Paladin Cloud, one of the leading providers in open source cloud security, has announced that T-Mobile Ventures has participated in its $3.3 million seed financing round.
T-Mobile will collaborate with Paladin Cloud to equip developers with a platform to detect, visualize and remediate key risks in their cloud environments, it said in a statement. Daniel Deeney, Co-Founder and CEO said: “T-Mobile’s leadership in the 5G/Edge developer community makes them an ideal choice for a collaboration partner.”
“We’re excited to provide developers with an open source platform that improves their overall cloud security posture while protecting their applications,” said Steve Hull, Co-Founder and CTO, who was also one of the original creators of PacBot. With Paladin Cloud, developers can continuously monitor their cloud services in real-time, leveraging best practice security policies in an open, connector-based architecture.
The open source platform identifies and eliminates misconfiguration and reduces security risks, while automating workflow and remediation activities. “T-Mobile is thrilled to be the first wireless provider to invest in Paladin Cloud. We share a vision to enable developers to build and deploy modern applications quickly and securely,” said Rob Roy, SVP of Emerging Products at T-Mobile. “This investment is another step forward in unlocking innovation on our industry-leading 5G network.”
The company’s extensible policy management plane covers AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud with the ability to connect into cloud-based enterprise systems. Leveraging T-Mobile’s PacBot framework, Paladin Cloud is building a new open source community dedicated to holistically improving cloud security.
Paladin Cloud’s open source product is free to download and use at GitHub. The company supports its users through its Slack and Gitter channels.
