Years of cloud security
API calls tracked
Riley Priddle & Jeremy Snyder in Dublin

Over the course of just 3 months, they conceived of the vision of bringing visibility via instrumentation to the modern open-source development model, aligning a simple code library to the most popular open-source API frameworks. This led to the development of FireTail's hybrid approach to API security - inline API call inspection and blocking, coupled with cloud-based security posture management, detection and response and centralized API audit.

How FireTail started

Jeremy and Riley first met in 2017 discussing cloud security, the importance of visibility, real-time inventory and configuration monitoring. Over the intermediate years, they continued to discuss trends in the industry, evolving development patterns, and cloud architectures. In 2021, they reunited to explore the role of the API in the modern enterprise.
