IronCore Raises $1.5M for Cloud Privacy and Data Control Platform

The Technology Facebook Should Have Been Using

Boulder, CO, USA – WEBWIRE

If Facebook had been using our technology, they wouldn’t have lost control of the data for 87 million users.

IronCore Labs (, the cloud privacy platform, today announced that it has closed an additional $1.5M of seed funding. The round was led by Next Frontier Capital with participation from Blue Note Ventures, PV Ventures, and several others. IronCore, a TechStars Boulder 2017 graduate, will use the funds to accelerate growth and to support its vision of empowering people and businesses to control their data. This round, composed of new and prior investors, brings the total funds raised to $3M.

“If Facebook had been using our technology, they wouldn’t have lost control of the data for 87 million users.  Today, if you use a cloud service, you don’t know who it’s shared with, you don’t know who the vendors’ vendors are, who their employees are, or who’s been browsing your data,” said Patrick Walsh, CEO of IronCore. “With IronCore, data owners retain control of their data no matter where it lives. They determine who can see it, monitor how it’s accessed, and can revoke that access at any time.”

High profile breaches and new regulations like GDPR are driving new requirements in enterprise software deals. IronCore helps developers meet these requirements quickly and thoroughly, enabling them to close those deals.

“We see enormous opportunity in IronCore, impacting essentially all software,” said Richard Harjes, Managing Partner at Next Frontier Capital. “Their path-breaking technology is transforming how private information is managed in a world of distributed data"
