Tempered Raises $10 Million for Identity-Defined Networks

Tempered Networks, a start-up based in Seattle, has raised $10 million in a series B funding round, for its Identity-Defined Networking (IDN) paradigm.

Tempered Networks' elastic and fully encrypted IDN fabric protects every connected resource with a unique crypto identity, instead of a spoofable IP address. This enables network administrators to cloak any IP or serial-enabled endpoint, machine or network--with no IP modifications. Device-based trust is flexible and portable and extends from any external and public cloud network to internal network hosts and clients.

The new funding was led by Rally Capital LLC with participation from existing investors, including Ignition Venture Partners, IDG Ventures, and Fluid Capital. This brings total funding raised to date to approximately $32 million.

  • Tempered Networks is headed by Jeff Hussey (co-founder, President and CEO). Hussey was also the founder of F5 Networks.
