We're passionate about solving cybersecurity issues.
From Shazam to Sifts
Red Sift Co-Founders Rahul and Randal are problem solvers. They played a big part in designing the technical architecture of Shazam, and then founded their first startup Apsmart. But they were looking to do something more.
The Red Sift platform is born
When Rahul and Randal set out to build the Red Sift platform, it wasn't because there weren't enough cybersecurity solutions on the market. It was because despite this, too many organizations were still struggling to use available data to fix vulnerabilities in their infrastructure.
On DMARC, get set, go
Email security protocol DMARC protects against exact domain impersonation, a major cause of phishing attacks. Although the DMARC protocol was created in 2012, many businesses didn’t know it existed, and those that did found it hard to implement without the right technology to help. This technology didn’t exist. Yet.
OnDMARC was the first product launched by Red Sift, built on the serverless platform. It enabled businesses all over the globe to easily, quickly, and safely implement DMARC, meaning cybercriminals couldn’t hijack their brand for phishing attacks.
A year after OnDMARC was launched, the now growing team launched an exciting new OnDMARC feature: Investigate! This meant that anyone could check their domain’s SPF, DKIM, and DMARC setup in an instant.
OnINBOX leads the way
With OnDMARC making waves in the market, Red Sift launched OnINBOX, the advanced threat protection software that detects threats in inbound emails using a traffic light system.
Strength in numbers
Following significant success with customers, Red Sift launched the partner program, enabling cybersecurity vendors across the world to offer OnDMARC and OnINBOX as part of their portfolio.
All aboard for BIMI
Partnered with global identity and data protection leader Entrust, Red Sift became the first and only provider of an end-to-end BIMI solution. BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification) allows businesses to attach their registered logo to every DMARC-authenticated email they send.
Red Sift acquires Hardenize
Red Sift acquires global Attack Surface Management (ASM) innovator, Hardenize! The strategic move enables Red Sift to enrich, extend, and improve its existing security solutions to also protect customers’ internet assets and infrastructure, offering a complete, best-in-class Digital Resilience Platform.
Red Sift is a carbon positive organization
We work with trace to offset any environmental impact we have as we scale our teams and operations. We have the information we need to be thoughtful about our choices in how and when we travel, how we build our engineering infrastructure and the suppliers we work with.
Since partnering with trace in 2022, we are delighted to announce that we’ve become a carbon positive company in 2023, meaning we offset 100% of our emissions.
Being able to say we’re carbon positive is something we’re immensely proud of. trace is a female-founded and Australian-born tech company focused on transparency, simplicity, and making carbon neutrality accessible to everyone.
