Aporeto, a San Jose, Calif.-based Identity-Powered Security platform, raised $20M in Series B funding.
The round was led by Comcast Ventures with participation from Wing VC, Norwest Venture Partners, National Grid Partners (NGP) and Telia Ventures, the venture investment arm of Telia Company, the New Generation Telco headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. In conjunction with the funding, David Zilberman, managing director of Comcast Ventures, will join the Aporeto board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand adoption of its solution.
