You may recall from Friday’s newsletter that 95% of CIOs said their organizations have struggled to support remote workers. Our friends at Salesforce have seen the same problem and just invested about $100 million in Tanium, a firm with that helps to manage security for remote workers. They’re also announced a partnership to build a Tanium-based solution within the Salesforce platform.
ID.me also plays in the user security arena, although their specific focus is identity verification, and in particular remote verification of physical IDs such as passports and drivers licenses. They just raised $8.3 million in new funding, bringing their total to $55 million.
While we’re on the topic, let’s note that Estonia-based Veriff, another identity verification platform, has raised $15.5 million, raising its total to $23.8 million. The company can verify identity documents from over 190 countries. Yes, identity verification is hot.
