安全认证创企Valimail获2500万美元B轮融资

Valimail能帮助企业确保没有人能够冒充自己登陆邮箱。这并不是什么特别火的领域,但它却有着很高的必要性。这家公司的邮件认证服务采用了SPF、DKIM和DMARC等标准,目前已经被Yelp、Uber、Fanni Mae和WeWork这些公司所采用。今日这家公司宣布获2500万美元B轮融资,领投方为Tenaya Capital,参投方包括Shasta Ventures、Flybridge Capital Partners和Bloomberg Beta。

本轮融资使得Valimail的融资总额达到了3850万美元,之前它在2016年获得了1200万美元A轮融资。

“身份认证是交流信任的基础。你一定要确信对面是你要联系的人,否自你们的通讯就没有意义。”公司的首席执行官兼联合创始人Alexander Garcia-Tobar说道。

Valimail表示,目前大约有50多亿邮箱支持DMARC标准。在过去的六个月里,域名拥有者们也推出的DMARC记录比过去五年加起来还要多。另外,所有的联邦机构也必须采用这种标准。

Vallimail承诺会认真对待这些事情,它会为这些认证标准提供支持。

“在尝试过其他邮件认证解决方案后,我惊讶于Valimail的自动化水平。它节约了两个全职人力工时,因此我的员工可以集中注意力去解决其他关键问题。”WeWork的信息安全副总裁JJ Agha说道。

Valimail helps businesses ensure that nobody can impersonate them over email. That’s not a sexy business to be in, but very much a necessary one. The company’s email authentication service, which uses standards like SPF, DKIM and DMARC, is currently in use by the likes of Yelp, Uber, Fanni Mae and WeWork. Today, the company announced that it has raised a $25 million Series B round led by Tenaya Capital, with participation from Shasta Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners and Bloomberg Beta.

This round brings Valimail’s  total amount of funding to $38.5 million, including the company’s $12 million Series A round in 2016.

“Authentication is at the root of trusted communications,” Valimail CEO and co-founder Alexander Garcia-Tobar told me. “You must be able to trust the authenticity of who/what is on the other side, or the communication is meaningless. For example, no retailer would never accept a credit card without swiping it first (either physically or virtually). What happens in the credit card world needs to happen for communications.”

The funding round is coming at an important time for email authentication. The DMARC standard is now supported by over 5 billion inboxes, according to Valimail. Over the course oft he last six month, domain owners have also published more DMARC records than in the five previous years combined. In addition, all federal agencies must implement this standard, too.

Valimail promises to take care of all the hassles of setting up support for these authentication standards.

“After attempting email authentication with other solutions, I was amazed at the level of automation Valimail provides,” said JJ Agha, VP of information security at WeWork. “It eliminates the need for two FTEs, so my staff can focus on other key priorities. I consider it a ‘set it and forget it’ solution for ensuring that our employees and executives can’t be impersonated and that our email is trusted.”
