Million-dollar deals can vanish pretty fast. That’s the lesson our co-founders Darren Gallop and Laird Wilton learned at their last company.
While security had always been a factor in how they ran the business and built their product, they were in no way prepared for the scrutiny they received in the due diligence phase of their first million-dollar deal.
That experience – and the subsequent work they put in to build a best-in-class security program – prompted them to imagine a new company dedicated to making enterprise-class security and privacy accessible to any company, no matter their size or resources.
Following the successful acquisition of their new secure venture, they turned that concept into a reality, and Carbide was born.
