Auth0 - pronounced Auth Zero - is an identity and authentication platform for corporations and developers that enables easier and more secure access for designated users across multiple platforms. Its platform secures more than 2.5 billion logins per month and has 5 offices spread across the world from its headquarters in Bellevue, WA, to offices in London, Bueno Aires, Toyoko, and Sydney, with customers in over 70 countries.
It recently reached unicorn status during it’s May 2019 Series E funding round, where it raised $103 million and pushed its valuation to over $1 billion.
It’s estimated that cybersecurity spending will exceed $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. In 2004, the cybersecurity industry was worth $3.5 billion and in 2017 that value was up to $120 billion. With forecasts between 8-12% in year-over-year growth in the cybersecurity industry, it’s no surprise that Auth0 reported nearly 80% growth in sales and customers for 2018.
But Auth0 does not operate alone in this space, with other major companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, and IBM all participating in the action. As the industry continues to evolve and grow, Auth0 has positioned itself as a fast-to-implement, secure, and reliable identity and authorization management software platform that is “built for developers, trusted by global enterprises.”
Create an account and take a quick survey about your holdings. This information is crucial to our process. From there, we will perform initial due diligence, begin a valuation analysis, and determine whether the company is a fit for our platform.
We will list the offering to gauge interest from our investor base and report back to you. This process typically takes two weeks, and the offering will be featured on our website and in our weekly investor newsletter during such time.
If there’s enough investor demand, we will work with the company to complete the transaction. Your sales proceeds will hit your account in 2-3 weeks from the completed transaction and voilà, your liquid!
