MORRISVILLE – Cisco joined an A-list of investors in backing Triangle data security and management firm JupiterOne earlier this year. And on Monday the tech giant took its relationship with the company deeper with a new product for cloud asset management.

“Secure Cloud Insights with JupiterOne is a game-changing new offering. Integrating JupiterOne cyber asset context into Cisco technologies provides a deep knowledge base to support customers’ cybersecurity programs,” said Erkang Zheng, founder and CEO of JupiterOne, in an announcement early Monday and first reported by ZDnet.

“In addition, augmenting SecureX, Secure Code Analytics, and the rest of the Cisco security suite, levels up customers’ capabilities,” Zheng added in the ZDnet report.

The deal is the latest big advance for JupiterOne.

Over the last 14 months since launching, Zheng’s company has raised a whopping $49 million for his cyber asset management startup, JupiterOne. (A $30M Series B funding round in May 2021 (led by Sapphire Ventures) and $19 million in Series A funding announced in September 2020).
