Trusona is on a mission to get rid of passwords. Why? Passwords are a wicked problem that affects everyone. People want fast and simple logins to their digital lives. CISOs need stronger security. CFOs need to save costs. Businesses need to protect their brand. Worst of all, the wicked password problem perpetuates the most horrendous cybercrimes.
Trusona was founded in 2015 by CEO and cybersecurity expert Ori Eisen and is funded by Kleiner Perkins, Microsoft Ventures, Seven Peaks Ventures, and 2M.
