Our Story

Founded by experienced cybersecurity veterans from Carbon Black and Cylance, Obsidian enables organizations to secure their data in the world of interconnected SaaS.

The rapid adoption of SaaS and cloud services is driving agility and allowing businesses to focus on their core mission better than ever before. Security teams need to figure out how to protect users and assets in the cloud without slowing down the business.

We believe that companies need a new kind of cloud-native security solution that delivers frictionless security. Our goal is to give security teams the consolidated visibility, monitoring, and insights they need to defend their SaaS applications from risks, threats, and breaches.

Our Leadership

The Obsidian leadership team has extensive experience delivering world-class cybersecurity and enterprise software at Carbon Black, Cylance, CrowdStrike, AWS, FireEye, and Shape Security. We’re hard at work applying that experience to delivering the industry’s first cloud detection and response solution.
