The Flare Story

Flare was created in 2017 by four friends from an engineering university in Montreal, Canada, with one idea in mind, making sure that every company feels protected against cybercrime. At first, the team found compelling data – useful for banks, the sector where it all began for Flare and started prioritizing to make sure that information was insightful but also actionable.

Today, Flare’s mission is to shed light on the external threats all organizations are facing and enable them to take control of their data. Our goal is that every company should have the ability to protect their data, and in effect, protect their brand, employees, customers, and stakeholders.

What does Flare do?

Our SaaS platform dynamically maps an organization’s digital footprint to reduce risk by enabling rapid remediation of external issues that could otherwise be leveraged by malicious actors.
