7 Cool Cloud Security Startups At AWS Re:Inforce
From the ‘holy grail of security’ to straightforward data protection tools, entrepreneurs touted a number of new cloud-security products at the Boston conference.
How hot is Perimeter 81? It’s unicorn hot, after the Tel Aviv, Israel-based security company last month raised $100 million in Series C funding, led by B Capital and based on a valuation of $1 billion.
The company, which describes itself as a leading secure access service edge (SASE) and zero trust network access (ZTNA) provider, is led by co-founder Amit Bareket, who has said his firm’s vision is to provide “holistic security that is purpose-built for a cloud-first, distributed workforce.”
At AWS re:Inforce in Boston, Zachery Bagliore, channel partner manager at Perimeter 81, told CRN that his six-year-old firm is “starting to get more focused on the channel,” with about 300 global partners and plans to make the channel the “main focus of the business.”
