身份管理与认证平台Auth0获5500万美元D轮融资

近日,身份管理和认证平台Auth0在由Sapphire Ventures领投的D轮融资中获得了5500万美元的资金,投资者还包括Bessemer Venture Partners、Trinity Ventures、Meritech Capital、K9 Ventures和World Innovation Lab。

Auth0成立于2013年,该平台可帮助任何第三方网站或应用安全地验证用户,并使其能够登录并访问在线帐户,此外还可以支持单点登录(SSO)、多因素身份验证、无密码登录、社交登录等。归根结底,这是一种规避整合多身份提供者的过程。

该平台还提供了一些功能,例如规则和可自定义的代码,使开发人员和公司可以准确规定人们访问特定在线系统的方式。比如,企业可能会限制某个地区的登录,或限制工作日之外的访问。

这家总部位于华盛顿州贝尔维尤的创企声称自己已经吸引了包括Mozilla、Atlassian、英伟达、VMware、AMD和《金融时报》在内的众多知名客户,并称其每月可以验证超过15亿次用户登录。

在此之前,Auth0已经获得了大约5400万美元的融资。现在,该公司计划推动其全球扩张战略,并制定产品路线图。

Auth0首席执行官兼联合创始人Eugenio Pace表示:“我们非常感激投资者的支持,我们将会继续提供可扩展、功能强大且易于使用的身份管理解决方案。”

Sapphire的投资组合包括很多以开发人员为中心的平台,例如Apigee——几年前被谷歌收购的API管理提供商。因此,能够让Sapphire Ventures作为首席投资者对Auth0来说是一个显著的成功。Sapphire还投资了2013年被英特尔收购的电信开发商平台Aepona,于去年上市并在几个月之后被Salesforce收购的MuleSoft,以及2月份被THL Partners收购的Alfresco。

“我们的目标是找出在具有无限市场潜力的行业中持续高增长的公司,”Sapphire Ventures合伙人Anders Ranum补充说。“除了该公司卓越的领导地位和他们的颠覆性技术产品之外,Auth0提供了独特的组合。”

在过去的一年中,身份管理领域发生了很多变化,例如Gigya被SAP收购,自2009年成立以来筹集了大约2.3亿美元融资的Okta在纳斯达克上市。该公司股价表现出色,目前相较其17美元的IPO价格,上涨了约300%。

看起来Auth0拥有着可以蓬勃发展的肥沃土壤。

Identity management and authentication platform Auth0 has raised $55 million in a series D round of funding led by Sapphire Ventures, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Trinity Ventures, Meritech Capital, K9 Ventures, and World Innovation Lab.

Founded in 2013, Auth0 offers a platform that helps any third-party website or application securely verify users and enable them to log in and access their online accounts — with support for single sign on (SSO), multifactor authentication, passwordless logins, social logins, and more. Ultimately, it’s about sidestepping the arduous process of having to integrate with multiple identity providers — Auth0 promises to take care of it all.

The platform also offers features such as Rules, customizable code that allows developers and companies to stipulate exactly how people access a specific online system. For example, an enterprise may restrict logins to people who live in a certain region, or limit access to weekdays.

The Bellevue, Washington-based startup claims a number of high-profile clients, including Mozilla, Atlassian, Nvidia, VMware, AMD, and the Financial Times, and said that it authenticates more than 1.5 billion user logins each month.

Prior to now, Auth0 had raised around $54 million, and with double that under its belt the company now plans to drive its global expansion and build out its product roadmap.

“We are humbled by the support from our investors and emboldened in our mission to provide the most extensible, powerful, and easy-to-use identity management solution available,” said Auth0 CEO and cofounder Eugenio Pace.

Nabbing Sapphire Ventures as a lead first-time investor is a notable coup for Auth0, given that Sapphire’s portfolio includes myriad other developer-focused platforms, such as Apigee, the API management provider acquired by Google a couple of years back. Sapphire has also backed telco developer platform Aepona, which was acquired by Intel in 2013; MuleSoft, which went public last year before being snapped up by Salesforce a few months ago; and Alfresco, which was bought by THL Partners in February.

“Our goal is to identify companies that demonstrate consistent high growth in an industry that has incredible market potential,” added Sapphire Ventures partner Anders Ranum. “Between the outstanding leadership of the company and their disruptive technology offering, Auth0 offers that unique combination and then some.”

There has been a lot of activity in the identity management realm over the past year — Gigya, for example, was acquired by SAP, while Okta, which had raised around $230 million in funding since its inception in 2009, went public on the Nasdaq. Its shares are riding on the crest of a wave, currently sitting at around 300 percent over its $17 IPO price.

It seems Auth0 has fertile soil in which to flourish.
