Meet Bolster

We focus on tough universal problems that impact all of the world’s largest brands.

Bolster was founded by security researchers with the mission of making the internet a safer place. The founders have a deep background in threat intelligence, leading teams at Cisco Talos prior to Bolster’s inception.

Backed by some of the top cybersecurity investors in the Silicon Valley, Bolster stays dedicated to their mission to protect organizations of all sizes from phishing attacks, scam content, impersonations, and any other threat to their online business.

The Beginning

How bolster was started

What started as a simple idea from the minds of two Cisco engineers is now one of the most innovative cyber risk detection and takedown platforms on the market. Bolster was launched in 2017 when our co-founders Shashi Prakash and Abhishek Dubey identified the need for effective, business-focused digital risk protection, and took action to see their idea become a reality. Now with over 100 customers, and offices around the world, Bolster is changing the way businesses combat fraud, phishing, and brand impersonation attacks.

Bolster is one of the few security products where we get immediate visibility of counterfeit websites and more importantly, immediate response for takedowns. Their reporting and customer support are simply the best!

This product pays for itself. It was honestly the easiest and quickest renewal that I had this year because when you put pen to paper on Bolster’s ROI, it’s just a no brainer.

Bolster is very good. Domain security is a real thing and with Bolster, it definitely opened our eyes to anything that comes up. Now we know how much the attackers can do with certain information and simply track registered domains mimicking our brand.

I really like how Bolster uses their image recognition to detect phishing sites. They are amazing at surfacing threat intelligence, so that we can prioritize threats and take the right corrective action. On top of the technology, they offer a great customer support experience.

My favorite thing about Bolster - I don't have to do a thing. No diverted employee time; no new hires; no setup; no admin. Plus there's full visibility into results and impact.
