About Us

A passion for preventing global harm and protecting user privacy.

The Kodex Mission

We are, at heart, focused on preventing harm.
It was obvious to us that there had to be a better way for companies to respond to the millions of data requests issued each year than traditional email, fax or physical mail…and we delivered.

Our innovative SaaS solution is reshaping how private enterprises, law enforcement, and governing bodies engage on legal process. This new generation of intelligent compliance rallies around user-centric fundamentals: ease & automation, assured security & privacy and complete transparency.

Matt Donahue

Matt Donahue

Founder & CEO

Before Matt founded Kodex, he was doing Counterterrorism Intelligence for the FBI. He saw first-hand how even multi-billion dollar companies struggled to securely, and efficiently, respond to legal data requests from governments around the world. The Problem? There was no standardized, secure, or trusted medium by which the public and private sectors could interact in order to prevent real-world harm while protecting user privacy.

The Solution? Kodex.
