About Us

Some of us following the trends in Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) see that for the longest period of time, AI/ML has been used to shred users’ privacy, and launch sophisticated security attacks. It doesn’t have to be that way. Our foray into privacy & security leverages the best that the AI/ML community has to offer and turn that into something that helps organizations manage their sensitive data in a simple, secure and compliant way, never possible before, read more in our CEO’s blog here.

"As a data-driven enterprise becomes a necessary reality, it brings with it hard-to-manage fragmentation, complexity and distribution across structured and unstructured data. Making discovery, compliance and governance work in this scenario with a rich and nuanced identity-centric view is necessary, but technically very challenging. Lightbeam’s AI-enabled platform and use-case focused product offerings solves that, and much more. 8VC is proud to be part of this superb founding team’s journey to redefine and enable an enterprise’s identity-first future."
