Authorisation software firm Cerbos secures $7.5m


Cerbos, an adaptive authorisation software firm, has secured $7.5m in a seed funding round and launched Cerbos Cloud.

Cerbos is an open-source authorization layer to implement roles and permissions in software applications. It separates authorisation logic from the core application code, making the authorization layers more scalable, more secure and easier to change as the complexity grows. Cerbos Cloud streamlines the implementation and management of authorization policies.

Cerbos was founded in 2021 with the mission to make authorisation simpler to implement and manage so developers can focus on building their core products and driving business value. Later that year, Cerbos introduced its open-source authorization solution.

The company said it takes a unique stateless approach which enables limitless scale. As application usage and authorization logic complexity grows, Cerbos can be scaled up to handle the increased volume without any limits or additional infrastructure.

At the same time, Cerbos said it takes a policy-based approach that keeps all authorization rules centralized and manageable, decoupling it from the codebase. This enables roles and permissions rules to be updated without rewriting code, all while maintaining strong audit logs, a requirement for regulated industries.

Cerbos Cloud simplifies the process of managing authorization policies, testing changes and distributing updates in real-time. It is a scalable solution for developers who want to save time, streamline their workflows and confidently roll out authorization updates, letting them focus on delivering great products and improving the end-user experience.

Cerbos co-founder and CEO Emre Baran said, “Decoupling authorization makes life easier for both developers as well as product managers and security teams who create the requirements. Once implemented, the developers can focus on the rest of their job without having to deal with every change in access control logic.

“We are launching Cerbos Cloud today to take away the operational burden of managing, testing and deploying changes. Developers can now spend even more of their valuable time delivering great products instead of maintaining the infrastructure of the authorization layer.”

VoxSmart, a leader in communications surveillance and financial AI solutions, has recently raised a further $12m in a recent funding round.
