2021. AppOmni raises $40M for tools to secure enterprise SaaS apps
AppOmni, a startup which has built a platform to help monitor SaaS apps and their activity, provide guidance to warn or block when things might go wrong and fix problems when they do occur - has raised $40 million in a Series B. The company today integrates with more than 100 connectors, platforms used by developers and IT teams at companies to manage the apps that their businesses use, such as tools like Splunk and Sumo Logic. Through this, AppOmni is able to aggregate and normalize event data around those apps, in addition to deeper monitoring in cases where it can integrate with apps themselves (those integrations to date include some of the most popular apps that enterprises use today, including Salesforce and Slack, Zoom, Microsoft 365, Box and GitHub).
2021. Grip Security raises $6M to improve SaaS security
Grip Security, that provides enterprises with full visibility into their SaaS portfolios through enforceable endpoint-centric access controls and new data governance capabilities that work across devices and locations, has raised a $6 million seed round. Most of the popular cloud access security brokers (CASBs) today were founded around 10 years ago and then later acquired by other major players like Microsoft, Cisco and Proofpoint. But Grip Security argues that the problems with protecting SaaS today is fundamentally different from those 10 years ago. The promise of Grip Security is that after a quick installation, enterprises get full visibility into which applications their employees actually use. Yaari wasn’t quite ready to give away the secret sauce of how Grip does this, though. But he noted that this is a non-intrusive solution.
2020. Adaptive Shield raises $4M for its SaaS security platform
Adaptive Shield, a Tel Aviv-based security startup, has raised $4 million seed round. The company’s platform helps businesses protect their SaaS applications by regularly scanning their various setting for security issues. As companies adopt a large variety of SaaS applications, all with their own security settings and user privileges, security teams are often either overwhelmed or simply not focused on these SaaS tools because they aren’t the system owners and may not even have access to them. Adaptive Shield allows to log into SaaS services through its firewall. Currently, the company supports most of the standard SaaS enterprise applications you would expect, including GitHub, Office 365, Salesforce, Slack, SuccessFactors and Zoom. he company already has paying customers, including some Fortune 500 companies across a number of verticals.
