The cybersecurity industry is ripe for change

As security engineers, we know that security is a process, not a feature. The best way to build a security posture is to build it on top of transparent controls and infrastructure which can be observed, tested and enhanced. It is not built on promises from vendors which must be taken at face value.

LimaCharlie enables security practitioners to maintain full control of their operations, while equipping them with the professional-grade tools and infrastructure required to keep the world safe.

We’re delivering the core components of cybersecurity, API-first, in a way that’s accessible, scalable, and transparent.
