We want to make customer identity an enabler for every business

Helping applications move past passwords is the first step.

Our long and winding road together

Descope’s founders have over 30 years of enterprise security experience, most of it working together. We have created companies valued at over $1B and grown product line revenues at Palo Alto Networks and McAfee by 100s of millions. 

Building and scaling Demisto into a SOAR leader was fun. So was joining Palo Alto Networks and taking Cortex XSOAR from scratch to hypergrowth.

You know what wasn’t fun? Building customer authentication in-house at each of our previous companies. It always started as a sprint and ended in an unwanted marathon.

Descope is a letter of recognition and apology to our past selves. And while our past selves can’t use Descope, we think every other developer on the planet should.

Our guiding principles

Build in public icon

Build in public

We don’t like black boxes and ivory towers. Both internally as a team and with our users, we are transparent with what we do well and where we can do better. When we know something, you will know soon after.

Ship fast and slow icon

Ship fast and slow

We bring services to market with speed but without taking shortcuts. Our goal is always to embrace simple solutions when possible, while also taking a long term view on aspects like security, scalability, and resilience.

Every maker matters icon

Every maker matters

We believe that every developer and app are slightly different. Whether you’re a no-code lover, SDK stan, or API aficionado – our aim is to meet you where you are rather than asking you to adapt to our services.

Embrace the espresso icon

Embrace the espresso

Our mission is ambitious and we intend to have fun along the way to achieving it. At Descope, you can expect to meet high-energy folks that are stimulated by solving big problems. We also really like coffee.
