Greg Edwards

Founder & CEO

Greg has been a technology entrepreneur since 1998. Before Greg founded
CryptoStopper, he started Axis Backup, a backup and disaster recovery company
for the insurance industry. He saw firsthand the rapid increase in the damage cyber
criminals were doing with debilitating malware resulting in high financial loss to
vulnerable companies. Between 2012 and 2015, one in five of Axis Backup’s clients
was hit by cybercrime. Greg realized effective cyber security could save businesses
from costly downtime and compromised systems. In 2015, Axis Backup was
acquired by J2 Global, freeing Greg to create CryptoStopper and focus exclusively
on cybersecurity.
