In 2015, Yepez co-founded Trident Capital Cybersecurity, a venture capital fund investing exclusively in cybersecurity companies that's now known as ForgePoint Capital. He joined Trident Capital as a venture partner in 2008 to assist with cybersecurity investments.

He led the investments in Solera Networks, AlienVault, BlueCat Networks and Mocana. In addition, he started working with Trident's Cybersecurity portfolio companies and joined the boards of Mojo Networks, HyTrust, Neohapsis (acquired by Cisco) and Qualys.
