A day after PrivateCore announced its acquisition by Facebook it has been nothing short of awesome to see the reaction to this news. Having watched Oded Horovitz and Steve Weis build PrivateCore from concept to company — starting in our office only 2.5 years ago — I would have expected nothing less for them and the team. Oded and Steve are brilliant technologists and consummate entrepreneurs, and I’m thrilled that their vision for securing servers will be realized at massive scale inside of Facebook.
Congratulations and Thank You to the PrivateCore team!
We have some big news: PrivateCore will be joining Facebook. What makes this development so exciting for us is that Facebook and PrivateCore have an aligned mission. Facebook has done more than any company to connect the world, and we want to use our secure server technology to help make the world’s connections more secure.
Since the beginning, we have worked tirelessly on our technology to protect servers from malware threats, unauthorized physical access, and malicious hardware devices. Working together with Facebook, there is a huge opportunity to pursue our joint vision at scale with incredible impact. Over time, Facebook plans to deploy our technology into the Facebook stack to help protect the people who use Facebook. We know we will learn and grow as we continue developing our technology and making it stronger.
The PrivateCore team wouldn’t be where we are without our investors who believed in us, and we want to thank everyone who has been a part of this journey with us. The work is just beginning and we can’t wait to get started.
