DisruptOps Raises $9M Series A to Scale Cloud Security Operations

Drive Capital leads investment in DisruptOps to scale go-to-market efforts of the market-leading cloud security operations platform.

KANSAS CITY--March 10, 2020-- DisruptOps Inc., the leader in Cloud Security Operations, has raised $9M 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.[1]

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.”

“DisruptOps 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 ten years of hands-on cloud knowledge to ensure DisruptOps remains at the forefront of the cloud and DevSecOps revolutions.

DisruptOps can help you identify security issues and take remediation actions within minutes of deployment. To learn more about how DisruptOps can accelerate your digital transformation with their cloud security operations platform, go to http://www.disruptops.com.
