About Tetra Defense: 

Tetra Defense began with one goal in mind: To simplify what’s complicated. We launched our Incident Response & Digital Forensics (DFIR) organization in 2016 to restore businesses during and after complex challenges like ransomware attacks, business email compromise, and insider threats. 

As our organization has grown, so has our service offering. We value protection from all sides, leveraging our skilled DFIR team to inform our Cyber Risk Management, Cyber Defense Operations, and Software Development Team. We provide valuable, straightforward guidance for businesses to proactively address and improve their cybersecurity posture in accordance with the latest threats, and our latest solutions. 

Through our continued growth and evolution, we have been told that we do things differently — that we tackle the most difficult tasks in stride, and that we stop at nothing to do what’s best for our clients. We are diligent. We are innovative. We are Tetra. 

In February of 2022, Tetra Defense was acquired by Arctic Wolf in their joined mission to end cyber risk. Arctic Wolf is a leading security operations firm that provides Managed Detection and Response, Cloud Detection Response, Managed Risk, and Managed Security Awareness client solutions. The same Tetra team continues to support our clients, and by joining forces with Arctic Wolf, we significantly enhance our capabilities and accelerate the delivery of security operations — now on a global scale.
