Meet Me at the EXPO: Greg Edwards, WatchPoint Data

Did you know that 4,000 businesses are hit by ransomware attacks every day? Did you also know that there is a Corridor-based entrepreneur who is doing something about that? Meet Greg Edwards, Founder & CEO of WatchPoint Data in the Entrepreneur Showcase at Innovation EXPO on Tuesday, Sept. 19th at the Coralville Marriott.

Edwards is a serial entrepreneur who had successfully launched, scaled and sold Axis Backup (in the data backup/recovery business) when he realized the need for a cyber security solution to address the growing problem of ransomware. He launched WatchPoint Data in 2015 as a cutting edge cyber security business to protect small to medium-sized businesses from ever increasing ransomware threats. WatchPoint has created Cryptostopper, a proven ransomware detection software to stop actively running ransomware infections on Windows workstations and servers. Stop by WatchPoint’s booth at Innovation EXPO and find out how you can protect your valuable data from malicious ransomware attacks!

“We are looking forward to participating in this year’s Innovation EXPO,” Edwards said. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our business and capabilities, and at that same time, meet potential partners and advocates to help expand our reach. We’ve participated in the EXPO several times and it really is a must-attend event.”
