About Carbide

Not having proper information security in place cost Carbide’s co-founders, Darren Gallop and Laird Wilton, a six-figure deal at a previous SaaS company. As they engaged consultants and worked to implement information security best practices, they found the available solutions for infosec management came up short. With that, Carbide was born.
