About Descope

The Descope CIAM platform helps organizations easily create and customize their entire user journeys (authentication, authorization, MFA, identity management) using no / low code workflows. Thousands of developers and hundreds of organizations use Descope to improve user onboarding and retention with passwordless authentication, enhance security with MFA and step-up authentication, and unify identities across customer-facing apps. Descope has raised $53M in seed funding led by Lightspeed and GGV Capital, with participation from several other investors and notable individual investors such as George Kurtz (CEO, CrowdStrike), Bipul Sinha (CEO, Rubrik), John Thompson (Board Director, Microsoft), and Assaf Rappaport (CEO, Wiz). Founded in 2022, Descope has offices in Los Altos, CA and Tel Aviv, Israel. Since launching from stealth, Descope has been named in the inaugural Redpoint InfraRed 100, a list of the next 100 promising private companies in Cloud Infrastructure.

About the Team

Descope is founded by a team of highly technical, customer-centric engineers who have created multiple category-defining companies in the past. Most recently, this team created Demisto, a leader in the Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) space that was acquired by Palo Alto Networks for $560M.
