Bio from Covered Security website:
This isn’t our founders’ first rodeo. Prior to starting Covered, Brian and Chris co-founded and led identity and access management pioneer Courion Corporation. After building it up to 220 people worldwide, $40 million in sales, and tens of millions of users, Courion was acquired and they went off to explore the rest of life. Brian’s the good-natured, Midwestern (is that redundant?) technologist. Chris is the intense, Bostonian business guy. Together they have a knack for delivering innovations that make security easier and faster for everyone.
Having worked in the security industry for over 2 decades, they know just how fragile trust on the Internet is, and how easily organizations can be hacked. Hackers collaborate like crazy, while security teams struggle just to get users to stop clicking on phishing emails. With the explosion of breaches and weaponization of personal info, Brian and Chris decided they needed to jump back into the fray to help bring end users into the battle with hackers, to change the balance of power. And that is just what Covered intends to do!
