How X80 started
X80 was founded in 2020, in the midst of unprecedented migrations to cloud technologies. We are backed by Entrepreneur First, a UK-based fund by Peter Thiel (Paypal) and Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), amongst others.
CVEs do a poor job at measuring real financial impact. Every minute and dollar spent on cyber should be done in a way that maximizes ROI. More precisely, as security professionals, our objective is to get the highest risk reduction per dollar invested.
Furthermore, cyber talent is hard to find and retain, so security teams need to be more efficient than ever – hence, a novel approach that doesn’t burn them out is required.
