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.

Email security protocol DMARC protects against exact domain impersonation, a major cause of phishing attacks.

This technology didn’t exist. Yet.
