We set out to build a universe that provides security as a fundamental right for all.

In 2016, we were a couple of SecOps pros trying to secure our own company. We needed a cloud native security and governance platform that didn’t exist, that others thought impossible to build. But where others saw a roadblock, we saw infinite potential.


A mission for simplified security

One after another, potential providers presented their solutions, and before long, we saw before us a web of complementary tools and hubs to execute virtually every security process or control that existed. And yet, none could answer the one simple question we had: Are we compliant and secure?

Complexity: the enemy of agility

Security operations have resigned to a fate of solutions riddled with complexity, a piecemeal approach that weighs down entire teams with a tedious to-do list of manual tasks—but that’s a future we reject. Less is more, and complexity is the enemy of usability. Every process can be simplified. And so our small team set out to manifest the tool we imagined: a solution imbued with simplicity without sacrificing security, leveraging automation and security-as-code as touchpoints.

Discovering a new frontier for security

It wasn’t long before we produced a new sort of security program, one that put asset visibility at the center. We had built our own tooling from the ground up and designed it to be clean, streamlined, and intuitive, easy to customize and free from unnecessary implementations. With fewer complexities muddying our entire cybersecurity tool chain, we witnessed the power of unparalleled visibility.

The JupiterOne pledge

We’re working to secure a future of openness, accessibility, and greater visibility, empowering cybersecurity professionals with tools they need to secure their digital world.

We Shine

We foster visibility, understanding, and interconnectedness by shining a light on the farthest reaches of your digital universe. With relevant information illuminated, effective, confident decision-making follows.

We Accelerate

We believe that security should serve as an accelerator—not an inhibitor—for business, development, growth, and innovation. We’re in the business of lifting you up with a security solution that’s accessible for all.

We Empower

We fuel success for security professionals, customer-first organizations, their businesses, and the world with deeper data and actionable insight to help security teams propel their organizations and digital transformations forward.

We Invigorate

Our driving force is enthusiasm—for what we do, what we’ve built, and what those results mean for our customers, teammates, and the world at large.
