Pomerium Raises $13.75M in Series A Funding


Pomerium, a Los Angeles, CA-based provider of an access control platform, raised $13.75M in Series A funding.

The round was led by Benchmark, and general partner Eric Vishria will join the company’s board. Return investors Bain Capital, Haystack, SNR, and Oleg Rogynskyy, founder of People.AI, also participated.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its development efforts.

Led by Bobby DeSimone, CEO and Founder, Pomerium provides companies of every size, from startups to Global Fortune 2000 companies, with an access control platform that serves as a gateway between users and resources they need, ensuring only authorized individuals can reach protected assets. Acting as an intermediary, the company proxies the traffic between users and resources, brokering access without ever exposing the resource directly to the user. By continuously verifying identity, access permissions, and context, it offers a more secure alternative to traditional session-based access solutions.

This architecture not only enhances security but also boosts productivity, benefiting developers, IT teams, and end-users alike. Pomerium ensures complete data privacy by handling data decryption and inspection within the company’s own infrastructure, reducing the risk of exposing sensitive information to third-party provider breaches.

Today, Pomerium is also announcing its newest security platform offering, Pomerium Zero, a version of Pomerium offering both on-premise and hosted benefits when securing clientless connections to web applications and services without a corporate VPN.
