network at risk. Plus the laws of foreign countries govern your data, which is why we are a 100% American service provider.

All our servers are located in the United States, and our security consultants and analysts are all US citizens who are located in the USA and speak English.
