About The Company

Beyond Identity eliminates passwords and radically changes the way the world logs in without requiring organizations to radically change their technology stack or processes. By replacing passwords with fundamentally secure X.509-based certificates and enabling continuous, risk-based authentication, the company's patents-pending approach creates an extended Chain of Trust™ that dramatically improves security and provides a frictionless login experience. Beyond Identity’s cloud-native solution and advanced, standards-based architecture drastically reduces implementation time and costs–enabling customers to increase business velocity, implement new business models, and reduce operating costs.

Beyond Identity was founded by two industry titans (Jim Clark - founder of Silicon Graphics, Netscape, myCFO, Healtheon/ WebM; Tom “TJ” Jermulok - former COO/ President at Silicon Graphics and former General Partner at Kleiner Perkins) and is funded by leading investors, including Koch Disruptive Technologies and New Enterprise Associates (NEA).
