Remote infrastructure access provider BastionZero has scored $6m in a seed funding round headed by Dell Technologies.
Also participating in the seed investment round were investors Akamai and DG Lab Fund of Japan.
Launched in 2019, BastionZero automatically integrates with a users’ SSO provider and logs and monitors remote access by users or their scripts. The technology can be supposedly deployed in minutes and ‘provides all the benefits of zero trust’ without storing the credentials to a users’ targets in a centralised authority that can get hacked.
BastionZero claims it plans to use the new investment to build out new features and automate the rollout across cloud and other types of infrastructure.
BastionZero CEO Sharon Goldberg said, “What we’ve built at BastionZero is a cloud service that simplifies zero-trust access to infrastructure, using a modern security architecture approach based on multiple roots of trust. We believe that we’re part of a new security product category that will displace VPNs, bastion hosts, and privilege access management (PAM) tools.”
