The $78.1 Million Evolution of Social Fortress to Ionic Security

The idea behind Ionic Security was initially triggered by the company founder's frustration in trying to keep his social media settings private and secure.

"About four years ago, I created a little project called Social Fortress," Adam Ghetti, founder and CTO of Ionic Security, told eWEEK. "That project came into existence because [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg kept changing the privacy settings on Facebook, and I kept getting frustrated that I had to keep resetting the settings."

Total funding to date for the security startup now totals $78.1 million as it builds out its vision of creating a new enterprise security policy platform for data security.
