Token Security Launches Machine-Centric IAM Platform

Instead of building a list of users and identifying which systems each user can access, Token Security starts with a list of machines and determines who can access each system.

The shift to cloud technologies and microservices means organizations are now managing more identities and credentials than ever. Attackers are also increasingly relying on stolen credentials to carry out their operations, making identity and access management (IAM) the cornerstone of enterprise security.

Token Security has emerged from stealth with a "machine-first" identity security platform that provides visibility and continuous threat exposure management to manage identities. While legacy products focus on building a list of employees and other users and check which systems each person has access to, Token Security starts with a list of machines and identifies who can access each machine.

The platform integrates existing infrastructure and triages data to extract context, evaluate, and prioritize threat detection, the company said. Token Security supports all major infrastructure platforms — Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, and Snowflake — and integrates with major identity providers, source code repositories, and secrets managers.

As part of its launch, Token Security announced $7 million in seed funding from TLV Partners, SNR, and angel investors. The company is currently working with fintech, security, insurtech, and e-commerce companies. Itamar Apelblat, co-founder and CEO, and Ido Shlomo, co-founder and CTO, have worked together for more than 15 years, according to Token Security.
