Cog Systems, an IoT device security startup from Sydney raised a $3.5M Series A round from the Grok Ventures led by Co-founder of software firm Atlassian.
Cog Systems primarily provides device protection and secure communication via its D4 platform offering non-bypassable full disk encryption, nested VPNs, separation kernel protection, and isolated key store.
It also provides embedded software SDKs (software development kits).

Customers can use the technology to secure their voice, video, and call data using Cog System’s D4 encryption technology. Mobile, gateways and IoT devices are the main devices secured by Cog Systems.
The startup plans to use the funding proceeds to open a new office in San Francisco. It already operates offices in Sydney and Chicago. “By steering the security architecture from monolithic to modular, we have brought proactive security to governments and the enterprise without compromising the user experience,” said Cog Systems CEO Daniel Potts.
+ US Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and other government agencies are key customers of Cog Systems.
+ D4 Secure, the key technology underpinning the solution of Cog Systems uses two distinct layers of enhanced encryption to protect mobile data from being stolen by hackers.
