Network failures and outages are among the biggest risk exposures to any enterprise. They account for significant revenue losses each year and have the potential to disrupt entire businesses. Moreover, the rise in complexity causes security and reliability issues. IP Fabric helps enterprises to prevent incidents and to save substantial time and cost when managing their networks by providing cross-domain visibility and a comprehensive view of the global network infrastructure and its interdependencies. “Customers are using IP Fabric as a foundation for network automation solutions and for sound network strategy planning. But the security teams also love our solution — IP Fabric reveals previously hidden risks, such as critical systems that were not previously monitored or firewall bypasses. Overall, it creates a single source of truth for the network infrastructure,” said Pavel Bykov, founder and CEO of IP Fabric.

IP Fabric’s automated network assurance platform provides plug and play intent-based networking technology to network and security engineering teams. Current customers using IP Fabric to secure smooth network operations and avoid outages include Airbus, SAP, and Major League Baseball.

IP Fabric allows us to have a real feedback loop on network status with a transversal view. We saw benefits from day one. It enables us to consolidate internal tools into a single source, with a proper diagramming feature and extensive network data collection. Furthermore, the embedded network experience included in our predefined reports allows the operation teams to be more efficient in their day-to-day activities,“ said Julien Manteau, Network Solutions Architect Lead at IP Fabric’s customer Airbus.“

The Series A financing will further grow the organization and expand IP Fabric´s market reach to deliver their solution to more global enterprise customers and satisfy the rising demand for the network automation solutions.

Markus Grundmann, Partner at lead-investor Senovo: “We have been impressed by the rapidly growing list of US and European enterprises trusting IP Fabric with their most critical network infrastructure.” Premysl Rubes, Partner at Presto Ventures, adds: “IP Fabric has all the ingredients to succeed globally — product advantage thanks to the industry expertise of founders and confirmed by the rapidly growing customer base. The right timing to enter the market as intent-based networking needs are currently on the rise. And primarily, a talented team committed to the mission. We are happy to be part of it.
