Who We Are

Our team, your challenges


Organizations are drowning in a complex and ever-changing sea of identities, technologies, relationships, and users (both human and machine). This is what we call “identity sprawl”, and it’s a persistent security risk and operational burden that many security and IT teams struggle to get ahead of and conquer.


Our team is dedicated to solving the problem of enterprise security by focusing on where it starts – identity. We take a personal, yet scalable approach to helping CISOs, security, and IT practitioners understand and secure their identity ecosystem. We believe that security is a we-all problem. By visualizing security risks and empowering individuals, we can fundamentally change the way that security is perceived and implemented.


Our Vision

Today, Oort is a globally-distributed identity threat detection and response platform for enterprise security. We envision Oort of the future as the connective tissue of the digital economy. While every business is protecting its own four walls, we are on a mission to connect and secure not only the identity journeys within those walls, but between all businesses everywhere.

It’s time to fix
identity security

Workforce identity today is a painful mess of opaque dependencies and immortal accounts that leave organizations with massive, unseen security gaps. I started Oort to solve this pain with a simple, powerful, identity-based platform for enterprise security.
