How it all began

Identity is the new security perimeter, and identity-based compromise has become the leading root cause of attacks. However, identity security has been long fragmented, lacking integrated security tooling, clear ownership, and proper training.

Johnny and Nick started Crosswire in 2021 to solve this exact problem. When they first met, they immediately found that most companies were not protected against workforce identity security threats. Security teams are chronically underinvesting in identity security due to the high barrier to entry and the ever-evolving threat landscape. This is where Crosswire was born — the centralized security platform for IdP.

Crosswire hunts for security threats, neutralizes issues without stopping your user, and ultimately improves your overall identity security posture. Since our inception, we have helped leading financial services, innovative tech startups, and publicly traded companies protect against identity-related breaches. We are lucky to count world-class investors like Andreessen Horowitz and General Catalyst and top security practitioners as our supporters.

What began as a small group of builders, thinkers, and hackers is continuously growing, and we're building a great product underpinned by our values. Join us in our mission to stop identity threat together.
