Twingate was founded in 2019, and in October closed a $17 million Series A funding round led by venture capital firms WndrCo, 8VC, Green Bay Ventures and SignalFire, as well as Dropbox founders Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi. The Redwood City, Calif.-based company currently employs 27 people, according to LinkedIn.
The company offers a modern remote access tool designed to improve an organization’s security posture without introducing compromise and headaches around deployment and ease of use. Twingate uses standards-based cryptographic techniques to encrypt and authorize network traffic, but takes a unique approach to how much decentralized agreement must exist to authorize network connections.
Twingate alleviates the heavy burden of IT administrators securing their remote workers with a seamless deployment process designed to take 15 minutes or less. The product works in the background without the need for constant babysitting, intelligently segregating traffic before it leaves the end user’s device and directly routing connections to the right destination.
