We Are Data-Centric Threat Defenders

About Us


We believe that when security professionals can integrate intelligence data into every stage of their workflow, they can make better decisions faster.

TruSTAR was founded in 2014 by a mix of seasoned entrepreneurs, former security and intelligence specialists, and killer product developers. TruSTAR built a platform that operationalizes internal and external data sources through an ecosystem of integrations to help you gain control of your data. 

TruSTAR was acquired by Splunk in June 2021.
