Led by CEO Reed Clayton, Codezero is a microservices development company employing an identity-aware overlay network that delivers transparent security to DevOps. By pioneering the use of dynamic Teamspaces, it facilitates collaboration, enabling DevOps teams to handle infrastructure management, passwords, and secrets while using their preferred tools within a secure, streamlined ecosystem. Codezero Teamspaces is an identity-aware overlay network. This means developers can instantly create environments consisting of services spanning local, cloud, and even their colleagues’ computers. They can do this without needing to know anything about the underlying infrastructure, networking, or direct access to credentials. Teamspaces provides a locally accessible ephemeral environment that is identical to production, can span multiple cloud vendors, and be accessible to developers across the globe safely and seamlessly.

Commenting on the news, Reed Clayton said: “Our mission is to empower DevOps teams with collaborative, multi-cloud infrastructure that prioritizes both security and developer productivity. As a cybersecurity-focused VC firm, Ballistic shares in this mission, and we’re thrilled to be a part of their portfolio.”
