Let’s build a resilient internet
We are a group of optimists dedicated to the idea that it takes as much creativity to make technology safe as it does to invent it.
Cybersecurity is a fundamental challenge to open societies in the 21st century. To combat this, the security industry needs to embrace pragmatism, productivity, and interdisciplinary thinking.
If that sounds like your speed, come join us!

We believe security is much more than a moat around a castle. Instead, the internet can be resilient, from inside out.
We're building something special
When a friend hipped me to Material Security early in their development it was heaven sent.
I don't get paid to talk about security products I like. I'm not on any advisory boards. I'm not an investor in any of them. I just like telling other people at *good* security companies that deliver *real* value and stand by their promises. @material_sec is the real deal.
One of the best security products on the market hands down. Easy to implement. Great team to work with. Get it and stop worrying about retention and compromise. Material Security FTW.
Really excited for what Ryan Noon and the team are up to over at Material Security. Email has become the center of so much of our digital lives and the blast radius of even a single email account compromise is one of those things that has always kept me up at night. "Zero Trust" for email is long overdue.
I have been ruminating on the Hafnium exchange exploit and my strongest defensive thesis is on @material_sec.
I am so bullish on their product for meaningfully derisking and detecting mailbox abuse.
“Fundraises are just a milestone: the future is built by people, not capital.” Like I needed another reason to love the folks @ @material_sec
If you haven’t checked out their stuff, you should.
If you're buying software, make sure the vendor's just as committed in the ecosystem they're building in as you are.
[Material] tests stuff in-house (dogfood), they aren't shared-tenant (one customer gets hacked, they all get hacked), the anti-phishing rules worked great, the security posture stuff was better than any other vendor I assessed for Google Workspace - and they have a bunch of features like Slack integration out-of-the-box (_I know_, the fact I list that as a feature tells you how undeveloped some areas of this industry is).
But the game-changer for me was the data protection features. It went through your email history, found potentially confidential and sensitive content like invoices to clients, passwords (hopefully not) and credentials, or stuff that gets flagged by #DLP rules (all of which you can customise for your organisation) - and puts the content behind an unlock screen which integrates with your chosen auth method.
Now a business email compromise (#BEC) is isolated to content from the last few hours, not years. 🔒
If you're a Google -first org, this is a no-brainer. They also take those 4-hour high/critical alert SLA's natively supported by Google's security centre for phishing emails down to seconds.
well this is well-deserved and coming from one of the best investors in the business with Trae Stephens, is a double sign of validation. every customer of material i know loves the technology (myself included). congrats to Ryan Noon Abhishek Agrawal Kevin Bayly and Rajan Kapoor on an incredible milestone.
It shouldn't be a surprise that the creative minds at @material_sec have just landed such a fantastic Series C. Congrats to the team! I can't wait to see you all cross the finish line together! 🏆 #winningteam
