The Trust Guard Story

Trust Guard started in 2006, helping companies Build Trust and Make More Sales. Our founders Dave
and Scott Brandley have worked hard to help make the world a little bit more trust worthy, through Third Party
Verification and later through website Security Scanning. But most of all, we couldn’t have done it without all the
amazing businesses and people that have helped us grow over this last decade. For that we owe you all a huge
thanks, and hope that you keep pushing us to be the best we can be.

Here’s our story
