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.
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
I really love @material_sec and how easy it makes it to protect our company’s email systems. This morning I saw a phish in my inbox. I flagged it as phishing and instantly the email was defanged and I received this email.
Material Security takes a fresh approach to arguably the greatest information security risk we all have - email. You owe it to yourself to check them out.
Everyone in infosec knows it's rare to see a new product that is obviously a solution instead of a band-aid. Congrats to the @material_sec team for building one of those products.
Super excited to see the growth of non-snake oil security startups. Rare to see new entrants in the space actually improve the state of security with innovative approaches. @material_sec's mission is personal to me.
If you manage corporate IT security and haven't been following Material Security I recommend checking them out. They bring solutions to email problems that felt intractable and I really appreciate their deployment model.
Material Security @material_sec is a great example of how to re-imagine an experience as routine as email. 10x more secure and 10x better: https://material.security/leak-preventionhttps://material.security/phishing-herd-immunity… Congrats @internet_meme, @abhishek0918, and team on a fresh $40M
Seriously go hit up Ryan Noon if your company uses email and you care about security. @material is the kind of tool that seems like it shouldn't work, but it does.
