Light Point Security’s Vision
Light Point Security was created to help you. The main usage of the internet is also the most dangerous – browsing the web. The traditional method of security just can’t keep up. There are thousands of new threats created everyday by cyber-criminals exploiting flaws in our web browsers. Considering the complexity of web browsers, there will always be new flaws to exploit. There has to be a better way. Light Point Security believes it has that better way.
Light Point Security is based in Baltimore, Maryland.
