ZITADEL, creator of a transformative identity management platform, announces a $2.5 million seed funding round led by Nexus Venture Partners. The funding will help ZITADEL provide developers with a much-needed open source alternative to meet their identity management needs and to scale its solution, scale its sales, and nurture the open source community. The current market consists of established but closed-source players, including Auth0, Okta, Firebase, AWS Cognito, and others.
ZITADEL’s founding vision is to create a streamlined, cloud-native identity management platform to accelerate software projects to market. Prioritizing ease of integration, out-of-the-box self-service features, customizable and secure login supporting passwordless authentication, and an API-centric strategy, the platform ZITADEL turnkey solution offers developers unprecedented flexibility.
Developers often spend countless hours building, configuring, and running complex authentication and authorization systems. ZITADEL, which is primarily written in the Go programming language, eliminates these issues with easy-to-use integrations across multiple languages and frameworks. Such flexibility allows developers to use pre-built functions provided by ZITADEL to significantly improve their productivity. Additionally, ZITADEL’s capabilities support existing open source projects that were not built for a cloud-native, serverless environment.
The ZITADEL team is working to continue to enrich the enterprise readiness level of the solution. New capabilities include multi-tenant architecture, unlimited audit trails, enhanced self-hosting, and support for serverless deployments, plus the potential to extend the reach of ZITADEL using a Customization code created in WebAssembly. Combined with cloud-native architecture, ZITADEL’s self-hosting capabilities allow privacy-focused customers to own and control their data by running a dedicated version. With its array of connected efficiency enhancements, ZITADEL’s flexible model is the go-to solution for many leading enterprise customers.
