Meet Our Team

of Superheroes.

StrongKey was born out of StrongAuth, a veteran Silicon Valley firm providing security to governments and companies all around the globe. For the internet we have today and will need tomorrow, we believe everyone should have rock solid, industrial strength data security at an affordable price—and StrongKey is how we’re accomplishing that mission.

Our team is split between Cupertino, CA, and Durham, NC. When we’re not busy creating a safer internet, we love cycling, office cook-offs, board games, t’ai chi, photographing weddings, and playing ping pong. (In fact, if you can beat all of us, maybe we’ll ship you a free Tellaro. But it ain’t gonna happen…)
