Tailscale, a Toronto, Canada-based corporate VPN for remote teams and organizations to securely access the services they need, raised US$12m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Accel, with participation from Heavybit and Uncork Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to scale the engineering team and build out their first marketing and sales teams.
Launched in April, the company has since served tens of thousands of customers a month including DC Energy’s trading markets and Oxide’s bare metal business.
Led by Avery Pennarun, co-founder and CEO, Tailscale leverages zero-trust architecture from BeyondCorp at Google and the WireGuard protocol to provide a corporate VPN for remote teams and organizations of any scale to securely access the services they need. As a software-only solution the company works with existing identity services, like GSuite, Microsoft 365, and Okta.
