Our Story

At Blacksmith InfoSec, we understand the unique challenges faced by small and medium-sized businesses in protecting their digital assets. Our story began with a clear mission: to democratize cybersecurity and make it accessible for businesses of all sizes.


Our cofounders, Jared Casner and Michael Zbarsky have built numerous security programs, led secure engineering teams, and run compliance programs for start-ups, small, and medium businesses. Collectively, they have helped dozens of companies become SOC2, HIPAA, CMMC, and NIST 800-171 compliant. Just as a blacksmith forges strong, durable defenses, we have crafted a robust cybersecurity solution designed to meet the specific needs of small and medium businesses.


Recognizing the often prohibitive cost of traditional cybersecurity measures for smaller businesses, we created a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that provides an affordable yet comprehensive solution. Our platform equips you with the tools and knowledge needed to establish a robust security program that safeguards your business from cyber threats.


Our focus is to create accessible software that demystifies cybersecurity and puts companies on the path towards a secure future without breaking the bank. Our team of seasoned cybersecurity experts is committed to simplifying the complex world of cybersecurity, ensuring that you can focus on what you do best – running your business.


We pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to the ever-evolving digital landscape. Our SaaS platform is constantly updated with the latest cybersecurity protocols, ensuring that you are always one step ahead of potential threats.
