Stormpath, a San Mateo, CA-based provider of an identity access control service for cloud and enterprise applications, has raised $1.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by Flybridge Capital Partners and New Enterprise Associates, with participation from angel investors Andy Rachleff, and Len Lehmann.
Founded by CTO Les Hazlewood and CEO Alex Salazar, the company is building a console and APIs that manage user security both in the cloud and behind a firewall. It allows developers to apply enterprise security practices, secure passwords, integrate to existing identity systems and set up fine-grain access control.
The Stormpath team also leads the Apache Shiro project, a security framework that simplifies authentication, authorization, cryptography, and session management within an application.
