managing multiple cloud environments will
quickly lead to spiraling costs,
inconsistent configurations, and increased
risk. Common mistakes include exposed data
in public S3 buckets, open network access
from misconfigured security groups, and
wasted money from excessively allocated
resources. Manual processes are inefficient
and ineffective at addressing these
challenges. DisruptOps automates cloud
management by enforcing a customizable
library of best practices ensuring
consistency and security, freeing DevOps
teams to move fast without risk.
“We’ve embraced DevSecOps to ensure both our
developers and operational teams integrate
security into our applications,” said Mike
Murray, Chief Security Officer of Lookout.
“We can’t afford to slow them down by
requiring security functions to be built
every time, nor can we risk a catastrophic
failure caused by human error. DisruptOps’

fast while being secure. It’s a win-win for

DisruptOps has raised a $2.5 million seed
round investment, led by Rally Ventures with
participation from Cyber Security Veteran,

excellence represents an opportunity to
disrupt the existing security status quo and

market,” said Art Coviello, former CEO of

successful management team.”
“Customers look to the Fishtech Group every

Find AND Fix
solutions exist to identify configuration
and policy issues in cloud environments.
These solutions create more noise for
overworked security operations teams, adding
to the list of tasks they can’t complete. By
focusing on both finding AND fixing issues
in cloud environments, DisruptOps reduces
the noise and shrinks the attack surface.
“The volatility of cloud computing and
velocity of DevOps represent threats to
security and operational stability.
DisruptOps elevates cloud operations,
enabling customers to achieve their
objectives of agility and innovation while
maintaining operational control,” said Jody
Brazil, DisruptOps CEO.
Today DisruptOps is extending its early
access program to additional customers ahead
of general availability later in 2018.
