Evident.io’s cloud security infrastructure is designed to deliver faster security intelligence to cloud engineers, DevOPS and IT/risk managers, in a friendly, consumable manner
Tim Prendergast and Justin Lundy founded Evident.io in 2013. The company began on a premise that public clouds require a new and agile security and compliance approach. Hence, the founders, who’ve earlier worked with security giants such as Trend Micro and McAfee came together to design a cloud security infrastructure which is easy to install and use, and which delivers fastest security intelligence in a friendly, consumable manner. The company’s flagship product, the Evident Security Platform (ESP) is agent-less, detects and analyses vulnerabilities and risks, and provides a seamless, global view and actionable intelligence required to safeguard a public cloud.
Funded to the tune of US $49.1 million across five rounds, some of Evident.io’s key customers are Adobe, Airbnb, Barclays, CA Technologies, and Capital One.
(Note: Security giant, Palo Alto Networks acquired Evident.io for US $300 million in March 2018.)
