The story of BastionZero

BastionZero is leveraging cryptography to reimagine the tools used to manage remote access to servers, containers, clusters, applications and databases across cloud and on-prem environments. The company was founded by a cybersecurity professor and cybersecurity PhD who spent years working together at Boston University. We are backed by top VCs along with experienced individual operators of cybersecurity SaaS businesses.

We started out as a blockchain cybersecurity company and then followed our hearts back into infrastructure cybersecurity. The architecture of BastionZero is inspired by innovations in threshold-based cryptography and born of cryptographers and infrastructure experts looking to simplify the lives of cloud security teams, while modernizing the security models used in the cloud security space.
