Zilla Security Raises $13.5M to Accelerate Growth and Expand Product Development


Zilla Security announced the completion of a $13.5 million Series A funding. Tola Capital and FirstMark Capital led the round with support from Pillar VC.

“Organizations today are recognizing that identity is the new perimeter in cloud security,” said Deepak TanejaCEO and co-founder of Zilla Security.

“But ensuring the right identities always have the right access in complex, siled and dynamic cloud environments can be a daunting task. Zilla takes the complexity out of identity and permission management by combining identity governance and cloud security in a single platform. We have created the only identity security solution, purpose-built to automate the monitoring and lifecycle of user and machine entitlements through code-free integration into any environment,” Taneja continued.

Zilla’s platform addresses one of the biggest challenges facing organizations today: identity security. Zilla provides cross-organizational access visibility and reviews, risk detection, continuous change tracking, and the ability to address permission drift that occurs over time.

The company is adept at tackling the challenge of managing identities (human, machine, and APIs) and rights based on its robotic automation technology, Zilla Universal Sync (ZUS). ZUS offers connectivity that allows businesses to integrate any application, service or platform in the cloud or on premise.

“Security teams need to understand their identity systems in order to protect the business against a wide range of threats. We saw this as a challenge for many years and were thrilled to find that Zilla offers a simple solution to provide complete visibility to security teams across all of their identity platforms,” said Aaron FleishmanPartner at Tola Capital.

“We are thrilled to partner with Deepak, Nitin and the Zilla team and invest in a truly security-focused identity solution,” continued Fleishman.

“Zilla is revolutionizing the identity security market,” said Amish JaniFounder and Partner of FirstMark Capital.

“The team’s deep expertise in the field of identity management has enabled Zilla to significantly advance the way enterprises manage identity security across cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments,” said Jani.

The new financing comes at a time of strong growth and dynamism for the company. Since entering the market in April 2021, Zilla has powered over fifty enterprise customers, enabling them to automate security and compliance with access reviews, access risk remediation, and continuous change tracking.

The new capital will be used to accelerate growth, expand product development and launch new channels to market.
