More Than Just Cool

Some things get labeled as great because they’re perceived as cool. Some things are cool because they’ve been proven great. We prefer to be the latter – because proving ourselves is exactly how we earned that authentic stamp of coolness.

When we were founded in 2013 by KPMG veteran Jody Paterson, we had a goal of developing better and more cost-effective access controls and security auditing solutions for SAP customers. Since then, we’ve surpassed that goal and have set our sights far beyond it as we continually move into new security frontiers.

We love it when SAP customers see our solution in action and say, “That’s really cool.” The source of that wow factor is an innovative, fun culture, and a mission with meaning – to perfect a solution that makes life easier for our customers by keeping their companies safe. Now that’s really cool.
