The Sift Security Story
Sift Security was formed because commercial products were not available to facilitate efficient discovery and investigation of security threats on large data sets. Colin Estep, our CSO, was previously an Incident Responder at Apple and Netflix. Colin spent a lot of his time proactively hunting for threats using solutions that didn’t meet his needs. He became frustrated with cumbersome solutions that lack intelligence and are challenging to scale. Similar to the experiences we hear from analysts in similar roles at other large enterprises, Colin was looking for a solution that made his job significantly easier, faster, and more enjoyable. We started Sift Security to create the product that meets the needs of folks like Colin.
Sift Security is co-founded and led by Neil King, Chief Executive Officer, who previously was an executive at McAfee and VeriSign. The company is funded by experienced and successful entrepreneurs in the fields of big data and security. We also are pleased to have an outstanding board of technical advisors including current and former CISOs, CIOs, CTOs with experience at leading enterprises.
The team consists of security experts, data scientists and data engineers with experience at companies such as Amazon, Apple, Netflix, McAfee, VeriSign, Cisco, Lockheed Martin and Guavus. Sift Security has a strong engineering culture and many team members have advanced degrees from top tier universities.
At Sift Security, we are passionate about improving the lives of enterprise security professionals by providing them with tools that make their jobs easier and more enjoyable. The name Sift Security reflects our vision of enabling security professionals to greatly accelerate the process of discovering and investigating the most important security events, while minimizing time spent wading through big data and a sea of false positives.
