Customer Identity and Access Management Provider Strivacity Announces $9.3 Million in Series A Funding

Strivacity, a customer identity and access management (CIAM) provider, announced that the company secured a total of $9.3 million in Series A financing. The funding round was led by Ten Eleven Ventures with participation from Toba Capital.

The average person has 100 different applications and services which require a password1. The brands that run those apps and services work hard to create great experiences for their customers. Yet CIAM solutions offered by large identity and access management (IAM) providers force companies to make tradeoffs between creating the best customer experience, securing their customers’ data and staying compliant with fast-changing privacy regulations. Too often, this results in engineering and security teams getting bogged down with lengthy custom-coding projects.

“CIAM tools are a great driver for digital transformation, but in their current form, are still pretty complex,” said Todd Weber, CTO and operating partner at Ten Eleven Ventures. “Stitching together all the right processes and tooling – while balancing customer needs, security, privacy and compliance – is simply more difficult than it should be, and requires too much extra time and custom coding by development teams. Strivacity has developed a new kind of CIAM solution that solves this challenge by giving developers a platform to work with and creates a better experience for users. Strivacity shows how much better CIAM can be, and we’re thrilled to help bring their innovation to the world. Get ready for apps to become a whole lot easier to develop – and to use.”

Strivacity will use the funding to accelerate R&D and expand go-to market investments in sales and marketing. As part of the investment, Todd Weber will join Strivacity’s board of directors.
