50 years of combined security experience between the cofounders and they still couldn’t find a security company they admired. Existing data privacy solutions weren’t built for today’s cloud-based infrastructure and the volume, velocity, and variety of data that enterprises are using. Recognizing this disconnect, Dave Cole and Mark Curphey built Open Raven, a modern data security platform that empowers security teams to understand and track where their company’s data is in the cloud and prevent any security incidents before a breach. Cole shares more about Open Raven’s future plans and recent funding round led by Kleiner Perkins.

Data in all formats will soon be the largest source of new opportunities for startups or death.
