About Us

At Evolv, we provide a secure and seamless screening experience, making it possible for venues of all kinds to keep visitors safe from concealed weapons and intruders. Founded in 2013, we are a mission-driven company headquartered and manufactured in the United States with a proven track record in screening people for threats without sacrificing the visitor experience. People screening that’s intelligent, low-profile and highly accurate — that’s what we do.

We are Evolv

Evolv Technology is a human security company.

We were founded with a vision to keep people safe where they gather. We’ve assembled leaders in physics, engineering, security, intelligence, and operations to build technology that makes the world a safer place.

We’re committed to constant innovation and come to work every day driven by a deep sense of our combined purpose to help create safer experiences around the globe.

We believe that people deserve to be safe.

It’s their right. It’s our purpose.

Our Mission

We transform security to enhance everyone’s life. We strive to create a safer world for people to live, work, learn, and play.

Our Platform

Evolv’s weapons detection system is built on the Evolv Cortex AI® software platform enhancing safety without sacrificing experience.

Our Vision for a Safer World

At Evolv, we believe that safety is a basic human right.

However, we live in a world where our safety cannot always be ensured. The threat landscape has dramatically shifted, and so has the way in which we live our lives. There is a pressing need to keep public spaces safe.

Today, we move through life expecting a touchless, frictionless experience. We carry technology with us daily that supports modern living. And still, we are hindered by an outdated standard of physical security created in a different era.

Evolv understands that there needs to be a better way. Through a combination of powerful sensor technology, proven AI, and comprehensive insights, Evolv is transforming the way in which people move through life. We can now screen for threats at an unparalleled ease and speed with digital insights that continually improve a security posture.

We envision a world where safety is the default. A world where experiences are optimized. A world where peace of mind replaces fear and making memories replaces anxiety. Evolv is committed to that vision.

How We Work

Evolv transforms human security to make a safer, faster, and better experience for all. Using industry leading artificial intelligence (AI)-powered weapons detection and analytics, we are partnering with customers to create safer spaces for people to gather around the globe.

We work closely with customers and prospects from the moment of contact through the lifetime of our partnership. From education and training to deployment and service of our systems, Evolv is dedicated to helping security professionals make the best decisions to secure their venues for today’s threat landscape and that of the future, so that we can all make the world a safer place.
