Our story

From a small company to a globally recognized open source identity leader

Since its establishment in 2011, Evolveum has been a place where exceptional people come together to create something unique the whole world can benefit from. Trusting their team and vision, co-founders Radovan Semancik and Igor Farinic set a goal to achieve this by creating midPoint, a major enabler that empowers organizations to gain from IGA in a way not possible before.

Going all in, they faced many challenges for years. However, anything is possible with the right people, and after a decade, midPoint is now the leading open source identity management and governance platform.

Today, thanks to the joint effort of the Evolveum team, a global community of open source enthusiasts, partners, and customers, midPoint is a globally recognized game changer that shapes identity security and makes it available to everyone, everywhere.
