Normalyze, a data-first cloud security platform, today announced it is coming out of stealth with $22.2M in Series A funding, co-led by Battery Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners. This round brings the company’s total funding to $26.6M to date. Normalyze is an agentless platform that helps organizations better manage sensitive data—and attack paths to it —in today’s complex, multi-cloud environments, protecting customers from large and damaging data breaches. Normalyze’s graph-powered platform provides security teams the ability to continuously analyze, prioritize, and respond to cloud data threats and prevent sensitive data loss.
The rise of cloud computing has increased the complexity of the enterprise attack surface. A recent survey from IDC found that 98% of organizations queried reported at least one cloud data breach in the past 18 months. Data security in the modern digital enterprise has become overly complex due to a variety of trends, including the proliferation of data, an explosion of microservices, rapid cloud adoption, hybrid work environments, compliance, and more. As a result, data stores have become increasingly intricate and the need for visibility becomes paramount.
“Today’s enterprises find their data scattered throughout their various cloud environments with limited visibility of where sensitive data resides. It’s a massive problem that current cloud security offerings aren’t equipped to handle it,” said Amer Deeba, Cofounder and CEO at Normalyze. “We built Normalyze to help companies of all sizes discover, classify and secure sensitive data across all public clouds. With simple onboarding and minimum ramp up time, our platform provides full visibility on data security posture to better gauge risk and proactively respond to sensitive data threats.”
“Our graph-powered platform is a hub that connects all data with assets, identities, accesses, misconfigurations and vulnerabilities to help security teams continuously discover sensitive information, determine attack paths, and automate remediation efforts to secure it,” said Ravi Ithal, Cofounder and CTO of Normalyze. “With the Normalyze one-pass scanner, users can scan structured and unstructured data stores to discover sensitive information based on predefined compliance profiles for PII, GDPR, HIPAA and more with minimal upfront configuration and cost – all while ensuring data never leaves their cloud environments.”
