DisruptOps Scores $9M A Round to Scale Cloud Security Operations
March 10, 2020
has raised $9 million in Series A funding from Drive Capital and
existing investor Rally Ventures to scale go-to-market capabilities and
accelerate product development to meet growing market demands.
Global organizations are rapidly expanding into the cloud and while the
cloud can lead to amazing business outcomes of increased agility, cost
savings, flexibility, and innovation, the reality is that cloud at scale
breaks security. These cloud environments consist of multiple teams
deploying hundreds of applications across multiple cloud accounts. This
complexity leads to unmanaged risk and has led Gartner to predict that
over 99% of all cloud security failures will be the customer's fault.
As DevOps and application teams build and operate autonomous
infrastructure environments, a new security operations model is needed.
DisruptOps addresses this challenge with distributed security operations
- delivering security actions at the right time to the right team,
giving them the power to decide and act. With DisruptOps, security can
define global governance policies and collaborate with the rest of the
organization to reduce the risk of cloud computing and automate cloud
security operations at scale. The platform deploys in minutes and
immediately enforces cloud security best practices.
"As today's cloud-enabled businesses continue to increase adoption of
cloud computing, security struggles to keep pace with the volume of
security events and the coordination of the many teams involved in the
response," said Jody Brazil, CEO of DisruptOps. "Our cloud-native
platform is designed to ensure that organizations can take action
quickly and effectively when identifying misconfigurations and threats.
We're excited to partner with Drive Capital and our existing investors
to secure every company in the cloud."
sits at the center of three technology mega-trends: Cloud, Security, and
Automation. Enterprises are now experiencing the challenges of scaling
their cloud security operations," said Andy Jenks, Partner at Drive
Capital. "The ability for organizations to remediate cloud issues and
quickly respond to attacks will completely change how these companies
secure their cloud."
DisruptOps was founded by a team with over 125 years of combined
security and cloud experience. The team is led by CEO Jody Brazil,
previous CEO and co-founder of Firemon, and CTO Brandy Peterson, who
spent over 15 years as CTO of FishNet Security. Co-founders Rich Mogull
and Mike Rothman, the principals of security research firm Securosis,
each bring their 25+ years of security experience and almost 10 years of
hands-on cloud knowledge to ensure DisruptOps remains at the forefront
of the cloud and DevSecOps revolutions.
DisruptOps can help companies identify security issues and take
remediation actions within minutes of deployment.
