Zuul, a Columbia, Md.-based Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) secure device management platform, raised $300k in seed funding.
Tedco, MasterPeace LaunchPad and local angel investors participated in the round.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its sales effort and increase support for additional IoT platforms.
Led by Founder and CTO Edward Stanford, Zuul protects IoT devices found in smart transportation, smart buildings, and industrial control systems by providing defense-in-depth, hardening of devices, securing of communications, locking down of networks and applications, and integrating IoT device security with the existing enterprise IT security systems.
The first customer is a global public sector transportation and mobility company.
Zuul will enter 2018 with a roadmap to begin software deployment in select U.S. municipalities.
