A passionate team providing a fresh look at what defence means for IT security.

One day in Dolores Park with the sun on our backs, David said "It's time we started a company. It's time we made a tool that investigates rather than defends". We agreed. And CounterCraft was born.

With over 15 years of experience in IT security, each, we left our previous companies to form CounterCraft in 2015. We bring a broad skill-set to the table covering important and differentiated areas from product design and architecture to sales and marketing. We created CounterCraft to solve the problems associated with Counter-Intelligence campaigns, in the digital realm. Campaigns are time consuming to design, complex to deploy and maintain. Monitoring them can be a difficult if not impossible task. It is difficult to evaluate the success of a campaign and deliver useful intelligence as an output. CounterCraft tackles the traditional problems of deploying deception based campaigns head on.
