Company Details


Independent IT Audit and Compliance Leadership

Founded in 2001, Coalfire is a fast-growing IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (IT GRC) firm, serving as a trusted advisor and IT GRC tools-provider to security-conscious leaders in Retail, Financial Services, Healthcare, Hospitality, Higher Education, Government and Utilities. We help our clients recognize and control IT-related risks and maintain compliance with all major industry and government standards.

We’ve been in the IT security business for as long as it has existed. One of our first clients was a major credit card processor that was compromised by a major cyber attack. We investigated the breach, uncovered the root causes and helped create a controls program that protects our client to this day. More importantly, that firm is now a recognized leader among its peers and continues to successfully protect itself against increasingly sophisticated (and daily) attacks.

Today, Coalfire serves thousands of clients across North America, with offices in Dallas, Denver, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. Soon, we'll open offices in Atlanta and Chicago. We are privately-held by our co-founders and a small group of outside investors, which now includes Baird Venture Partners. We're growing rapidly, hiring additional talent, and investing in Navis, Coalfire’s cloud-based compliance management solution.
