OneLogin gets $13M to push easier identity management, logins

OneLogin, an enterprise identity and access management (IAM) specialist, has $13 million in fresh Series B funding to build out its service around the world and to staff up. The company claims customers including AAA, DropBox, Pandora, Pinterest, Tumblr, Uber, Yammer(s msft), Netflix(s nflx), PBS, Conde Nast, News Corp.(s nws), and SteelCase

This cash comes atop $6 million raised to date in seed and A series funding. The San Francisco-based company was founded in 2009 by Thomas Pedersen, a Zendesk veteran. The lead investor this time out is The Social + Capital Partnership with an additional contribution from existing backer Charles River Ventures. Mamoon Hamid, general partner at The Social+Capital Partnership, will join OneLogin’s board.

OneLogIn and rivals like Ping Identity (which snagged $44 million in July) and Okta ($27 million in September), try to ease the pain of companies that use many online and on-premises services across devices by providing single-sign-on access, authentication and other security bolstering measures.

In its statement about the new funding, OneLogin cited IDC estimates that the total IAM SaaS market will hit $1.4 billion by 2016 up from $702.7 million in 2011.
