Infiot combines ‘thin’ edge device, wireless connectivity for Zero Trust security service

Infiot has emerged from stealth with its Intelligent Access platform, a cloud-delivered intelligent thin wireless edge that supports wired, wireless and cellular connectivity. Infiot’s Intelligent Edge converges connectivity, zero trust security and edge-computing for remote users, sites and devices anywhere in the world.

According to the announcement, Infiot Intelligent Access platform is deployed in production with some of the world’s largest organizations in manufacturing, healthcare, education, hospitality, retail, and more, as well as leading managed service providers, providing connectivity, security, and analytics for remote users, sites and high value IoT devices at scale.

Backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Neotribe Ventures, Westwave Capital, and Harpoon Ventures, with a total of $15 million in Series A funding, Infiot is led by networking industry veterans CEO Parag Thakore, CTO Anupam Rai, and Chief Architect Sunil Mukundan, the original founding team members of VeloCloud, a SD-WAN company acquired in 2017 by VMware.

“The last few years, particularly 2020, have seen an exponential growth of remote users and internet connected devices (IoT),” says Guru Chahal, Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners. “Existing network access, as well as WAN, technologies are unable to provide zero trust security, universal  wireless reach, secure access, and intelligence to these users and devices. Infiot’s founding team shaped the branch edge industry as we know it today. I can’t think of a better team to develop a platform for this fast evolving space remote user and device connectivity space. We are excited to partner with this team of serial entrepreneurs and help them reinvent this market, again.”

“Perimeterless compute and zero trust security are key for enterprises to support all remote users and IoT devices,” adds Infiot co-Founder and CEO Parag Thakore. “Infiot is leading the charge to democratize the edge and provide immersive experiences for digital businesses,” “Our growing base of some of the world’s largest customers and leading managed service provider partners is a testament to our mission.”

IoT Evolution World magazine announced Infiot as the recipient of its 2020 IoT Edge Computing Excellence Award. This award recognizes companies that have proven that their products are enabling advanced IoT deployments by offering solutions that bring real-time edge computing, data availability, analytics, AI and machine learning to edge devices.
