The Future of Physical Security for the Enterprise: About Verkada

Our Mission: Modernize the World of Physical Security

Today, we build enterprise security cameras that combine cutting-edge camera technology with intelligent, web-based software. In the future, we’ll deepen our use of machine learning to enable entirely new ways of enhancing physical security — many of which have yet to be imagined.

Verkada was founded by three computer scientists and security experts who studied together at Stanford University. A few years after their first company was acquired, they set out to solve the Next Big Thing. Working together out of a basement, in 2015 they built a functional prototype that used facial recognition algorithms to unlock their front door. Shortly thereafter, the trio connected with an experienced enterprise operator and Verkada was born.


Our leadership team brings together expertise in information security, video, and hardware from Cisco Meraki, EMC, VMware, and Chegg.
