Funding innovators who protect vital systems and data in a multi-threat world
As early investors in IT Security, we’ve participated in the robust growth of this sector. We see two forces driving the industry. First, the pace of security attacks is accelerating because today’s hackers are increasingly sophisticated, organized and, at times, state sponsored. Second, new platforms, including mobile and cloud computing and social networks, create new vulnerabilities and methods of attack. As customers face this perfect storm of cyber security risks, our portfolio companies are responding with ever-evolving security technology and solutions.
Having invested in sixteen IT security companies since 2000, Trident has developed an unparalleled network of security management talent, industry experts, and influential corporate and government customers. Through our IT security forums and strategic alliances, we network with visionaries on the front lines of cyber security to better understand emerging threats. This outreach enables us to assist our management teams in identifying unmet needs and opportunities. In addition, our deep relationships with the government intelligence community and strategic partners within Fortune 500 companies have opened many doors for companies like yours.
I've worked with Trident on two different startups over a fifteen year period. I deeply value the vision and expertise they bring to their portfolio companies. Early on, they saw the opportunity to bring SaaS technology to the security industry. With Trident's guidance, Qualys has become the service-based solution that 5000 organizations rely on to ensure the security of their IT infrastructure.
