Tracepoint, a Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) company, was selected as Cyber Startup of the Year by the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) at the 6th annual Capital Cybersecurity Summit & Capital Cyber Awards.
NVTC’s Capital Cyber Awards celebrate the Washington metro area’s best companies and individuals in cybersecurity, and winners are selected based on their exceptional dedication, vision, innovation, and contribution to the greater region’s cybersecurity industry.
Co-founded in December 2019 by Chris Salsberry, Brett Anderson, and Rob Driscoll and based in Fredericksburg, Va., Tracepoint is a recognized leader in Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), remediation, and cyber risk and resilience management. Tracepoint partners with cyber insurance carriers, lawyers, brokers, and their clients respond to cyber incidents, delivering advanced cyber defense solutions to help clients defend against a growing number of debilitating cyber threats.
“I’m exceptionally proud of our team, the relationships they forge with clients and quality of work we deliver against the most significant cyberattacks,” said Chris Salsberry, Tracepoint’s chief executive officer.
In September 2021, Booz Allen announced that it completed the acquisition of Tracepoint after making an initial strategic investment in December 2020. Booz Allen’s cybersecurity portfolio includes many Fortune 100 and Global 2000 clients, as well as nearly every U.S. defense and federal agency, and the firm’s commercial business delivers advanced cyber services for clients across multiple industries, including financial services, health and life sciences, energy, transportation, and manufacturing.
“Under Chris Salsberry’s leadership, Tracepoint grew quickly to become a DFIR market leader, and I’m thrilled that the NVTC has recognized Tracepoint’s accomplishments,” said Bill Phelps, executive vice president and leader of Booz Allen’s commercial business. “Tracepoint is a key component to our long-term plans and this recognition today from the NVTC only reaffirms my excitement about the company today and what we can accomplish together in the future.”
