We're on an important mission


We started our journey after years spent building scalable enterprise software and cybersecurity products at RSA, EMC, IBM, and Microsoft. At Inside-Out Defense, we're on a mission to protect organizations against the number one threat vector, Privilege Abuse. We are taking a different approach to security. No, we aren't building yet another security product that cries wolf, slowing your organizations down with unnecessary alerts, but one with a more proactive, real-time remediation.
Our vision is to solve a critical set of Privilege Abuse related problems improving the lives of the security teams while securing the enterprise from the next access-related breach.
Managing an organization's entitlements is messy and almost impossible. Inside-Out Defense is a privilege governance platform built for the continuous validation of trust. We make it possible to govern access privilege in real-time across your multi and hybrid environments.
We're proud to be backed by prominent Silicon Valley investors.
Our platform solves critical access abuse scenarios protecting the organization from Privilege Abuse from outside and inside the organization.
