Cloud Security Company Akeyless Raises $14 Million

May 3, 2021

Akeyless — a secrets management company – recently announced it has raised a $14 million Series A round of financing. These are the details. Akeyless — a secrets management company – recently announced it has raised a $14 million Series A round of financing led by Team8 and with participation from Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP). And Akeyless will use the funding to accelerate product development and growth of the world’s first SaaS-based unified vault, built for secrets management and zero-trust access. As the transformation to hybrid and multi-cloud has been evolving and expanding, secrets like passwords, credentials, certificates, and keys are heavily used between workloads as well as by privileged users, across DevOps and IT security platforms and teams. And what was previously solved by plain key management system (KMS) or privileged access management (PAM) solutions has become much more challenging given the scale and ephemeral nature of the new cloud-native distributed infrastructure, which requires a completely new approach to managing privileged access for machines and humans. Akeyless is providing an innovative Secrets Orchestration Platform that successfully unifies several related use cases via a single solution. And it offers secrets management, zero-trust access (PAM 2.0) and data protection (encryption, signing and KMS), based on Akeyless DFC, the company’s unique virtual HSM FIPS-certified technology. The platform utilizes Distributed Fragments Cryptography (DFC), its proprietary, patent-pending IP, to provide a SaaS-based root-of-trust in a non-trusted distributed environment. And this innovative zero-knowledge KMS performs cryptographic operations using fragments of encryption keys without ever combining them, ensuring that Akeyless or any third party cannot access a customer’s secrets and/or keys. As a result, this provides protection in relation to the CLOUD Act as well as any supply chain attacks. Akeyless was founded by serial entrepreneurs Shai Onn, President; Oded Hareven, CEO; and Refael Angel, CTO. Onn brings over 30 years experience as Founder and Chairman of FireGlass, which was sold to Symantec for $250 million; Israel Country Manager for CA Technologies; and EVP at Ness Technologies. And Hareven, a veteran of the Israeli Defence Forces Cybersecurity elite unit, has held multiple product and project management positions, including as a Director of Product Management at Moovit – which was acquired by Intel for $900 million. Angel, a patent pending cryptographer, was previously a senior engineer at Intuit. Plus the company has assembled a team of cyber and technology experts, including Michael Christenson, the former President and COO of New Relic – who was recently appointed to the Akeyless board. KEY QUOTES: “Having the backing of both Team8 and JVP, the ideal venture partners given their track record in powering the success of innovative cyber security startups, is testimony to the disruption Akeyless brings to the market. We are thrilled to have their invaluable support as we bring our innovative secrets management platform into the new era of hybrid and multi-cloud. Our highly scalable enterprise-grade service is designed to serve an infinite number of customers, secrets and transactions, built on top of multi-region and multi-cloud operations.” — Oded Hareven, Akeyless Co-Founder and CEO “Akeyless is uniquely positioned to take on the secrets management sector – through a platform that not only modernizes the practice but makes it more accessible and effective for businesses. To top it off, the scalability and cost saving it brings make transitioning from any existing solution a no-brainer.” — Iftach Ian Amit, Chief Information Security Officer, Cimpress “Secrets management is a top priority for enterprises. But cloud providers’ offerings are limited, and Akeyless’s competitors’ solutions are expensive, incomplete and hard to maintain. Akeyless’s robust secrets management as-a-service doesn’t require an enterprise to install and maintain it, making it frictionless and affordable. As companies migrate to the cloud, the combination of secrets management and zero trust is critical – Akeyless applies advanced cryptography to make its SaaS offering resilient to attacks.” — Liran Grinberg, Managing Partner, Team8 Capital “We are happy to welcome Team8, joining us in building the next category leader in the secrets management domain. We’ve seen Akeyless demonstrate its value, providing a ubiquitous, zero-trust, secrets management as-a-service to large-scale customers over the last year. We believe that in joining forces with Team8 and the founders, we will be able to build Akeyless to its full potential as a dominant solution.” — Yoav Tzruya, General Partner, JVP
