It’s time for Invest Augusta 2018.

Every year we showcase the best cyber-related startup companies that the United States has to offer.

This year’s presenting companies are simply outstanding:

  • Authomate
  • WitFoo
  • iTrust
  • FraudMarc
  • Qoor



Authomate makes stronger security easier to use by shifting the burden of authentication from a human’s memory to their smartphone. We simplify the user experience by allowing a smartphone in proximity to an application, system, website or device to seamlessly authenticate the user, eliminating the need to enter user names, passwords and one-time codes.

Key features: enablement of multi-factor authentication using contextually aware, dynamic factors; ability to share access without sharing credentials; ability to interface with VPNs and other non-web based applications that require credential input (including login for Macs and PCs); geo-fencing and geo-tagging; date and time restrictions; biometrics; defense against phishing sites; and robust logging of access.

CEO: Jeffrey Schmidt





WitFoo builds software that allows Cyber Security Operations to function effectively. The software suite is called Precinct. It 1) processes all cyber security information in an organization 2) coordinates the investigative workflows and 3) provides business metrics that detail risk, efficiency and gaps in the security practice.
