Isovalent, a cloud-native networking company, has launched its services to help enterprises connect, observe and secure modern applications with its Cilium product.
Cilium is a API- aware networking and security solution that enables enterprises to monitor their applications and ensure security threats are handled. Teams can use the platform to ensure security-wide policies are being maintained and audit and security rules are not being broken.
To support this launch, the company has closed a $29m Series A funding round, which was led by Andreessen Horowitz and Google. Cisco Investments also joined the round as an investor.
Andreessen Horowitz partner Martin Casado said, “I have spent my entire career in this space, and the North Star has always been to go beyond IPs + ports and build networking visibility and security at a layer that is aligned with how developers, operations and security think about their applications and data.
“Until just recently, the technology did not exist. All of that changed with Kubernetes and eBPF. Dan and Thomas have put together the best team in the industry and given the traction around Cilium, they are well on their way to upending the world of networking yet again.”
