Infiot Launches with AI-Powered Intelligent Access for Remote IoT Devices

Infiot, a newly emerged IoT startup, has unveiled its Intelligent Access platform, a cloud-delivered intelligent thin wireless edge that supports wired, wireless and cellular connectivity, according to the release. Infiot’s Intelligent Edge reportedly combines connectivity, zero trust security and edge-computing for remote users, sites and devices anywhere in the world. Infiot said the platform is deployed in production with organizations in manufacturing, healthcare, education, hospitality, retail, and managed service providers.

Backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Neotribe Ventures, Westwave Capital, and Harpoon Ventures, with a total of $15 million in Series A funding, Infiot is led by networking industry veterans CEO Parag Thakore, CTO Anupam Rai, and Chief Architect Sunil Mukundan, the original founding team members of VeloCloud, a SD-WAN company acquired in 2017 by VMware.

“Last few years, particularly 2020, have seen an exponential growth of remote users and internet connected devices (IoT). Existing network access, as well as WAN, technologies are unable to provide zero trust security, universal wireless reach, secure access, and intelligence to these users and devices. Infiot’s founding team shaped the branch edge industry as we know it today. I can’t think of a better team to develop a platform for this fast evolving space remote user and device connectivity space. We are excited to partner with this team of serial entrepreneurs and help them reinvent this market, again,” said Guru Chahal, Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners.

“Perimeterless compute and zero trust security are key for enterprises to support all remote users and IoT devices. Infiot is leading the charge to democratize the edge and provide immersive experiences for digital businesses,” said Parag Thakore, co-Founder and CEO, Infiot. “Our growing base of some of the world’s largest customers and leading managed service provider partners is a testament to our mission.”

Christus Health is an Infiot customer and a not-for-profit health system made up of more than 600 centers, with over 15,000 physicians across community hospitals and walk-in clinics. “As we continue to transform our patient care experience, we are excited to partner with Infiot”, said Rick Lacy, Sr Enterprise Network Engineer, Christus Health. “Infiot’'s Zero-Trust Network Access provides adaptive, identity-aware precision access for our medical workers to deliver care from the comfort of their homes, with the best user experience and significantly lowering our TCO. Looking ahead, Infiot’s thin, extensible wireless edge can be expanded to our medical IoT deployments."
