Reading Time: 4 minutes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tel Aviv, Israel – Perimeter 81, a Zero-Trust Software Defined Perimeter company, founded by Amit Bareket, CEO, and Sagi Gidali, CPO, announced today that it has completed a $5M funding round.

The round was led by Spring Ventures, controlled by Aviv Refuah, with additional funds from US-based investors and existing shareholders. The company will use the funds to accelerate growth, primarily investing in expanding the sales, marketing and R&D teams in its Tel Aviv and New York offices, and developing new cloud firewall capabilities.

“The rise of Cloud and Mobility has disrupted network, cloud and application security as we know it. With employees working on the go and from different locations around the world, and companies increasingly moving towards the cloud, the traditional hardware-based legacy appliances of the past are no longer suitable for today’s modern and distributed workforce,” said CEO and Co-Founder Amit Bareket. “Perimeter 81’s user-centric Secure Network as a Service, which utilizes the Zero-Trust and Software-Defined Perimeter models, enables businesses to more easily secure access to local network resources, cloud environments, and business applications, with a seamless and highly intuitive SaaS solution.”

Since the launch of the product, Perimeter 81 has gained immediate traction in the market, growing at a rapid, double-digit rate month over month and quickly acquiring hundreds of clients including Fortune 500 companies and some of the leading industry names in government, entertainment, technology, and AI. Additionally, Perimeter 81 has been named an Ingram Micro Mass Challenge Comet Finalist, an InfoSecurity Product Guides Global Excellence “Cybersecurity Startup of the Year” and “Cybersecurity Vendor Achievement of the Year” winner, and a Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards winner.

“We are big believers in the Zero-Trust and Software-Defined Perimeter cloud-based approach and have followed Perimeter 81 for a long time,” said Aviv Refuah, founder of Spring Ventures. “With its unique and forward-thinking cybersecurity SaaS approach, great team and impressive growth rate, Perimeter 81 will now be able to grow even faster, add additional security features and fulfill its vision to fully bring network security into the cloud.”

Perimeter 81 was recognized as a Sample Vendor under the Software-Defined Perimeter category in three Gartner Hype Cycle reports.

Perimeter 81 is unique in the market in that its holistic, cloud-agnostic solution offers both customizable networking capabilities and advanced security features, and also ensures secure access at the network and application level. The software service can be rolled out quickly and provides automatic gateway deployment, easy multi-tenant management, and full network visibility.

Perimeter 81 is the second venture for Co-Founders Amit Bareket and Sagi Gidali, who have also launched successful consumer VPN service, SaferVPN. SaferVPN, a profitable business launched in early 2014, quickly became a household name, with over 3 million international app downloads and one of the highest customer satisfaction rates in the industry. The consumer software company was selected by Deloitte Israel’s Technology Fast 50 – Rising Star rankings, recognized for sustained revenue growth over 2 years. Moreover, its patented Automatic Wi-Fi Security was white-labeled by leading global endpoint protection company Webroot, recently acquired by Carbonite.

With the new funding round, Perimeter 81 expects to double its team, add more security services, fulfill its vision to lead the SDP market and furthermore, disrupt the traditional firewall landscape.

“With Perimeter 81, we took our knowledge of what worked for the consumer market, and ultimately, the end-user, and transformed the complex and outdated technology that so many businesses rely upon, into a seamless and user-friendly SaaS service,” said Sagi Gidali, Co-Founder and CPO. With this new funding round, we look forward to expanding our reach and further enabling companies of all industries and sizes to become fully, securely mobile and confidently cloud-based.”

Perimeter 81 Recognized in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018, Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018, and Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018

Perimeter 81 Recognized in Gartner’s Hype Cycle

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Perimeter 81, a secure network access solution for the modern and distributed workforce has been recognized as a Sample Vendor by Gartner Inc., a leading IT research and advisory company, in the Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018, Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018, and Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018.

We feel that this recognition encourages the success we’ve had in developing the next generation of innovative network access products and Wi-Fi security solutions.

