Our Story

Obsidian Security was founded in 2017 to solve the unaddressed blindspot of SaaS Security. SaaS applications provide the tools employees need to succeed, holding the most business-critical information as a result. If those tools become unavailable or that data is jeopardized, there is a detrimental impact on the organization.

Since our inception, we’ve been laser-focused on making the impact of SaaS breaches a thing of the past for our customers. While the challenges related to that mission have continued to evolve, we have proudly stayed one step ahead and continue to offer the industry’s most comprehensive and powerful SaaS defense solution.
