Secure Access Startup Emerges From Stealth With $6 Million in Funding

Cybersecurity startup emerges from stealth mode with $6 million in seed funding and a secure access solution for remote workers.

Cybersecurity startup this week announced that it has emerged from stealth mode with $6 million raised in a seed funding round led by The Hive and WestWave Capital.

Founded in 2020 by former Symantec executives, the San Jose, California-based Sonet provides a security-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that helps organizations easily enroll remote workers, provide secure access to resources, and implement zero trust security policies.

Sonet’s solution allows organizations to provide remote workers with secure access to applications and devices directly from the browser, while also supporting fine-grained security policies for monitoring and access control.

The solution helps customers secure applications, servers, and data, enforce content inspection and data access policies, create a secure air gap between devices and enterprise assets, and detect potential attacks, all from a single administration console.

Sonet plans to use the new funding to accelerate customer acquisition and to expand the capabilities of its SaaS platform.

“We are committed to enhancing remote worker productivity through a seamless, secure user experience that can be accessed from any device. Our innovative cloud-based solution eliminates the need for device agents, allowing comprehensive observability for remote workforces via a unified dashboard,” Sonet co-founder and CEO Dharmendra Mohan said.