At Perimeter 81, we have eliminated the need for traditional legacy VPN technology which is hardware-based, costly and both difficult to install and manage. Instead, we offer a simple, easy-to-use and cost-effective software solution for companies of all sizes.

Our Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) service provides greater network visibility, seamless onboarding and full integration with major cloud providers, giving companies of all industries and sizes the power to be truly mobile and enjoy complete confidence in the cloud.

In the Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018 report Gartner analysts Neil MacDonald and Steve Riley describe software-defined perimeter (SDP) as “an intersection of software-defined security and software-defined networking concepts, targeting controlled access of resources to a defined community of entities, thus reducing the surface area for attack.”

They also wrote, “SDP has piqued the interest of organizations seeking an alternative to VPNs and more precise access and session control to applications located on-premises and in the cloud.” The technology “will appeal to organizations looking for innovative and secure ways to both connect and collaborate with their digital business ecosystem, remote workers and partners.”

In the Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018, Neil Macdonald and Steve Riley write that there are several use cases that lend themselves to SDP:

  • Opening up applications and services to collaborative ecosystem applications, such as distribution channels, suppliers, contractors or retail outlets without requiring the use of a VPN or DMZ.
  • Cloaking systems on hostile networks, such as systems facing the public internet used for collaboration.
  • Carrying encryption all the way to the endpoints for scenarios where you don’t trust the carrier or cloud provider.
  • Application-specific access for IT contractors and remote or mobile employees as an alternative to VPN-based access.
  • Permitting users in potentially dangerous areas of the world to interact with applications and data in ways that reduce or eliminate risk prone to originate in those areas.
  • Secure enclaves of IoT devices if the device can support lightweight SDP agent or a virtual-appliance-based connector on the IoT network segment for connection.
  • Enabling SaaS to enterprise connectivity for workloads that require SaaS applications to interact with on-premises services.

What is the Hype Cycle?

Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals.

Additionally, we feel that the Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018, allows I&O leaders to evolve their networks by evaluating new technologies that support digital business initiatives and new business models. However, we believe that Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018 encompasses technologies and standards that improve the security, governance and reliability of private and public cloud computing.

Why We Feel This Recognition Is Important

As new solutions continue to rise, it’s important to have a reputable resource to gain insight on the most effective and successful solutions on the market. From our perspective, the Hype Cycle gives leaders this much-needed resource, allowing them to easily find successful infrastructure strategies, cloud security solutions and effective enterprise networking and communications applications.

We are honored to be recognized in this year’s Gartner Hype Cycle. You can access Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018 report, Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018 report, and Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018 report on gartner.com.

We are a globally recognized secure network access provider that lives up to and beyond the hype.  If you’d like to learn more about our product, or our vision for SDP technology, don’t hesitate to reach out to us or comment below.

“After a few years of transforming ChannelNEXT, I believe we finally got it right. We have transformed into a best business practice building conference with peer-to-peer collaboration at its core.

During our “Mastermind” peer-group sessions, we were able to share our goals, pain points and advice all while making connections and learning about new insights and solutions entering the market.

Presenting our Secure Network Access at ChannelNEXT

It’s become clear that the way we work has changed. Today, the workforce is overwhelmingly mobile, cloud-based and dependent on unsecured Wi-Fi which is why companies are in dire need of a cloud-enabled VPN.

The high demand for this increasingly popular technology has allowed us to develop new MSP relationships by offering a new source of recurring, consistent revenue streams, allowing them to deepen their customer relationships while saving them time and money.  

Here are a few of our highlights from the ChannelNEXT Conference in Niagara Falls:

Perimeter 81: Simplifying Secure Network Access

With the rise of the mobile workforce, cloud transformation and adoption of BYOD policies, fortifying secure network access is more important than ever before. But many MSPs still feel they have to turn to outdated, complex and costly legacy VPN solutions that offer limited management capabilities, are difficult to use, and do not integrate well with the cloud. In this workshop, we’ll show you how the rise of the Software-Defined Perimeter can help you achieve stronger security, more easily manage your clients’ networks, earn high recurring revenues and ensure your place at the forefront of the market.
