Public cloud security platform Sonrai Security has closed its Series B round on $20m to support the platform growth.
The round was led by Menlo Ventures, with contributions also coming from Polaris Partners and Ten Eleven Ventures.
As part of the deal, Menlo Ventures partner Venky Ganesan will join the Sonrai Security board of directors.
The capital injection will be used to increase research and development efforts and increase the global sales and marketing efforts.
Sonrai Security has built an enterprise identity and data governance platform for AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and Kubernetes.
Its Sonrai Dig service is build on a graph that identifies and monitors every relationship between identities and data within the organisation’s cloud. Through this is can automatically identify identity, data and cloud platform risks, eliminate them ad monitor for new threats.
Menlo Ventures partner Venky Ganesan said, “The shift to the cloud is inevitable. And with that shift, cloud identity and data governance become primary concerns.
“As enterprises move first to one cloud, and later to multiple clouds, the problems around access/privilege management, configuration drift, and sensitive data loss become increasingly complex. Drawing on a proven team with strong domain expertise, Sonrai built an incredible solution that wins over sophisticated cloud and security buyers. We’ve bet on this team before and are proud to back them a second time.”
The cybersecurity startup has raised a total of $38m in funding since it launched.
