Bellevue-based startup Oleria Corp., a cybersecurity innovator specializing in identity security solutions, has secured $33 million in Series A funding to bolster adaptive and autonomous identity security solutions by propelling its AI capabilities and supporting global expansion.
The brainchild of cybersecurity experts Jim Alkove and Jagadeesh Kunda, the startup’s Series A funding round was led by Evolution Equity Partners, with participation from Salesforce Ventures, Tapestry VC, and Zscaler.
The total funding for Oleria now surpasses $40 million, setting the stage for further innovation in adaptive and autonomous identity security solutions.
The company founded just ten months ago, has emerged from stealth mode and garnered significant attention with its mission to redefine identity security in the face of evolving cyber threats.
With a seed funding round of $8 million led by Salesforce Ventures in March 2023, Oleria has swiftly moved forward, now piloting its groundbreaking solution with a diverse group of customers and anticipating general availability in early 2024.
Empowering CISOs with Adaptive Security
Oleria Corp. provides organizations with comprehensive visibility into their access posture, autonomously identifying and mitigating access risks before they can be exploited.
The platform’s unique approach to access management allows Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to protect data and maintain trust in dynamic environments without compromising business agility.
The solution continuously assesses and validates digital interactions, adapting security to specific contexts and changing needs. By providing appropriate access to the right users at the right time, Oleria ensures a relentless focus on user experience, challenging the conventional trade-off between security and speed.
Navigating the Evolving Threat Landscape
In a landscape where 80 percent of all breaches exploit compromised identities, Oleria aims to modernize security solutions. Legacy approaches, often manual and rigid, fall short of meeting the complex needs of organizations adopting interconnected SaaS applications and cloud infrastructure.
With Evolution Equity Partners leading the Series A round, along with the backing of industry giants like Salesforce Ventures, Tapestry VC, and Zscaler, Oleria has garnered confidence from cybersecurity experts. Evolution Equity Partners’ Partner Taher Elgamal, a former CTO of Security at Salesforce, emphasized the critical, unmet need Oleria fulfills in identity security.
Jim Alkove, co-founder and CEO of Oleria, expressed excitement about accelerating growth and product innovation with the expanded team in Bellevue. The company aims to deliver the next evolution of adaptive and autonomous identity security solutions, empowering organizations to stay ahead of evolving threats without sacrificing agility.
Oleria Corp.’s recent funding positions it at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation, with a commitment to addressing identity-based threats in a dynamic digital landscape. As the company moves towards general availability, its adaptive security solutions promise to reshape how organizations approach identity security.
