Q&A With Drivestrike by Spearstone

Safety Detectives: Please share your company background, how you got started, and your mission.

Drivestrike: Spearstone began developing and delivering software solutions in 2005. We patented the first continuous data protection SaaS model, and have launched dozens of successful products for multiple Fortune 500 companies.

While we have developed a variety of solutions in every sector, our main focus has always been security. Our mission is simple: high-quality digital security solutions that scale seamlessly. This is the kind of industry where every second matters. Excellent security means effective and easy-to-use software, readily available support, and continuous innovation to meet changing needs.

SD: What is the main service your company offers?

Drivestrike: DriveStrike is our primary product offering, which launched in 2018. DriveStrike is an endpoint protection and mobile device management solution focused on key security features:

  • Remote Wipe – Delete confidential data from any lost or stolen device.
  • Remote Lock – Lock or reboot a machine to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Geolocation – Locate any device to help in deciding what next steps to take.
  • Encryption – Manage encryption keys in a secure vault.

DriveStrike is designed to enable administrators to act fast to prevent a data breach when a company device is missing. DriveStrike is available on all major platforms, with integrated support for Android policy configuration, as well as Windows BitLocker encryption.

SD: What is something unique that helps you stay ahead of your competition?

Drivestrike: One of the many things that set us apart is how accessible our product is for every size organization. Everything about DriveStrike—functionality, pricing, support—is geared toward ensuring user success. Small businesses need security just as much as large enterprises, though they often do not have the same budget for cybersecurity products and personnel. DriveStrike is easy to use and extremely affordable and does not discriminate in providing quality support, bringing excellent security to anyone who needs it.

SD: What do you think are the worst cyberthreats today?

Drivestrike: The worst cyber threats are not necessarily a type of threat, rather the ingenuity and persistence with which malicious actors operate. Because of this, any gap in your security posture could lead to a breach and is, therefore, a cause for concern. Currently, it seems the most common gaps are originating with remote work and hybrid work environments. Companies are struggling to even recognize where new gaps are, which leaves them open for exploitation. For example, unsecure home or public Wi-Fi and lax physical device security are common problems that might not be properly addressed or enforced. Also, the mindset that a data breach “won’t happen to me” is dangerous, and likely untrue if this is what governs your device and data security procedures. Recognizing areas of weakness is the first step to fixing them.
