WORLD WIDE WEB, Internet — Evervault today announced its $3.2 million seed round led by Sequoia Capital, with participation from Kleiner Perkins, Frontline, and SV Angel.
“I’m thrilled to have some of the best investors in the world on board,” said Shane Curran, Evervault founder / CEO. “I’m confident that this will accelerate us on our mission to encrypt the web.”
“Shane has a special combination of clear vision, deep thoughtfulness, and insatiable curiosity,” said Stephanie Zhan, partner at Sequoia. “We are delighted to partner with Evervault at the seed, to solve for today’s massive data breaches and build simple developer tools for data security.”
“Data is king, and the team at Evervault is on a mission to solve the ‘how’ of ensuring data privacy,” said Mamoon Hamid, partner, Kleiner Perkins. “Their developer-first approach ensures that data security becomes part of the development fabric, instead of an afterthought left for compliance to troubleshoot. We’re thrilled to partner with Evervault and help build the new internet infrastructure for data security.”
