Aporeto will soon launch its first commercial cloud security product, following a $11.2 million Series A funding round, which closed this week.

Norwest Venture Partners led the latest round. Wing VC led the $3.3 million seed round in December 2015.

So now that the startup has scored $14.5 million to develop its security platform, what will Aporeto’s product look like — and do?

It will include a commercialized version of Trireme, the company’s open source container security project. It will also have other security and management and operations tools. And it won’t be container-centric, Dimitri Stiliadis, co-founder and CEO of Aporeto, told SDxCentral.

Stiliadis, the former CTO of Nuage Networks, said Aporeto will deploy the product this summer.

As businesses increasingly adopt containers, miroservices, and serverless architecture, moving their services and applications to the cloud, “classic security based on the network, based on appliances, based on firewalls around the network doesn’t make sense anymore,” Stiliadis said.
