Egress is founded in London, UK, by CEO Tony Pepper, COO Neil Larkins and CSO John Goodyear.
Tony, Neil and John met when working together at Reflex Magnetics, a data security company that was later acquired by Checkpoint Software Technologies. They launched Egress following this success.
Egress Protect launch
We launch our first security solution, Egress Switch.
Now known as Egress Protect, our email encryption software was adopted by a network of local authorities based in London and quickly spread throughout the wider public and corporate sectors in the UK.
Series A funding
We successfully receive Series A funding of $2.8m from Albion VC, helping to accelerate our rapid growth.
Albion VC partner Ed Lascelles joins the Egress board, where he continues to serve, and uses his expertise to help us transition from start-up to scale-up. Albion would later fill Egress' Series B funding round as well.
Egress Prevent launch
We launch the product now known as Egress Prevent, which ensures emails and attachments are sent to the right people, mitigates spear phishing, and applies appropriate protection to sensitive data.
This innovation creates a new category of security technology: human layer security, which uses intelligent machine learning to prevent insider data breaches.
Series C funding
We receive Series C funding totalling $40m from FTV Capital and Albion VC. This investment starts a period of hyper-growth for Egress.
Kyle Griswold, Partner at FTV Capital, joins the Egress board to help steer the direction of this new growth.
Egress Defend launch
Egress acquires cutting-edge NCSC Accelerator company Aquilai, an anti-phishing provider with machine learning and natural language processing technology that stops targeted email attacks.
The acquisition sees the launch of Egress Defend, with founder Jack Chapman joining Egress as VP of Threat Intelligence, along with many members of the Aquilai team.
Environment, Social & Governance
Investing in initiatives that both Egress as a whole, and our staff, are passionate about has been an important part of our growth.
Here are a selection of some of the ways we’re supporting issues such as environmental impact, diversity and equality, fair employment practices, and our local communities.Our program & activities
