SpecTrust defends innovative fintech companies and consumer marketplaces from cybercrime threats. Our no-code platform allows our clients to instantly inspect and protect every step of a customer’s journey, allowing them to get ahead and stay ahead of fraudsters, scammers, and identity thieves that hide amongst good user traffic. We’re backed by venture capital firms like SignalFire, Rally Ventures, CyberMentorFund, Dreamit Ventures, and several successful cybersecurity founders.

Why SpecTrust?

SpecTrust is a small, venture-backed startup with a vision to provide a first-of-its-kind cybercrime defense tool to the tens of thousands of fraud professionals around the world, all of whom are fighting an invisible war against crime rings, state actors, and fraud opportunists. Today, these corporate and public cyberfighters are cobbling together makeshift tools and struggling to align their broader organization in the fight against fraud. Instead of taking down threats, they measure success on how much they’ve lost. Our founders have lived this and we know it has to change, and you could be a part of it.
