SecureW2, a comprehensive zero-trust passwordless security software provider, announced today an $80M investment from global software investor Insight Partners. The investment will be used to accelerate market expansion, attract talent, and further fuel the development and enhancement of the company’s passwordless, zero-trust security platform.
SecureW2 allows organizations to leverage real-time security and compliance data from identity & management infrastructure (such as Azure, Okta, Intune, and Jamf) to dynamically automate and authorize access for Wi-Fi, Apps, VPN, and Desktop Logon. SecureW2 software has enabled millions of users and devices to adopt modern certificate-driven passwordless security enabling zero-trust. End users benefit from a frictionless user experience and time savings by leveraging digital certificates to power simplified access via the platform’s modern cloud-native architecture.
“This is the right inflection point in SecureW2’s journey to join forces with Insight Partners, whose track record as a leading cybersecurity software investor is going to immediately benefit our current and future customers,” said Bert Kashyap, CEO and Co-Founder at SecureW2. “As a result of this partnership, SecureW2 will be accelerating new products and channels to market and adding integrations to our ever-broadening ecosystem of technology partners.”
“Organizations are increasingly looking for alternatives to traditional passwords to authenticate access to networks and applications. SecureW2 provides an easy-to-use, cloud-native solution to address this need that is already being used by hundreds of customers worldwide,” said Max Wolff, Principal at Insight Partners. “We look forward to partnering with Bert, Tom, and the whole SecureW2 team for the next stage of the company’s growth.”
SecureW2 recently expanded its service offerings beyond passwordless certificate-based infrastructure access to application security access driven by the expansion of Microsoft’s Azure CBA’s (Certificate-based authentication) capabilities. This follows on the heels of SecureW2 offered limited availability of certificate-based ACME device attestation with the Apple ecosystem earlier this year. For the first time, this allows customers to incorporate a new and increased level of trust provided by Apple for extended policy controls and zero-trust. General availability is coming soon.
