Cerby is the comprehensive access management platform for nonstandard applications.

Cerby provides identity teams with the only comprehensive access management platform for nonstandard applications.

Cerby was founded in 2020 by Belsasar (Bel) Lepe and Vidal Gonzalez. The company is headquartered in Alameda, California, with an office in Guadalajara, Mexico.


Cerby harnesses the power of identity providers to remove the need for manual tools and compensating controls (like enterprise password managers) by automating everyday human security tasks based on single sign-on and lifecycle management cues from upstream identity providers. This allows Cerby to protect any application independent of standards support.


Cerby's patent-pending access orchestration engine is the first and only one to make passwordless authentication an immediate reality for nonstandard applications. Cerby saves time and money by automating manual tasks, like offboarding and 2FA enrollment, and providing IAM professionals with deep visibility and control of employee-onboarded applications. 


Cerby's platform has enabled clients like L'Oréal, Fox, Colgate-Palmolive, Dentsu, and Televisa to detect nonstandard apps and guide business users to more secure alternatives, all while keeping everything under the umbrella of their identity provider.


Cerby is backed by Salesforce Ventures, Two Sigma Ventures, Ridge Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Bowery Capital, Okta Ventures, AV8 Ventures, the Incubate Fund, Capital, Founders Fund, Outpost Ventures, Tau Ventures, and others. The company raised $17M in a Series A round on Aug 21, 2023. This brings Cerby's total funding to $32.5M to date.
