In today’s digital environment, enterprises must evolve their access and connectivity security to protect today’s distributed work environments. With 84% of organizations having suffered identity-based cyberattacks, it is no longer safe to grant employees universal access to an entire network. Instead, access and connectivity must be granted on an individual basis and mapped to specific assets and data.
In addition to the financial investment, IBM will provide cybersecurity expertise and technical resources in support of Cyolo’s Zero Trust Secure Access platform. Additionally, the teams will collaborate on go-to-market initiatives ranging from partner engagements to panel sessions in support of Cyolo’s mission to connect users to the assets they need to do their jobs simply, securely. safely and efficiently.
IBM Ventures’ investment in Cyolo is further evidence of the urgent need for cybersecurity solutions that reduce complexity and work seamlessly across workforces and distributed environments. Earlier this year, IBM Ventures participated in Cyolo’s Series B round, helping the company raise $60 million in total. The new investment will help Cyolo further expand its market presence.
“For many companies, the acceleration of remote workers has created both opportunities and challenges. The distributed model for people and assets has made it difficult to connect and secure them,” said Professor Yaron Wolfsthal, Head of IBM Cyber Security CoE, Israel. “With IBM’s investment in Cyolo, we will continue to focus on ensuring customers can break down silos and quickly deliver secure access across distributed environments,” said Ben Daniels, IBM Ventures Partner.
