Our key milestones
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.
We launch our first security solution. 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.
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.
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.
We launch Egress Investigate, providing CISOs and their security teams with enhanced compliance reporting across their email networks.
This technology will go on to help enterprises around the world comply with new and more stringent data security regulations like GDPR and CCPA.
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.
