OUR HISTORY

Starting out

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. 

March 2010
OUR HISTORY

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.

February 2014
OUR HISTORY

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.

OUR HISTORY

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.
