Time flies when you’re having fun. On August 4, 2017, We decided to take the leap of faith start Avid Secure. Avid Secure was born out of our shared passion for solving customer’s pain in securing public cloud. In the past year, we have done some incredible things at Avid Secure, and I wanted to take a moment to share them with you.
Cloud has been something that people have been talking about for over a decade—but the shift from on premises solutions to the cloud isn’t easy for organizations. Not only would they have to pick which workloads they’d move and where they’d move them to, but they’d also need to shift their mindsets from traditional software development methodologies to an agile approach. And with cyber threats on the rise, they’d need to figure out how to ensure these workloads would be secured.
Security isn’t easy when it comes to the cloud. It isn’t just a matter of adding new tools, rather figuring out how to implement the processes (e.g. compliance, governance, approvals, audits, etc.) in a way that would be “cloud friendly.” As experts and former security leaders and practitioners, we knew that there really wasn’t an easy answer to securing workloads in the cloud. Here are a couple of reasons why:
We knew there had to be a better way to intelligently and automatically secure, protect and ensure compliance of workloads in the cloud—so we built it.
Avid Secure was built to address the security monitoring, compliance and DevSecOps needs of enterprises. We started by listening to our prospects, partners and first customers, and aligned our product to ensure we’d not only achieve, but exceed their goals and desires. Second, we brought Avid Secure to market—launching our first product and our corporate site.
In our first year, we have added some of the best customers and partners to our team. We also were recognized as TiE Inflect 2018 Top 50 finalist and were named a Top 10 Artificial Intelligence Solution Provider by Enterprise Security magazine.
This has been an incredible year for us, and we couldn’t have done it without the support and trust of our customers, investors, partners and team! We wanted to take a moment and share our gratitude and progress with you, and say how humbled we are to have reached this incredible milestone—and we’re excited for the amazing years to come.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
