Sonrai Security, an end-to-end data security and compliance platform, has raised $18m in its Series A round.
Polaris Partners and TenEleven Ventures served as the lead investors of the round, with participation also came from New Brunswick Innovation Foundation.
As part of the investment, Polaris Partners managing partner Dave Berrett and TenEleven Ventures founder and managing general partner Alex Doll will join the Sonrai board of directors.
Alongside the fundraising, Sonrai has released its new service which offers data and identity controls across cloud accounts and all data stores. The Cloud Data Control is a hybrid cloud security and risk mitigation solution which offers discovery, classification, mapping and automation tools.
The system can track data and users across any cloud service, including Amazon, Google, Microsoft and others, as well as third-party data sources. Its data security tools can assess and lower risk for identity and data relationships, as well as monitor movement and usage of data.
Clients can use Sonrai to monitor compliance or flag potential violations of regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, PCI and others.
Sonrai Security co-founder and CEO Brendan Hannigan at said, “Cloud adoption affords us a unique opportunity to reimagine how we secure corporate data, and to make a clean break from the limitations of device, data centre and perimeter centric security.
“By putting data and identity at the centre of a security model that spans cloud providers and third-party data stores, Sonrai Security offers a level of control and security never possible in a traditional enterprise network.”
Last year, Polaris Partners took part in the $33m funding round of cybersecurity company Twistlock.
