BURLINGAME, Calif., Oct. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- strongDM, the control plane for technical teams, today announced that it has closed a $1 million expansion financing round. strongDM will use the new funds to expand the sales and marketing teams to meet increasing demand.
Modern technology depends on distributed and on-demand infrastructure, but relies on the same old security. That explosion in complexity creates substantial security risks by making it hard to answer who did what, when and where. “We reimagined what access and auditing needs to be in a distributed world. strongDM’s control plane is a single source of truth to manage access to everything,” said Elizabeth Zalman co-founder and CEO of strongDM.
strongDM drastically reduces the work to manage permissions or audit activity for overburdened infrastructure teams. The service is easy to deploy and has built a loyal fanbase, including Peter Tormey, Head of Infrastructure for SoFi: "When strongDM said deployment would take an hour, I assumed they were full of it and blocked out an entire day. We finished in 45 minutes.” Adam Jacob, CTO and co-founder of Chef, agrees, “strongDM takes the friction out of managing security and getting end users access to the systems they need.”
Without this new approach, businesses dramatically slow down developers’ productivity or sacrifice security, which increases the risk of a data breach. “strongDM is redefining how companies secure access to sensitive data. strongDM is the only company that completes the promise of single-sign-on across every environment,” said Godfrey Sullivan, Chairman of the Board of Splunk.
Today’s news follows a year of impressive growth for the company which includes:
