Our Commitment

Our corporate commitment is to “Break the Cycle”. 

We find the cybersecurity industry is too often focused on “running a tool'' or “completing a checklist” - routinely marketing a ‘silver bullet’ solution for the latest cybersecurity fad.

At BreakPoint Labs, to “Break the Cycle” means to:

  • Deliver value as a mission partner, regardless of the new flashy tool or latest buzzwords in the industry
  • Adopt an attacker’s mindset to think creatively and understand how technology may enable - or hinder - a specific mission
  • Go beyond automated testing techniques found in commercial tools
  • Never, ever be a “butts in seats” services provider

In other words, we’re on a relentless pursuit to perform at the highest standards, and deliver impactful, lasting improvements to our clients’ security posture. BreakPoint Labs has demonstrated an ability to earn and maintain a trusted relationship with clients and partners by making their mission objectives synonymous with our priorities.
